Official Book Blurb:
A tragic accident. It all happened so quickly. She couldn't have prevented it. Could she? In a split second, Jenna Gray's world descends into a nightmare. Her only hope of moving on is to walk away from everything she knows to start afresh. Desperate to escape, Jenna moves to a remote cottage on the Welsh coast, but she is haunted by her fears, her grief and her memories of a cruel November night that changed her life forever.
Slowly, Jenna begins to glimpse the potential for happiness in her future. But her past is about to catch up with her, and the consequences will be devastating . . .
For about 50% of the book, I was thinking hmmm the author has stretched the story of a boy being run over by a car and the search for the hit and run driver out a bit here. But then…. the story hit me. I was hoping it would, and I wasn’t disappointed. Having to change my perception of the protagonist halfway through the book was really difficult as you’d spent 50% of the book thinking of her in a certain way but then there were more twists and turns that you weren’t expecting but that you started to suspect.
Really well written, a slow burner but then unputdownable towards the end!
