Twisty, Knowledgeable, Absorbing Story
on 25 April 2016
This is the first time I've tried Isabella Connor, or indeed any novel published by Choc Lit. I was fascinated when I discovered, at the very end, that Isabella Connor is the pen name of a writing partnership - and that the two authors have never met in the flesh. Not that it matters to the story, but whoever said that internet friendships aren't 'real' has certainly missed the point in this case.
The story begins with rich business man Jack Stewart's shock when the wife who deserted him years before is killed in a road accident. That's just the start of this absorbing novel which features two love affairs plus strong links with Ireland and rural England.
The story drew me in, little by little. The writing is tight and the author's knowledge of Ireland, English country life and the traveller culture which is an essential part of the story seemed to me to be faultless.
This was a book that delivered more than it promised, with many twists and turns plus a sweet happy ending.
Recommended for those who like a love story but enjoy a twisty mystery and a well-depicted back story.
