‘The first thing you should know, dear reader, is that I am dead…’
Teacher Pippa wants a second chance. Recently divorced and unhappy at work, she uproots her life to renovate a beautiful farmhouse in the countryside, determined to make a fresh start. But Pippa soon realises: your troubles are never far behind.
When Pippa meets blue-eyed Ryan Marks, he is funny, charming, and haunted by his past. He might just be the answer to all her problems. But how well does she really know him?
She knows the story of his life, the pain that stays with him, the warmth of his smile and the smell of his skin. She knows he can make her laugh over a glass of wine.
Pippa can tell truth from lies. She’d know if she were in danger. Wouldn’t she?
Never invite a salesman into your home …
OMG! This book is simply too crazy for words and I mean that in the best possible way. If you want to have your head turned upside down, inside out, back to front, this is the ideal read for it. And when you think you knew it all, the ending leaves you with your mouth wide open.
Only one thing left for me to say : you have to read it for yourself! 5 stars.
Thank you, S.E. Lynes, Bookouture and Netgalley
