The House on Sunset Lake from Sunday Times best seller Tasmina Perry is a heart-wrenching love story bejewelled with mysteries and dark secrets, set in the Deep South. If you loved Santa Montefiore's Songs of Love and War or The Storm Sister by Lucinda Riley, you will adore losing yourself in this audiobook.
A family secret. A house in ruin. A mystery to unravel....
It's 1995 in Savannah, Georgia, where the sunsets are long and golden and the air is hot and heavy with promise. Student Jim Johnson isn't happy when he has to abandon his plans of a carefree month of inter-railing to spend the summer in the Deep South with his mother and his father, a down-on-his luck author who has been sent to Savannah to rediscover his muse. But when Jim meets the beguiling Jennifer Wyatt, the daughter of the owners of Casa D'Or, the mysterious plantation house on the shores of a lake, Jim knows he has made the right decision in coming along. Until an event happens that shatters Jim's and Jennifer's lives forever and sets both their lives on a different course.
Twenty years later Casa D'Or stands abandoned and neglected, a victim of tragic events that everyone wants to keep buried. But when Jim Johnson's boss buys it as the latest acquisition to join his hotel chain, Jim is forced to return to the house and restore it to its former glory. Fate throws him back into the orbit of Jennifer Wyatt, the woman his heart has never truly gotten over, but as he tries to put the ghosts of the past behind him, he unearths a chilling secret that makes him wonder what he has ever really known about the people he loves.

Escapism at its best!! It had everything ....... drama; passion; love; hate and romance. A classy story that took the reader around the world too. This is the first time I have read Tasmina Perry. It won't be the last.
The story was beautifully narrated by Gemma Whelan - I would most certainly recommend this book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
