My Review; I am a huge fan of Claires books, she hasn’t let me down yet. So I had high expectations for this one and yet again I was not disappointed another I devoured, enjoyed and loved. This one messes with your head! It had me suspecting EVERYONE and I still didn’t get it right. Damn. Maybe next time. From the off I could tell something was a bit ooh what’s going on here then… Intrigued.
It’s a well thought out, clever and crafty story that kept me hooked till the last page. Strange how these keep carers keep dying and its not classed as suspicious. Very strange. The outcome well never. Never. That made it for me. I sat through it all thinking I know this one… WRONG.
A very strange family with a hidden past and tensions high. But some relatives are not giving up and want answers over these deaths. Gripping, thrilling, fast paced and a real page turner. Brilliantly written. You’ve done it again claire. 👏 A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend and I already can’t wait for your next book.
