Not for the faint-hearted
STARTING with a car chase and crash and subsequent blaze, this book begins as it means to go on – utterly thrilling!
Louisa wakesinhospital; her husband Sam’s dead and her two young children are gone, victims of the accident in which he was killed. After t he horrors of her past, Louisa’s desperate for a fresh start. Shegets a glossy new job as a designer, buys a new flat and falls on her feet when she meets an Adonis of a toy-boy, Adam.
The only spanner in the worksisSophie, the womanSamhadbeenhavinganaffair with before he died.
Having given birth to Sam’s child, Sophie’s determined to take what she believes she’s owed – the life she’d have had if Sam had lived. From the outset, Louisa earns our sympathy as we discover how badly she was treatedbySamandthosewhoshould have cared for her in the past, but like all thrillers, all’s not as it seems and Crouch delivers an unexpected twist that’ll make you wish the story wasn’t nearly over. A gripping thriller penned by a brilliant writer, but not for the faint-hearted. Review by Lisa Hylton. Which bird featured in title of another Crouch book?
