Author – Rachel McLean.
My name’s Rachel McLean and I write thrillers that make you think.
What does that mean?
In short, I want my stories to make your pulse race and your brain tick.
Do you often get through a thriller at breakneck pace but are left with little sense of what the book was really about? Do you sometimes read literary fiction but just wish something would damn well happen?
My books aim to fill that gap.

The Blurb –
‘Leave, or die.’
Jess Dyer has won safety for her sister-in-law Ruth and proved her worth as the leader of her refugee community.
Sarah Evans has stood up to her parents and discovered who she can trust.
But the villagers still aren’t welcome. When the local population expresses its anger, can Jess keep everyone safe? And can she hold it together as Steward when someone she loves dies?
And how will Sarah react when her new fiancee Martin receives death threats, telling him he must leave her, and their village?
One Of Us is a gripping thriller about belonging and acceptance. It’s the third book in the Village trilogy, and the sequel to Sea Of Lies.
Today is my stop on the One of Us blog tour. Many thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the chance to read and review.
Although this is the third in the series, you can read it as a standalone, but I recommend you read the first two books as you then get the back stories of the characters.
This book sees the village struggling with more choices, after the disaster they faced when they took strangers in before. They are reluctant to take more people into the village.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and found it a shame that this is the last. It has been a good journey, thinking about an event that could so easily happen. What decisions would we make? Would a tragedy change our morals?
