Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Come Back For Me by Heidi Perks. 

The breathtaking follow-up to the Richard and Judy best seller Now You See Her.

A shocking discovery.

An island wrapped in secrets.

A tiny island community is stunned by the discovery of a long-buried body. 

For Stella Harvey the news is doubly shocking. The body has been found in the garden of her childhood home - the home her family fled without explanation 25 years ago. 

Now, questioning her past and desperate to unearth the truth, Stella returns to the isolated island. But she quickly finds that the community she left isn’t as welcoming as she remembers - and that people in it will go to any length to protect their secrets. 

One thing rings true...you can’t bury the truth forever.

Tedious

Hard to concentrate on the content because it was so slow - far too long and too much filler.
Had to keep rewinding in case I’d actually missed something happening.
The only audible book I have not enjoyed so far.

Tense psychological thriller

This excellent psychological thriller is the first book I have read by Ms Perks, but certainly won't be the last.

I loved the setting of Evergreen Island, where there are only about 100 residents and everyone knows everybody's business. The book alternates between 1993 and the present. In 1993 when Stella was just a child, she and her family left the island in the middle of the night during a storm and she never understood why. In the present bones have been discovered on the edge of the property where Stella used to live and she is drawn back to the island.

I really enjoyed this story of secrets and lies.. The story was intriguing and the tension grew as the book progressed and kept me listening. I loved the descriptions of island life. I tried to guess where the story was going but Ms Perks had me fooled.

Come Back for Me

Cancelled all plans for the weekend and ploughed through - could not put this book down. No spoilers , just read it , deserves my 5star review, and this is the 45th book I've read this year. The narration was engaging and I felt empathy with the characters and am left wanting to know their story after the book has finished.

Decent plot spoilt by sanctimonious heroine

Found the main character so lacking in empathy and full of self righteousness that I found myself becoming increasingly irritated with her which was a shame as I loved the settling and the plot line; found it totally unbelievable that she was a trained counsellor. Overall I don’t think I will be reading any more of this author’s work.
