  • A thrilling read

    I do own and admit have yet to read the previous two books by this author Sweetpea and In Bloom, but they will be read as soon as I can get to them after reading this one. The main character in this novel has, can we say a somewhat murky past, although she also has issues full stop in reality. Joanne Haynes as we will call her isn’t exactly the most reliable narrator, as you aren’t sure whether to believe her or not. She is a compulsive liar creating different persona’s, for each person she meets, from bride to be in a wedding shop, to a top author to the man in the doughnut van. But then Joanne isn’t her real name either! Why? When someone who looks like her is murdered in the hotel where she works, Joanne is certain it was her they were after, so she has to run. I love the way the author creates her characters, all well rounded, relatable and believable. For me characters are key, I want to like at least one of them, someone to root for, if I don’t I find it difficult to care about a book. I liked Joanne and I liked Foy. Even the not so nice characters had some good points. There are lots of twists and turns in the plot some small ones some which are shockers. But all cleverly weaved together to make sense. The story is told in a split narrative, the second half where the reader gets to know about Joanne’s past. At times a dark story, but also sad, I have to say I struggled to read some of this due to personal reasons. There is some violence which ironically didn’t bother me, being a reader of lots of crime novels. A thriller, but also a book about, family, mental health and love. An interesting good book, will be looking out for this authors next book. As well as getting round to the two books on my shelf. I would like to thank #netgalley and #HQ for an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest fair and unbiased review.
