I am over the moon to be taking part in Kathryn Croft’s Silent Lies blog blitz! 🙂 🙂 🙂
The prologue certainly grabbed my attention and that was it, I was hooked!
Mia is trying to move on since her husband, Zach, committed suicide five years previously. She’s a likeable character and you can’t help but feel for her. She is raising their daughter, Freya, and has since qualified as a counsellor. She is also in a new relationship with Will, but it still a doting daughter-in-law to her late husbands parents, who adore their Granddaughter.
When Alison turns up on her doorstep as a new client and seems to have known Zach, things start to unravel. She’s an odd character and she starts to make Mia question the past. Did Zach have an affair with his student, Josie? Did he commit suicide?
The chapters alternate between Mia at the present time and Josie from five years ago. I couldn’t wait to find out what this Alison thought she knew.
It’s a tense read and at times frightening as Mia seeks the truth. And that ending!!! Woah, I never saw that coming! Absolutely gobsmacked!
Brilliantly written, as always. I’m a big fan of Kathryn Croft!
‘Your husband didn’t kill himself.’
Five years rebuilding your life. Five words will destroy it again.
Mia Hamilton lived the perfect life with her husband, university teacher Zach, and their two-year-old daughter. But everything changed when Zach committed suicide on the same night one of his students vanished.
Five years later, just when Mia is beginning to heal, stranger Alison walks into her life, saying her husband didn’t kill himself.
Fragile, slight Alison leads Mia on a path into Zach’s past, and Mia begins to think she never really knew her own husband. As the secrets revealed get darker, Alison becomes harder to read, and Mia starts to wonder – why is Alison so keen to help?
And then a piece of the puzzle appears in an impossible place, and Mia has to ask, is she losing her mind, or should she be afraid for her life?
An absolutely unputdownable psychological thriller about obsession and buried secrets, with a brilliant twist. Fans of The Girl on the Train, Behind Closed Doors, and Gone Girl will be hooked from the very first page.
