About the book
Family is more than blood. More than DNA. You can choose your family.
But what if you choose wrong?
Nicola thought she’d gotten away with it.
Since her husband died, life has been getting back on track. She has a new boyfriend, Phil. A new home, living next door to her brother-in-law, his wife and their children. She is closer than ever with her daughter, Sarah. She even likes her job at the local shop, though she’s had some time off recently with illness. The doctor says its menopause, that it’s nothing to worry about. As if he could know how she’s feeling.
Nicola is finally moving on with her life.
But then she receives the note. Someone knows what she did. They know the secret she doesn’t even think about when she is alone.
Nicola is going to die. Just like her husband did.
Thank you to Tracy Fenton at Complusive Readers for my invitation to the tour and to Trapeze books for my copy of the book in return for a fair and honest review.
Nicola has a secret, her perfect life with her husband Charlie and daughter Sarah was not all it appeared to be. Charlie is now dead and Nicola and Sarah are rebuilding their lives.
Nicola is not feeling herself and she thinks it's her age and it is put down to the menopause.
She starts to receive notes that indicate that someone else may know her secret and then it appears that someone has been in her house.
Her symptoms are getting worse is it the menopause or something more sinister ?
This is a great read if you like a domestic noir thriller, it is fast paced and there are many people who Nicola suspects.
Her sister in law, brother in law even her new partner Phil who she has just let have a key.
The book takes a real twist which I did not see coming and I will not reveal anything else due to my fear of revealing spoilers.
A gripping easy read about family, deception and retribution.
