Jane Corry is a new author to me. I am most grateful to the publisher for being given the opportunity to participate in this blog tour.
Two women are staying in Willowmead House.
One of them is running.
One of them is hiding.
Both of them are lying.
Emily made one bad decision, and now her career could be over. Her family home on the Cornish coast is the only place where she feels safe. But when she arrives, there’s a stranger living with her father. Emily doesn’t trust the beautiful young woman, convinced that she’s telling one lie after another.
Soon, Emily becomes obsessed with finding out the truth. But should some secrets stay buried forever?
The book opens with Emily delivering a baby. All appears to be fine, but in the end it clearly isn’t. She ends up dodging a fox on her bike and falling off, hitting her head. The hospital where she works then give her a call to get her to return to work due to something that went wrong with the latest birth. It isn’t revealed exactly what has gone wrong.
But she panics, doesn’t contact the hospital and flees to the Cornish coast where she grew up and her elderly father. Thinking that she can confide in him and they can look after one another.
However he has employed a carer, Francoise. It becomes clear that Emily doesn’t trust her and she doesn’t trust Emily.
There are many secrets that everyone is keeping.
As they are revealed a really interesting story evolves that had me gripped.
