Mind-boggling Twists and Turns!  5startr

Having just finished this book, I find myself both agreeing and disagreeing with the synopsis – it really doesn’t do this mind-boggling read justice. Twists and turns galore, each drawing the reader deeper and more uncertain about how this whole story is going to play out. The one thing which I find staring me in the face is that this would make an exciting and very thrilling on-screen drama.

Tara and David are what most would refer to as ‘nouveau-riche’. Both from working class backgrounds, it is a combination of both their talents which has resulted in them renovating and rebuilding a house to become the home of their dreams. Just as the are reaching the final few finishes, their world begins to crumble – and boy, does it crumble!

I don’t ‘do’ spoilers, but it strikes me that this novel will appeal to those who read psychological and crime thrillers alongside lovers of police procedurals and yes, even domestic family sagas. Full of surprises and revelations and there is no way I could have guessed the ending – but, having read it, find it finishes off the story beautifully.

S. D. Monaghan is definitely an author firmly on my radar and I’m looking forward to the next release already.

I received an arc via NetGalley in exchange for my original, honest and unbiased review.
