#BookReview – Tipping Point by Terry Tyler


813786867Back in May last year, I interviewed Terry Tyler as a guest in my ‘Amazing over 50’s’ series, which you can read Here.

As many of you are already aware, Terry is an accomplished author and has many books under her belt and at the time of the interview, she had just finished UK2, the third book in her series, Project Renova.  That was ten months ago and since then Terry has written and published ‘Legacy’ which is the fourth and final part to her series.

I’m a little late in reading Terry’s work, but after following her on twitter for a while now and hearing all the great reviews about this series, I thought I’d give it a go.  I downloaded the first book of Project Renova, Tipping Point to my kindle and well… I couldn’t put it down!!  I am hooked and have already downloaded the next in the series, Lindisfarne.


Tipping Point

‘I didn’t know danger was floating behind us on the breeze as we walked along the beach, seeping in through the windows of our picture postcard life.’

Year 2024. New social networking site Private Life bursts onto the scene. Across the world, a record number of users sign up.

A deadly virus is discovered in a little known African province, and it’s spreading—fast. The UK announces a countrywide vaccination programme. Members of underground group Unicorn believe the disease to be man-made – and that Private Life might not be as private as it claims.

Vicky Keating’s boyfriend, Dex, is working for Unicorn over two hundred miles away when the first UK outbreak is detected in her home town of Shipden, on the Norfolk coast. The town is placed under military controlled quarantine and, despite official assurances that there is no need for panic, within days the virus is unstoppable.

As the country descends into chaos, there are scores to be settled further north….


Personally, in order for me to keep turning the pages of a book, I need to be hooked from the start and care about the characters.  This happened quickly with Tipping Point.  The story line is intriguing and believable, the characters likeable.  Terry’s ability to show how human behaviour would show its true colours in a survival situation is brilliant.  I’m now looking forward to starting Lindisfarne.
