The sunroom at the back of the house is just as I remember. I can’t taste homemade lemonade or smell oatmeal cookies without thinking of home, of the beautiful cliffs of Martino Bay, and I feel welcomed. But all thoughts of a happy family reunion are destroyed the moment I see him… He’s as handsome as I remember: broad shoulders, piercing blue eyes, hair the colour of burnt toffee. The man who once meant the world to me. The reason I fled eleven years ago. I’ve never told anyone the terrible mistake I made that night. The secret we share. I’m still haunted by the crashing waves at the bottom of the cliffs, the blood… But what is he doing at my sister’s house? And then I see her. My baby sister. She smiles, she tips her hand so I can see the ring. And his arm slides around her waist, pulling her close…
OMG this is a crazy book, but oh soooooo gooooood!
I loved, loved, loved the lies piled upon the deceit piled upon the betrayal. It was like unpacking an early birthday gift wrapped in tons of paper and with every layer I pulled away another secret was revealed. I really admire the author’s brains. It’s an amazing story she came up with.
It’s highly entertaining. It’s devastating. It’s heart breaking. It’s ruthless. It’s… I could keep going on for quite a while. You just have to read it to experience it too.
Jealousy is not only called the green eyed monster. It turns people into monsters as well, but karma is also a force to be reckoned with.
I have already read a lot of amazing books this year. This one deserves a place in that category for sure.
It just was horribly good. 5 stars
Thank you, Nicola Marsh and Bookouture
