Linda Huber - The Paradise Trees
on 15 May 2014
What a wonderful book! It kept me on edge of my seat all the way through. I loved the way two mysteries ran side by side; Alicia's memories of an abused childhood return as she takes her daughter back to the house where her own nightmare began.
This is cleverly woven into a gradually emerging sinister presence of the Stranger who plans to take her own daughter and ultimately her. When I thought I knew who The Strangers was, the plot made me change my mind - so often.
It is extremely well written, one of those books that gives total pleasure. I did manage to guess towards the end, but then the plot had me gripped - would they get there in time! It's clever, with a lead character that you can identify with. Can't wait for The Cold Cold Sea which I believe is the next Linda Huber offering; she is a definite author for my collection.
