Arriving on the windswept Ile de Re off the coast of France, Tabby Dewhurst is heartbroken and penniless, unable to even afford a room for the night. Then she overhears a villager repeating aloud the access code to her front door and, hardly believing her own actions, Tabby waits for her to leave and lets herself into the house….
And so she enters the strange, hidden world of a woman called Emmie, whose sudden offer of friendship is at odds with her obsession with her own privacy. Soon Tabby begins to form suspicions about Emmie, suspicions that will lead her back to England – and to a scandal with shattering consequences.
My first ever review was for a Louise Candlish book called ‘The Day You Saved My Life’, which I was given by a lovely book blogger friend. I thoroughly enjoyed that book but this book was riveting. Such a compelling story with twists and turns you would never expect. This book has emotional highs and lows and the relevant issues are dealt with very well. However I would say that the ending left me wanting more. I don’t feel it was left how it should be. I loved the fact it was set in France and that the cover is stunning. A perfect beach read! Will be purchasing more of her books.
