Aidan and Lia rekindle their romance but Lia is unsure. As she digs deeper into the mystery she begins to doubt everyone. There is a feeling of tension as the book goes on, leading you up to the reveal. That is why I found it very hard to put down.
Norfolk itself is like a character; adding its own gothic bleakness. At times it almost feels haunted with its foggy marshes and empty winter scenes.
Aidan is lovely character: fiercely loyal, broken but a hero at heart. He is full of mystery and surprise, and not who he first appears to be. I could see why Lia was drawn to him, now and all those years ago. Lia is nobody’s fool and unravels the mystery on a slow boil; always revving the suspense up.
I would consider Up Close as a crime mystery with a romantic element. I loved the dark atmospheric feel to the book, It reminded me of those gothic Mary Stewart novels. I really enjoyed this book from cover to cover- and I would recommend to anyone who likes stories with great dramatic twists at the end.
Up Close is such a unique book that it will stay with me for a long time .
Lia Thomson has recently returned to the UK after having moved to the USA where she has a successful career as a doctor. Back in Norfolk, having recently inherited her grandmothers cottaage, where she was brought up, afterthe sudden and rather mysterious death of her Gran. Mysteries from both past and present begin to haunt her, memories of the death of her little brother Eddie return, even though she was only 4 when he died, disturbing nightmares of water and drowning recur and she begins to uncover sinister facets of her Grandmothers life and death.
Having lived here as a child its inevitable that she'll meet some of her former schoolfriends, she becomes reacquaintanced with her former friend Susannah and when she meets Aidan Morrell she finds him very changed from the companion of her youth, years in the army have left him battle scarred and bitter and he seeks solace in his interests of deep sea diving and painting. He's just the complication she doesn't need especially as he is engaged to the rich and successful Brett waiting for her back in the USA.
The whole book has a dark and sinister feel and is much more than just a romantic novel its a tense and quite disturbing thriller which kept me turning the pages well into the night. Highly recomended to anyone who enjoyed Ninepins or Revenge of the Tide
