Author Sophie Hannah is a well established author with loads of works under her belt, including continuing the long standing Hercule Poirot Mysteries. She has won numerous awards and I am thrilled to be able to bring this new release to all of you guys!
This one sounds positively diverting and that cover is truly eye catching. It is begging you to read it! This book has been getting rave reviews as well and I can’t wait to crack my copy open to give you guys a more comprehensive review but until then I have this feature for you today!
Be sure to put this one on your TBR list because it sounds like it’s going to be a big thriller for this spring. If you have read it be sure to let me know what you think!
All Beth has to do is drive her son to his Under-14s away match, watch him play, and bring him home.
Just because she knows her ex-best friend lives near the football ground, that doesn’t mean she has to drive past her house and try to catch a glimpse of her. Why would Beth do that, and risk dredging up painful memories? She hasn’t seen Flora for twelve years. She doesn’t want to see her today, or ever again.
But she can’t resist. She parks outside the open gates of Newnham House, watches from across the road as Flora and her children Thomas and Emily step out of the car. Except… There’s something terribly wrong. Flora looks the same, only older. As Beth would have expected. It’s the children. Twelve years ago, Thomas and Emily were five and three years old. Today, they look precisely as they did then.
They are still five and three. They are Thomas and Emily without a doubt – Hilary hears Flora call them by their names – but they haven’t changed at all.
They are no taller, no older… Why haven’t they grown? (summary from Goodreads)
