Can a secret be worse than a lie?
Every time Kate Duggan looks in a mirror she is confronted by her guilt; a long, red scar reminding her that she was ‘the one to walk away’ from the car accident. Not everyone was so lucky …
On the surface her fiancé Rob is supportive – but the reality is different. He’s controlling, manipulative and, if the phone call Kate overhears is anything to go by, he has a secret. But just how dangerous is that secret?
When Kate begins work at a firm of private investigators, she meets Ben Parker. His strong and silent persona is intriguing but it’s also a cover – because something devastating happened to Ben, something he can’t get over.
As Kate and Ben begin their first assignment, they become close. But, what they don’t realise is how close to home the investigation will bring them, or who will be hurt in the process …
Where do I start? It's got everything! Romance, suspense, dealing with the past, humour......you name it, it's in there!
The characters are all well developed, especially Kate & Ben, and I love the hints of mystery that appear every so often. It kept me reading well into the night (you must stop doing this to me Choc Lit!) Scars take many different forms, physical and mental and this novel examines that really well.
Rob is horrible - that's all, just horrible!
I love how this novel moves, you are literally swept along with it.
Thank you to Choc Lit for giving me an ARC in exchange for an honest review. You did it yet again!
