After a lifetime of secrets how far would you go for the truth?

An unputdownable new psychological thriller, full of twists you won’t see coming, from Chris Curran.

Your whole life has been a lie…

One email is all it takes to turn Eve’s world upside down. It contains a picture of her true birth mother, Stella, and proves that Eve’s entire life with her adoptive parents has been a lie.

Now she must unravel the mystery of Stella’s dark past. But what Eve finds will force her to take enormous risks, which put her – and her new-born baby – in immediate danger…

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/NetGalley, Killer Reads (Harper Collins) and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.

So, here’s the deal. I wanted to like this book. I really did. But, sadly, I didn’t. I mean it was a horrible book. There was some page turning suspense and wondering what was going to happen, especially the very begininng. However, the writing style fell flat for me.

One minute we were reading Eve’s part of the story and next was Stella, right in the middle of the chapters. Another minute we were reading about Maggie, Ben, and David and how they fit into the story.  It got way too discombobulating and by the end of the story, I was left back pedaling trying to find out what I just read and why it ended the way it.

However, that is just my opinion. I do encourage you to read this as it may be one that you would enjoy and find the writing style is good. I will, in the future, try more books from this author as even authors can have some off days. This is a high 2.5 star rounded up to a 3 rating for me.

About Chris Curran

I was born in London but now live in St Leonards-on-Sea near Hastings, on the south coast of England, in a house groaning with books. I left school at sixteen to work in the local library – my dream job then and now – and spent an idyllic few months reading my way around the shelves. Reluctantly returning to full-time education I gained my degree from Sussex University. Since then I have worked as an actress, script writer, copy editor and teacher, all the time looking forward to the day when I would see my own books gracing those library shelves.
