This book was ok, but nothing surprising. At least the writing didn't annoy me like some books do these days. Yes, I've read a lot of books over the years and still trying to find someone to replace Maeve Binchy.
Nice one & like
Sue Fortin is a talented writer of suspense and certainly knows how and when to feed the reader with twist after compelling twist. This is the story of Erin, partly written in first person and told over a dual timeline. Sixteen year old Erin is in love, pregnant and being told what is best for her by adults. They all make sense but she doesn't want to hear it. Present day, ten years later, Erin is living in London working at a beauty salon when she receives a blast from the past phone call from her old school friend, Roisin, in Ireland. The call is disturbing and unsettling for Erin and within hours she receives another urgent call from her sister, Fiona, informing her that their father is in intensive care with a serious head injury. From here Erin is forced back to Ireland to be with her family and knows she will also have to face the dreaded Roisin who she knows she will bump into in the small village they live in. Sue Fortin writes beautifully and competently with unease and tense moments at each chapter ending. Her characters are realistic and visual with enough description to make them authentic without becoming mundane or boring. There is just the right amount of teasing romance to add to the suspense but without distracting from the gripping storyline. The text is rich and written with depth and meaning, and several times I thought I'd guessed what was coming, sometimes I did guess correctly but it didn't spoil the outcome at all because there was twist and revelation, one on top of another. I found the book totally compelling and couldn't put it down. I would thoroughly recommend if you like psychological suspense and I will certainly read more by Sue Fortin.
The sample was soooo good. I must have this book.
