This was my very first read by Samantha Hayes. Once I read the synopsis on the back I couldn’t wait! I generally read crime & thrillers but felt like trying a different genre and this novel did not disappoint at all.
Most of my reading is done on a Kindle but my daughter gave me this novel as a paperback and convinced me to re-visit the joys of opening a brand new book and enjoying the smell of the newly printed pages.
What also excited me was the cover image, in this case dark and mysterious, These are all things I suddenly realised I had missed on an e-reader, especially when on this occasion I was going to be completely indulgent and cosy up for an whole afternoon of reading. Bliss!
WHAT WE LOVED:
Welcome to the world of the two main characters Gina and Harriet, mother and daughter. Try if you can to imagine how you would feel and process the sudden and unexpected disappearance of your husband and father and you will be immersed in the minds of the storyteller and characters.
