This is a story where keeping secrets and telling lies Means that someone you love sadly dies . . . . As usual for this author, it is also very true That whilst reading this book the time just flew As for the twists at the end Nothing for me did portend! When childhood sweethearts marry each other No one was happier than his mother The families have been friends for many years So how could they foretell it would end in tears? When the bride dies, in just a few months or so, What happened is all that his Mum wants to know The police seem convinced that he's the killer But what happens next is a real chiller. What a great read, a page turner, too Kept me reading, searching for that clue That would reveal just who did the deed And why it happened, what was the need? An enthralling story, where the whole mystery Is skilfully entwined with family history. With blackmail, cover ups, secrets and more A crime thriller read of the kind that I adore. For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you, I throughly enjoyed reading it and this is my honest review.
You can never truly know what goes on behind closed doors…
My darling son, Sam, is marrying his childhood sweetheart and I couldn’t be prouder of the man he’s grown into. Walking out on his abusive father all those years ago was the best thing I ever did. And today he stands, tall and handsome, saying ‘I do’ to my dream daughter-in-law. If I hadn’t pushed them together all those years ago, he might never have found a girl as perfect as Lauren. It’s true what they say, mother always knows best.
But weeks later, Lauren is dead and police cars fill the driveway of their idyllic countryside home. As they question Sam, I sense he’s hiding something. Why won’t he look me in the eye? And who does he rush off to meet as soon as the police are gone?
Desperate, I do what every good mother would do: I let myself into Sam and Lauren’s bedroom. What I see, I will never be able to forget. My son’s beautiful new wife was hiding a dangerous secret. Can I clear my son’s name? And could my life be in danger now too?
A completely gripping, utterly twisted thriller that will leave your jaw on the floor. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, The Wife Between Us and The Woman in the Window.
