Author Biography

English crime thriller writer A.A. Abbott (also known as Helen Blenkinsop) enjoys escaping with an exciting and emotional read, and that’s what she aims to write, too. Based in Bristol, this psychological thriller is set in the city’s swanky Clifton district. Here, gracious Georgian houses overlook the dramatic Avon Gorge. While it’s a place of beauty, nothing is as perfect as it seems.

'Lies at Her Door' is published in a variety of formats, because accessibility is important to Helen. Like 10% of us, many of her family are dyslexic. While she is not, she wants her books to be enjoyed by readers with dyslexia and visual impairment too. 'Lies at Her Door' is available in dyslexia-friendly and large print editions as well as standard paperback, hardback and ebook versions. (You can also adjust the font on your electronic device to suit your needs.)

Helen likes speaking to book groups, business networks and social circles. She also has fun reading thrillers and short stories at live fiction events and on Zoom. If you're a book blogger, litfest organiser, reviewer or simply adore books, she’d love to hear from you.

Helen is a member of the Alliance of Independent Authors, Bristol Fiction Writers' Group, and Birmingham's New Street Authors.

Reviewed by Rylanne Burdette for Readers' Favorite

When a group of neighbors in an exclusive, well-off neighborhood witness a developing sinkhole that uncovers a human skeleton, the police are determined to find the answers to the many questions that suddenly arise. Lucy, a woman who lives next door to where the body was found, has secrets that relate to the case, but was she the one who committed the murder? A. A. Abbott’s Lies at Her Door: A Psychological Thriller is a slow-burn, atmospheric novel that is sure to captivate readers.

Lies at Her Door by A. A. Abbott is a thriller that kept me on my toes and flipping the pages, wanting to find out what would happen next. The twists and turns throughout were unexpected, and I enjoyed watching the plot unfold. I think the only thing that irritated me was Neil’s character. I felt that he was unnecessarily harsh and standoffish, even when he had little reason to be. I wasn’t sure if I could trust him to do his job well, but I also think that that is part of what makes thrillers entertaining and addictive. I have been on such a thriller kick recently and am glad I was able to pick this one up. I had an enjoyable time reading this book and would recommend it to thriller fanatics who are looking for a quick read with a couple of points of view from which to follow the action!
