When 35-year-old Leni McKenzie is knocked off her bike, her family’s world is turned upside down.
Leni and her sister Alice were best friends as well as siblings. But did they know each other as well as Alice thought? In the hope of coming to terms with her grief, she tries to piece together Leni’s last weeks – but her discoveries only lead to more questions. And that’s before the surprise reappearance of someone from the past. Life is certainly getting very complicated …
Meanwhile, the rest of the family seem to be falling apart. Belinda, Alice’s mum, has developed an unhealthy obsession with a clairvoyant, and Tony, her dad, is stressed about becoming a father all over again, what with three failed marriages stacking up behind him.
As for Will, the youngest McKenzie, he’s in denial, having hopped onto a plane to Thailand days after the funeral. Secretly, he’s tormented by the part he played in Leni’s death … and the thing about secrets is, they always come out eventually …
I really love reading Lucy’s books, they are always real life situations and pure escapism which I love. I genuinely felt as though I was placed in the middle of the situation and felt as though I wanted to help the family come to terms with what happened. It can be relatable to some people and I hope it helps those people. I loved the way Lucy writes with such warmth and sympathy, and she also adds in a little humour that is such a comfort when you are reading a story like this. You won’t want to put this book down. It was beautiful.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
