5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!, 4 July 2014
Brilliant !!!! I simply couldnt stop reading this!! How on earth does this author come up with such gripping stories, and the plots !

Such in intricate, tightly woven storyline which was full of twists and turns but not at all obvious. The reader was both intrigued and gripped by curiosity, angst, fear for the main character Olivia and her children who have disappeared

I just dont see what was so amazing about it......It was the opening couple of chapters, setting the scene and introducing the characters....nothing earth shattering. And I know this authors fans might find this hard to read, (if they do!) but I'm not overly bothered about who the father is! Quite why this girl has been painted as a bit of a slut, Im not sure....but it seems that it could have been one of quite a queue!

I have read Summers Child incidentally, which I didnt… Read more
