Tina O’Hailey – Dark Drink @rararesources @tohailey #DarkDrink #SharonBTB

Today I have Dark Drink by Tina O’Hailey on the blog on behalf of Rachel’s Random Resources. Thanks to Rachel Gilbey and The author for my place on the tour and the copy of the book.

Jude and Mercedez have kept deadly secrets from each other.

Jackson’s suicide haunts Jude. She burned all evidence of her brother’s depravity. One less monster in the world, right? Tech-savvy Mercedez is the last living witness to a teenage amateur horror film that ended with a gruesome death. She never told.

A viral video (thanks, Whiskers) brings internet fame—forcing flip-phone wielding Jude to choose between her job as the second female in the VP motorcycle motorcade or her mixologist hobby.

Global visibility brings naked vulnerability—someone has subscribed to Jude’s channel.

Missing neighbors found dead in side-by-side freezers, viral drunk “I quit” videos, spammed porn magazine subscriptions, snail mail severed fingers, sabotaged cave trips, cryptic social media comments, and stalking photos push the codependent friends over the edge (literally, off the side of a bluff) when best friends find out secrets can kill.

The first book in the Dark series. Dark Drink is psychological thriller from an author that’s brand new to me. The first thing I noticed was the cover! Then the blurb just really made me want to see if the pages within fulfilled the promise that the cover gave me.

Dark Drink is a unique rollercoaster of a ride. A character driven story with Jude Mercedez and Whiskers being the ones we are allowed to get to know so well throughout the book. I actually thought that Whiskers was the stand out character throughout, he definitely was the star of the ‘show’.

This is a thriller that starts quite slowly, but does give the reader the history and the background to allow the main plot to play out perfectly. There are, as you could imagine, dark and creepy scenes throughout and this builds the tension steadily, and then the murders begin!

As it becomes apparent that things are going to play out in a dark way the suspense had me turning the pages so fast in order to discover what would happen next.

An author I will definitely be looking out for in the future. If her other books are anything like this one, I know they will be a satisfying and intriguing read. A recommended read if you like character driven suspenseful stories.

Author Bio

Tina O’Hailey

Tina O’Hailey is an animation professor, a caver, and an occasional mapper of grim, wet, twisty caves (if she owes a friend a favor or loses a bet), whose passion is to be secluded on a mountain and to write whilst surrounded by small, furry dogs and hot coffee. Tina was once struck by lightning.

She has served as an artistic trainer for Walt Disney Feature Animation, Dreamworks, and Electronic Arts. Any movie credit she has is minimal and usually found in the special thanks section. The meager credits do not account for the great honor it was to teach talented artists who worked on numerous feature films and games.

She has authored animation textbooks “Rig it Right”, “Hybrid Animation” published by Focal Press, and the Darkness Universe novels “Absolute Darkness”, “When Darkness Begins” published by Black Rose Writing. O’Hailey is a member of the NSS, VES, and International Thriller Writers.

Her favorite motorcycle is her BMW R1200C—mathematically perfect for her short legs, turns on a dime, and is the ugliest bike ever.
