Elodie was beautiful. Elodie was smart. Elodie was troubled. Elodie is dead.
Sylvie hasn’t been back to her crumbling French family home in years. Not since the death of her eldest daughter Elodie.
Every corner of the old house feels haunted by memories of her – memories she has tried to forget.
But as temperatures rise, and forest fires rage through the French countryside, a long-buried family secret is about to come to light.
Because there’s something Sylvie’s been hiding about what really happened to Elodie that summer.
And it could change everything.
I was looking forward to delving into this story, the blurb promised to be a really good psychological thriller, however it seemed to be quite slow going for the first half of the book, it is set in France in the middle of a heatwave, I read this when we had out heatwave here in England so could almost imagine I was there. There is a uncovered mystery and secrets are hidden but will they be revealed? It is quite a dark and tense read.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
