  1. Great blurb/teaser, Cally. You’ve got me intrigued already.

    I’ve just finished reading The Accident, and got to say it was a very enjoyable read. I think both teens and adults will enjoy this. Loved the concept of having diary entries in between chapters, gives a better insight on the character and situations. And was surprised when I’ve read that the author is from Bristol as well!
    Well done!

  3. Mark says:

    I’m most of the way through ‘The Accident’ and I am really enjoying it!

  4. Debbie hixon says:

    Are these books a series ? And how many ..thx

  5. Emma says:

    I saw ‘The Lie’ advertised on my commute and decided to give it a go. Really glad I did! So much so that I’ve now read ‘The Accident’ too and am very excited to read ‘The Missing’ next year. Well plotted, fast-paced and compelling. Highly recommend to everyone!

      Thank you, Emma. I’m delighted to hear that. I think The Missing is the best book I’ve written so I’d love to hear how you think it compares to the other two.

    Blimey, tip-top stuff, Ms T. Came across ‘The Lie’ by chance, and steamed it in under two days. Lovely stuff. Strewth, and I thought I’d known a few dodgy birds over the years…….Very Marwood ( which is never a bad thing in my book). Looking forward in the not too distant to putting my trotters up and getting stuck in to ‘The Accident’. It’s always a good feeling when one finds a new author – one that can actually write. I doff my trilby to you, CLT. Salut.

    • cltaylorauthor says:

      Thanks Neil. Very flattered to be compared to Alex Marwood. Have you read The Darkest Secret yet? Brilliant. Thanks so much for the kind words. My ego is bolstered! 🙂

  7. Neil B says:

    Thanks for the reply, Cal. Nice to hear from you. Nope, yet to read her latest. Can’t stand kindle. Gonna have to wait six months (SIX MONTHS!!!!) until it’s released ‘properly’. Passed ‘The Lie’ on, by the way, to the missus who’s devouring it as we speak. She can be a harsh critic so I await her verdict with interest……Oh, and one final thing: can you recommend any other UK authors in similar vein to yourself/Marwood et al. I do like a good thriller……All the best. NB.

    • cltaylorauthor says:

      If your wife doesn’t like it Neil, don’t tell me! Re similar authors, have you read any Mark Edwards (The Magpies, Follow You Home etc), Tammy Cohen, Paula Daly, Sarah Hilary? All of them brilliant.

  8. Neil B says:

    Nice one, CT. Shall investigate forthwith. Minor quibles aside ( which we shan’t discuss on a public forum), the Good Lady gave you 8 out of 10. She enjoyed it. ‘It was good; I’d definitely read her again’, she said. An 8? I’d take it….

  9. christine harrison says:

    hi ive just read The accident loved it.. now half way through The lie and again another good read looking forward to The missing

    • cltaylorauthor says:

      Hello Christine. So pleased to hear that you’re enjoying my books. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I really appreciate it.

  10. Ali J says:

    So far have read the Lie and just finished the Missing, both books were brilliant, but the Missing I actually could not put down and found myself actually looking forward to going to bed so I could read more of it.

  11. Molly B says:

    Have just finished reading The Accident, in two days on my iPad. Could not put it down. Riveting! It was given as a ‘free ‘book’ on line, and therefore I had no expectations as to how good it would be. Now i’m off to purchase ‘The Missing’ and ‘The Lie’. Thank you Cally, and also for generously recommending similar authors.

      Hi Molly, so pleased to hear that you enjoyed The Accident and are keen to read my other books. Are you in Australia?

  12. Molly B says:

    Yes Cally. On a small island about an hour’s flight from Darwin.

  13. Simon Barton says:

    I’ve read all three of your books, one after the other.
    I wasn’t able to put them down. Excellent stories.
    More please!

    • cltaylorauthor says:

      Thank you, Simon. I’m currently writing the fourth book. It’ll be out on 6th April 2017.

  14. Molly Bence says:

    Hi Cally. Just read The Missing in two days..could not put it down. Excellent! Looking forward to returning home to Sydney, as I have order The Lie to be delivered to me. Why don’t you consider coming to Oz, when your next book comes out?
    All the best, MollyB

    • cltaylorauthor says:

      Hello Molly, thanks so much for getting in touch. I’m so pleased that you enjoyed The Missing and have also ordered The Lie. I’d love to come to Australia one day. Fingers crossed it happens!

  15. Eve says:

    Just reading ‘The Lie’ after finishing ‘The Accident’ and ‘The Missing’. Amazing novels!!! Can’t wait to read more. I had a year gap from reading and these were just what I needed to get me back into it! Wow!

    • cltaylorauthor says:

      Hello Eve, thanks so much for leaving a message. I’m thrilled that my novels have got you back into reading after a year off. What a huge compliment! The next book will be out on 6th April 2017 – just finishing the first draft now!

  16. Lizzie B says:

    Hey Cally. Two weeks ago I was standing in front of the books in a supermarket; one book in my hand, trying to choose another as they were on 2 for 1. A lady who was kneeling on the floor in front of the shelves passed me a book, and said “Try this.” It was The Missing. I read the blurb, thanked the lady for her recommendation and went on my way. The day before that, I graduated in Maths from university, and I haven’t read a book for my own enjoyment in about 4 years now. The Missing seemed like the perfect book for me to rediscover the bookworm in me from when I was a little kid.

    I started reading it as soon as I got home that day, and I finished it yesterday. It’s the first time in a VERY long time that I have picked up a book on every consecutive day until I finished it. It was a truly gripping, brilliant book. My instinct was right, as throughout the book I expected that *that* character would be closely related to Billy’s disappearance! I’ve just ordered The Accident and I can’t wait for it to arrive- after that, I will order The Lie as well. I’ve passed The Missing onto my Mom now, who plans to start reading it soon. I feel like I’ve never been so excited to be into books.

    Thank you for your writing. You have been the one to get me back into reading and I’m really very grateful!

    • cltaylorauthor says:

      Hi Lizzie, thank you so much for getting in touch. Your message has genuinely made my day. I am so thankful to the lady who handed you my book (what a lovely woman!) and really touched that The Missing got you back into reading. That means so much to me and makes all the hard work that goes into a book worthwhile. I hope your mum enjoys The Missing and you enjoy The Accident and The Lie. All the best, Cally X

  17. Jane says:

    Loved ‘The Lie’ will try to read others now!! Only thing I found jarring was the use of ‘Mom’ , as opposed to Mum, by an English writer writing about English girls. Apart from that, intriguing story. Regards, Jane

    • C.L. Taylor says:

      Hi Jane, I’m glad you enjoyed The Lie. I can’t remember if I wrote mom or mum. The American version of the book almost certainly used mom. But some parts of the UK use ‘mom’ rather ‘mum’ too! Either way, I hope you enjoy the other books (The Accident uses ‘mam’ because the character is Welsh).
