A firm four star read – Rona’s books do not disappoint! I felt that this was firmly in the ‘Mystery’ genre with plenty of twists. Throughout the whole book I couldn’t work it out – often suspecting several characters at once of being involved in the underyling drama. I love it when books are not predictable. There are some great characters in this book – great because you either love them or hate them. An author that can create such passionate feelings towards a fictional character is talented for sure.
It is a slow starter – the storyline takes a while to take shape. But when it does the build up makes it all worth it. Stick with it if you feel like that in the first few chapters because it’s all part of the shocking elements of this incredible book.
About the book…
Sara made one promise to herself when she was growing up in foster care: that if she was lucky enough to have a family, she’d always do whatever it took to protect them. Looking around her happy home with its warm, bustling kitchen and living room, where her energetic teenage daughters and sweet-natured four-year-old son all eat and live and play together, she knows she’d do anything to keep them safe.
So when Sara’s husband Matt loses his job and every shred of his confidence with it, she knows it’s up to her to bring the family back from the brink. She doesn’t know where she can possibly find the money they need to keep afloat.
Until her boss offers her a deal. He’ll help out. All she has to do for him is one little favour… First it’s a drink. Then it’s dinner. He insists it’s just friendly. But where will it stop? And is it going to protect Sara’s happy home… or destroy it?
