Blurb; Cara De Rosa is the heart of her large family and community in London. Her restaurant business is booming. She’s found a second chance at love, and an impending marriage is on the horizon. But there’s no such thing as a perfect life. And the good times never last forever.
When Cara’s health suddenly falters, her family’s world turns upside down in the blink of an eye. In a bed-ridden haze, she confides in Sienna, her favourite grandchild, that her rapid decline may be at the hands of one of her own.
Sienna, a young, single mother, is reeling in the wake of her husband’s unsolved death. She is haunted by crippling anxiety and misplaced guilt, heightened by suddenly finding herself in a race against time to save Cara’s life. As she begins to pull at the strings of a tangled family web, she’ll reveal disturbing secrets, decades of deceit and shockingly serious crimes.
My Review; My first book I’ve read by this author. This is a Standalone read and it’s brilliant. I devoured it. Gripping. Thrilling. Race against time to get the answers she wants and needs to save a life. I loved Caras character, she really is the head of the family as they say. Sienna is one strong, determined character who will do anything for Cara, even launching her own investigation against her own family. Kept me on my toes throughout and had my belly grumbling with all the mention of food throughout.
A happy ending for most of the family. But plenty of truths, secrets, lies and affairs have to come to the surface first which could tear this family apart. There’s always something going on to keep the pages turning. Very impressed. A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend.
