5.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous Secrets., 31 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cuckoo (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed this well paced novel. It reads like a meaty sort of chick-lit to start with, but then becomes much more sinister and there is no real happy-ever-after, but I thought the ending - despite some grumbles from other reviewers - totally appropriate to the tone of the book.
Polly's husband dies in a car accident. She flees back to the UK, to old friend Rose and her husband Gareth, who have made a comfortable, rural village life for themselves. Gareth is an artist and Rose a master home-maker, looking after the children and their idyllic home with organic precision.
Polly, with her slack rock-chick ways, couldn't be more different, and her two feral boys move into the annex. The axis of Rose's life changes as Polly gains control of the household, and eventually her husband. There is a delicious, dark undercurrent off-setting the homely atmosphere of this story. The power of control via secrets is ever present and grows rapidly to a shocking climax.
Very entertaining.
