Florence Darrow wants to be a writer. Correction: Florence Darrow IS going to be a writer. Fired from her first job in publishing, she jumps at the chance to be assistant to the celebrated Maud Dixon, the anonymous bestselling novelist. The arrangement comes with conditions – high secrecy, living in an isolated house in the countryside. Before long, the two of them are on a research trip to Morocco, to inspire the much-promised second novel. Beach walks, red sunsets and long, whisky-filled evening discussions…win-win, surely? Until Florence wakes up in a hospital, having narrowly survived a car crash.
How did it happen – and where is Maud Dixon, who was in the car with her? Florence feels she may have been played, but wait, if Maud is no longer around, maybe Florence can make her mark as a writer after all…
Oh this is so good. If you like twisty thrillers that keep you on the edge this is the book for you. It is about Florence who gets fired from her job in a publishing house, a jb offer comes her way to be an assistant to an anonymous author. Florence jumps at the chance, even with specific conditions she doesn’t hesitate. On a research trip to Morocco, things are not all they seem, and when Florence wakes up in hospital not knowing how she got there, reality hits hard, where is the author and can Florence get what she has always wanted to become an author. The characters are described well and can be relatable. It is a fast paced read with twists and turns, I could see this becoming a film.
