A strange encounter...
Neve comes across a troubled woman called Isabelle on Waterloo Bridge late one night. Isabelle forces a parcel into Neve’s hands and jumps to her death in the icy Thames below.
An unexpected gift...
Two weeks later, as Neve’s wreck of a life in London collapses, an unexpected lifeline falls into her lap – a charming cottage in Cornwall left to her by Isabelle, the woman on the bridge. The solution to all her problems.
A Twisted secret...
But when Neve arrives, alone in the dark woods late one night, she finds a sinister-looking bungalow with bars across its windows. And her dream home quickly becomes her worst nightmare – a house hiding a twisted secret that will change her life forever…
I had heard about this book a while back, and I was really intrigued by its premise.
While the story grabbed me right away, overall this was just average for me. I didn’t find anything about the mystery all that surprising, and nothing about the story or characters has stayed with me since I finished reading.
On the positive side, I liked the setting, and even though I was pretty sure I knew what was going on, it was fun to read about Neve trying to figure it out.
So while this wasn’t overall a great read for me, it had its moments and if you are looking for a decent mystery, this might grab your attention.
