Written by Leigh Russell
Happily married to the charismatic headmaster of a prestigious boarding school, Louise thinks her life is perfect.
But after hearing that her husband is having an affair, Louise must decide how far she is prepared to go to save her marriage. Confident in her IT skills, Louise cyber bullies her rival.
When the police then become involved, Louise realises she has made a dangerous choice as first one woman, then another, is found murdered.
Realising she has taken on more than she intended, Louise has to make another choice, and this one could cost her not only her marriage, but also her life . . .
Fabulous Writing and a Beautifully Constructed Tale!
A very engaging read, with an original concept, this is a novel I enjoyed very much indeed.
Louise and her husband have worked together over the years to get his career advanced to where he wants it to be – as Head of a public school. By mutual understanding, Louise has ceased teaching in order to support Nick in this new endeavour. All is going well until someone interferes in their life together and give Louise a reason to suspect her husband’s fidelity . . .
This is a book which got under my skin very quickly and I found myself racing through the pages. It’s fair to say that I wasn’t sure at any given time who to believe or who to suspect, and this continued until the very end. What a read! An entirely believable situation, I found myself wondering what I would do in Louise’s position and, frankly, I’m still not sure but I do know that this story gripped me from first to last and I couldn’t wait to find out how it all ended up; then I was gobsmacked! Fabulous writing, a beautifully constructed tale and an awesome read all add up to a bright and sparkling 5* novel, and one I’m very happy to recommend. If you haven’t read this author previously, then this is an ideal novel to begin with!
