On a perfect summer’s day in Paris, tourists on the river watch in shock as a small boy falls into the Seine and disappears below the surface. As his mother stands frozen, a stranger takes a breath and leaps….
I hadn’t read any of Louise Candlish books before, I really enjoyed this one as it was easy to make sense of, I liked the way the book was written as it jumps from future to the past so you can understand the family history. Joanna has a daughter called Holly who has post natal depression after having her son Mikey, Joanna takes them away to Paris and events take a dramatic turn and their paths cross with James and Alexa. This turn then alters their lives for ever.
This book is definitely a page turner and its true what it says on the front cover , I couldn’t put it down wondering what was going to happen next. The trip into Joanna’s past kept me intrigued. I wasn’t expecting the twist that happened near the end either it made me think why hadn’t i ever read a Louise Candlish book before. I will definitely be recommending this book.
