Sam and Lauren were childhood sweethearts and now are finally married. The newlyweds do not have much of a honeymoon period because one is found dead just 3 months later in their secluded cottage in the woods.
Watson does an excellent job of setting the scenery for the cottage in the woods that Sam and Lauren have resided. She has a way with her writing that makes you feel as if you are right there!
I have liked every one of Sue Watson’s books, but this was probably my least favorite. I always love the twists and turns of Watson’s books, and I really liked the shocking way it ended!
The protagonist, Georgie, was just such an unlikeable character for me. I would have preferred an alternating narrator maybe including Lauren in the past or Lauren’s mother.
Nevertheless, I will always pick up Sue Watson books in expectation for a twisty ending and this one had exactly that!
