Leah Mills lives a life of a fugitive – kept on the run by one terrible day from her past. It is a lonely life, without a social life or friends until – longing for a connection – she meets Julian. For the first time she dares to believe she can live a normal life.
Then, on the twentieth anniversary of that day, she receives a card. Someone knows the truth about what happened. Someone who won’t stop until they’ve destroyed the life Leah has created.
But is Leah all she seems? Or does she deserve everything she gets?
Everyone has secrets. But some are deadly.
Verdict: 3/5 stars – worth a read but won’t knock your socks off. Although slow in places and predictable; it was well written and overall a good read.
Leah starts out tedious and her hopelessness annoyed me but her reasons become more clear as more of her back story unfolds…..although a little one dimensional the idea was a good one and the lack of a difference between teenage Leah and the Leah of today I thought really clever as a way to represent Leah’s inability to move on with her life. However, what lets it down for me is the lack of depth to any of the characters; you knew who the baddie was almost immediately and her inability to question anyone or anything in her life starts is truly irritating – surely no one is THAT much of a pushover….
Well written though with good fluidity throughout which meant it was a good read regardless of how irritating the protagonist was.
