Carmel & Phil Baxter are enjoying the splendid BBQ that their elder daughter, Suzanne has organised just three weeks after the birth of Ollie, their first grand-child.
Their younger daughter Naomi arrives with her partner, Alex armed with a bottle of champagne to celebrate Alex finally landing a job as he's recently qualified as a solicitor.
On the way home, Naomi and Alex are involved in a shocking road accident. A little girl is killed and Naomi suffers major injuries and also memory loss. Naomi is charged with the death of the girl and Carmel can't believe that her daughter would have driven drunk so sets out to find out the truth.
So ..... did I like the style used by the author? Carmel talks then Naomi talks ..... got a bit much. A terrible shame because this story should have had the power to make the reader go "What would I have done?" "What if it had been my child accused of this shocking crime?" Instead, I got to the end and breathed a sigh of relief that I'd actually managed to read to the final page. Such a shame, because I normally like Cath Staincliffe.
It was a fascinating story about an accident which kills someone and how it affects those left behind that were in the car and their families. Something that could easily happen to us of us, I'm sure. I really enjoyed it and there was plenty to hold my interest.There were some very funny moments in it despite the grim story as well. A lot of it I guessed ahead of time but that in no way spoilt it.
I didn't like that she opted suddenly now for American spellings !! Eulogized/socializing/modernized...not good in Manchester !! Odd words were missed from sentences, too-like of/in. There weren't any apostrophe mistakes, though !! I'll definitely read more by her, just not the Sal Kilkenny set.
Despite only giving it 3 stars I found it a good enough book, and I wanted to carry on reading it, but by about half way through I could guess what had really happened. I continued though just to make sure I was right ;-)
