Firstly a massive thank you to the publishers for my copy to review on netgalley. I’m a huge fan of Lisa’s books and I don’t think she could write bad if she tried.
I didn’t whizz through as life got bit hectic this week but it was quite a treat to have it savoured to dip into when i could.
Every parents nightmare happens in this book when a child goes missing. Lisa captures all the emotions felt surrounding this.
Written in alternate timeliness and narratives we get a feel of who the characters really are and they are not as they seem to be in the first chapters.
Secrets are about to be exposed and are people really telling the truth about that night? Why would a friend lie and what scandal will possibly be revealed.
Tense and gripping . With every book by This author you are guaranteed a treat of escapism in the best way ..through the magic of storytelling! This will not doubt be another bestseller. I absolutely loved it .
Published July 22nd so just in time for a summer read.
