Book Description

1 Aug 2013

Arriving on the windswept Ile de Ré off the coast of France, Tabby Dewhurst is heartbroken and penniless, unable even to afford a room for the night. Then she overhears a villager repeating aloud the access code to her front door and, hardly believing her own actions, Tabby waits for the villager to leave and lets herself into the house . . .

And so she enters the strange, hidden world of Emmie, whose sudden offer of friendship is at odds with her obsession with her own privacy. Soon Tabby begins to form suspicions about Emmie, suspicions that will lead her back to England - and to a scandal with shattering consequences.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good in Parts but Not in Others 24 July 2014
There are 2 main characters in this book - Tammy & Emily Marr. Tammy is wandering the world when she ends up in a small town in France with no money & no friends. She sees Emmie leaving her house with a rucksack & hears her entry code. Thinking she has left for a while Tammy enters to stay the night. Emmie hasn't gone for a night & arrives back. Emmie is a lady with a past which we, the readers, learn about but which Tammy doesn't discover until later in the book. We follow Emmie & Tammy's lives in France, Emily's past & then move on to the future when Tammy tries to solve the injustices which she feels have been done to Emmie/Emily.
This book was very slow to begin with. There is a lot of back story concerning Emily's relationship with a married man, Arthur Woodhall. We learn a little about Tammy's past including her affair with a married man. At this point in the story neither of these women appear to be particularly pleasant. Neither of them sees anything wrong in their behaviour or the behaviour that it leads to - in Emily's case lying to get time off work to meet Arthur and missing time with her dying Father. I just couldn't take to either of these women which made me reluctant to continue with the book. There does need to be a character to like to enable the reader empathise with the story but unfortunately the only likeable characters are very much minor bit players.
There is, however, a very interesting section in the middle of the book which made me wish to continue. Following various events (which I won't detail as it would spoil the story) Emily Marr becomes the subject of a media and social media witch hunt. She is seen as a vicious and devious woman who would stop at nothing to break up Arthur's family.

5.0 out of 5 stars book review 21 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a really good book which kept my interest until the very end. It starts off as 2 stories running concurrently and it becomes clear eventually how they are connected. A very clever and interesting story. I shall be reading more books by Louise Candlish.

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't put it down! 14 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I couldn't wait to get this book all to myself - I've loved Louise Candlish's other novels, so I saved this for my holiday reading. It's just as beautifully written as her other books, with emotional highs and lows, and twists and surprises along the way. I don't want to spoil a thing about it, so will just say that it deals with really relevant issues at a personal level and at a bigger societal level too. The characters manage to be believable and feel real, but aren't predictable at all. It has some jaw-dropping moments, so give it a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars A perfect beach read 31 July 2014
My first ever review was for a Louise Candlish book called 'The Day You Saved My Life', which I was given by a lovely book blogger friend. I thoroughly enjoyed that book but this book was riveting. Such a compelling story with twists and turns you would never expect. This book has emotional highs and lows and the relevant issues are dealt with very well. However I would say that the ending left me wanting more. I don't feel it was left how it should be. I loved the fact it was set in France and that the cover is stunning. A perfect beach read! Will be purchasing more of her books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 1 Aug 2013
By Kate
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a compelling read, the kind of book you don't want to end. The emotions are intense, the story is intriguing, the atmosphere is full of suspense with clever twists and turns - no way did I see the big one coming. I couldn't put it down and continued to read it even when feeding the cat or shelling peas for dinner. Ms Candlish vividly brings to life her two main voices - Emily and Tabby - with exquisite writing and an emotional honesty that is both gruelling and exhilarating. Ruthlessly their pretences and self-delusion are stripped away. I loved them both and was gripped by the story of their growing friendship. Don't miss this one - it's a brilliant read.

A very readable book. Characters were interesting and the story. Wove them together well. Not one of Louise Candlishs best stories but a very good read for all that.

I really enjoyed this book. It kept me guessing right until the 'reveal'. I can thoroughly recommend it, and am now looking for more books by the same author.

5.0 out of 5 stars unexpectedly good 17 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I thought this book would just be a nice little story but it was unexpectedly good. I enjoyed it so much. So cleverly written with a super twist at the end. Easy to read and a real page turner. I have now bought other books by the author and they are just as good. I'm definitely a Louise Candlish fan.
