Summary

The surprising new novel from the Sunday Times Top 10 best-selling author of Behind Closed Doors and The Moment She Left.

Andee Lawrence is in heaven. Well, the South of France to be exact. Ex-detective Andee has swapped freelance investigation and a broken marriage for two months in Provence, renovating a beautiful villa with the new man in her life.

Pottering around a small picturesque town on an early summer's day, she is at peace. But her world is about to be shattered. 'Remember me?' Two words spoken by a woman from the back of a car that say so much yet reveal so little. As the car drives away, Andee is left reeling, overwhelmed by shock, confusion, self-doubt and mounting trepidation.

Almost 30 years ago, 14-year-old Penny had disappeared from her family's life, never to be heard from again. It is the missing child case that has haunted Andee her whole life. And now Penny - Andee's sister - is back. The question is: why?

A frustrating piece

I’m not often moved to write reviews. When I am it is most often because I’ve found a book particularly poor. So it is with this one. The narrator does what she can with what she’s been given to work with. The story is rubbish, dreadful, dreadful and more dreadful. I was glad when it finally ground to a halt. I suspect the author was too. You will be .... if you make the mistake I made and buy the wretched thing.

What the word 'ok' was invented for

I can't really give any criticism for this book, but then nor any praise. It was just....ok. The story was again, just ok, but I feel like it could have been wrapped up in less than half the time as there just wasn't enough meat to it. Many chapters felt forced to fill the space and you'd have to wait two or three chapters for the story to move along. Just felt a bit bland I'm afraid.
