Thoroughly gripping and full of suspense from the very first page,
This review is from: Never Coming Home: A breath-taking, award-winning psychological thriller (Dark Secrets Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Do you know that feeling when even though you have to go to school or work in the morning, you still stay up until 2 a.m in order to finish a book? Now, that's what happens when you find something fantastic. And that's how it was with Never Coming Home. When I picked it up, I expected to read a romance or maybe a family drama. But boy, was I wrong. What I thought would be a family saga with a bit of suspense and with some romance on top turned out to be a gripping romantic thriller. It just blew me away.
Evonne Wareham's masterpiece was thoroughly gripping and full of suspense from the very first page. You literally cannot guess what's going to happen next which makes Wareham's book even more brilliant. To make it even better, it was quite easy to connect to to the characters. I wasn't really keen on Kaz if I'm completely honest, but Devlin and Kaz's mother's characters definitely make up for this. It was interesting to see that even though they're both grown ups, Kaz still behaved like an angry and rebellious child at times and her mother was the one who made sense of everything and tried to calm her down or make her think logically.
As for Devlin, I think he was the most interesting character in the story and definitely my favourite one. Apart from the fact that he's good looking, there's something about him that makes you love him even more. What I liked the most was that we don't know much about his past and he's full of secrets. We know nothing about his family or his life in general and it's as if he himself doesn't want to remember either. He built up a cold and confident exterior but at the same time, you can't help feeling that there's something in there, deep down, a vulnerable side to him that he tries to control. I'm always drawn to these types of characters so naturally, Devlin was a first-class addition to the novel.
I could go on and on about how sensational Never Coming Home was but I think you'll believe me if I say it's a must read. I've ready a lot of mysteries in my life but Evonne Wareham takes suspense to a whole new level. It's shocking, it's dark, but at the same time quite hopeful and optimistic - you'll love it.
