Hannah Riley and her musician husband, Will, hope that a move to the Suffolk countryside will promise a fresh start. Hannah, a human rights worker, is desperate for a child and she hopes that this new life will realise her dream. Yet when the snow comes, Will is working in London and Hannah is cut off in their remote village.
Life in Tornley turns out to be far from idyllic: Who are the threatening figures who lurk near their property at night? And why is her neighbour so keen to see them leave? Plus Will's behaviour is severely testing the bonds of trust.
Hannah has spent her professional life doing the right thing for other people. But as she starts to unbury a terrible crime, she realises she can no longer do that without putting everything she's ever wanted at risk. But if she does nothing, the next victim could be her....

I think that both Louise Millar and Clare Corbett should be congratulated as somehow from a ridiculous storyline full of plot holes, unbelievable happenings and stereotyped characters they have created an utterly compelling audiobook that I could not stop listening to ! This is definitely the weakest of Louise Millar's three novels but I still had to listen compulsively to find out what happened at the end. As ever, Clare Corbett narrates beautifully and it is probably her narration that stopped me abandoning it half way through.
Avid listener of books, enjoying a variety of genres such as thrillers, chick lit or crime peppered with the odd historical or fantasy drama
An enjoyable read that had me wanting to know what happens right from the start
The moment her new friend lies to her partner and when a hiding place is discovered
Builds the atmosphere and tension well
A big fan of Louise Millars books and this is just as good as the earlier books. A good holiday read with the just the right level of suspense to keep you hooked
