When Milla Graham arrives in the picture-perfect village of Buckley, she tells everyone she’s investigating the murder of her mother who died eighteen years ago. But there’s already one Milla Graham buried in the churchyard and another about to be found dead in the derelict family mansion.
Obviously she’s lying.
Detective Inspector Ben Taylor has no life outside the police force. Even his own colleagues think he’s a boring stick-in-the-mud. But now he’s met Milla and his safe, comfortable life has been turned upside down. She’s crashed his car, emptied his wallet and is about to get him fired.
He knows she’s a liar because she cheerfully told him so.
Unless she’s lying about that too …
When I first had my blog up and running Louise was one of the very first authors to contact me about reading her book and I was so excited! I want to publicly apologize for it taking this long to get my review up as I read the book back in July. Not once has she badgered me or asked how it was coming along and she is an absolute doll for being so understanding. This book is worth the wait though; while it may not have had a great deal of advertising, don’t let that fool you. This book is a gem!
We, as readers, always like finding THAT book. You know, the diamond in the rough. The one that isn’t being marketed as the next Gone Girl. The one you heard about from a friend of a friend of a friend. This friends is it! Maybe it’s just me, but this book has all the bells and whistles to stand on it’s own without being compared to anything else. The author did a fantastic job of taking me every which way, and I certainly didn’t have it figured out before she revealed everything. This wasn’t your amateur, first time self-publishing read; I’m shocked more people aren’t talking about this book, but maybe it’s simply because they haven’t heard of it! Whatever the case, put it on your radar. I want to find out if this book was simply written for me or if it’s this good for everyone else.
To sum it up, this one is wonderfully paced and it truly grips you from the first page. I was just as interested in the relationship between Ben and Milla as I was in the murder investigation. I’ll leave it at that, but if you are interested in reading this one it is (at the time of this writing) free for kindle unlimited or $.99 to purchase on Amazon HERE. Happy reading to you all and do let me know if you choose to pick this up! Thanks Louise for providing my copy; it was my pleasure to provide an honest review!
