The Bones of You is a gripping psychological thriller from author Debbie Howells; a story of full of dark secrets, obsession and suspense.
I have a gardener’s inherent belief in the natural order of things. Soft-petalled flowers that go to seed. The resolute passage of the seasons. Swallows that fly thousands of miles to follow the eternal summer.
Children who don’t die before their parents.
A community in shock
When eighteen-year-old Rosie Anderson disappears, the idyllic village where she lived will never be the same again. Local gardener Kate is struck with guilt. She’d come to know Rosie well, and thought she understood her – perhaps better even than Rosie’s own mother.
A family torn apart
Rosie was beautiful, kind and gentle. She came from a loving family and she had her whole life ahead of her. Who could possibly want to harm her? And why?
A keeper of secrets
Kate is convinced the police are missing something. She’s certain that someone in the village knows more than they’re letting on. As the investigation deepens, so does Kate’s obsession with solving the mystery of what happened to Rosie.
This is a book I liked the look of from Richard and Judy’s book club reads. I am really into my psychological thrillers at the moment so this was a must to read. This book is Debbie Howells first novel too and I loved it, I was so into it from the first chapter I couldn’t put it down. I loved the storyline, it felt creepy and I honestly thought I knew what had happened but as the story went on, I wasn’t sure if I had got it right and I hadn’t. Lots of twists and turns make this a must read of this year. A book I will be recommending to friends and family and one that I wont forget. I can’t wait for Debbie’s next book now.
