Book Description

Praise for the Number One bestseller Never Say Goodbye and Linda Kavanagh

‘Never Say Goodbye draws the reader into a web of deceit and suspense. It keeps the pages turning right up to the denouement, which comes as an unexpected ... climax. ... If you are a fan of Jodi Picoult, this one's for you'. Irish Independent

‘Dark, gritty and addictive.’ RTE’ Guide

‘ This is a thrilling read - one of those books that will keep you up all night. ... Another winner from Linda Kavanagh.’ Irish Daily Mail

‘Kavanagh fans will recognise her trademark strong characters and intriguing plot, chapters filled with suspense, increasing tension right through to the last page.’ Evening Echo

‘Well worth a read for those looking for something gritty.’ Click Lit Club

‘Still Waters, Linda Kavanagh’s sixth novel, confirms that suspense continues to be her forte. There are no guns here, but the flawed psychological mindsets of her characters do as much damage as a lethal weapon. ... Still Waters is plot-driven, with twists and turns that keep the reader on edge from early on. In a smokescreen effect, the characters inhabit a world of lies and confusion. The narrative alternates between past and present, constantly showing how previous actions lead to current crises.’ Irish Independent

‘A thrilling read’, Ireland on Sunday

‘Uniquely written … An excellent read, a real page- turner and one you will not be able to put down!’. Sunday Life magazine

‘Unputdownable, a real page turner’, The Afternoon Show

‘This book is well worth a read for those who are looking for something gritty’, Chick Lit Club

‘A fierce tale of love, passion and revenge, Love Hurts is the first stunning novel from Poolbeg author Linda Kavanagh’, In Dublin

Four women share a terrible secret. Now someone has found out. And wants revenge.

Thirty years ago, the official verdict was that thirteen-year-old Zoe Gray accidentally drowned. But when her sister Claire inherits the family home, she discovers her sister's secret diary, which tells a very different story. Claire discovers that four schoolgirls in Zoe's class were guilty of appalling acts of bullying that ultimately led Zoe to take her own life. She vows to avenge her sister by finding and punishing the women responsible.
The four schoolgirls are now in their early forties, and all are leading wealthy and privileged lives, where golf and shopping enable them to keep their demons at bay. The tragedy of Zoe's death has defined their own lives, and kept them close to each other, united in guilt that is never spoken about. But suddenly, out of the blue, someone is threatening to strip away the safe veneer of respectability they've built around themselves. They all have so much to lose. Yet as the story unfolds, even more astonishing are the secrets they've never shared with each other . . .
As Claire starts out on her journey of revenge, she finds herself in a world where nothing is quite what it seems. Will she succeed in avenging Zoe? Are there further secrets to be uncovered? And who really killed Zoe Gray?

Linda Kavanagh is a former journalist. She has worked for various newspapers and magazines, and as a travel and health columnist, she has travelled extensively. She lives in Dublin, but commutes regularly to the UK and the USA. She is the author of the top-five bestselling novels Still Waters, The Secret Wife, Hush Hush, Love Child, Love Hurts, Time After Time, and the Number One bestseller Never Say Goodbye.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shallow February 8, 2013
By Karen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Characters lacked depth and personalities changed throughout the course of the book. While the story line was okay, it just never rang true and had people behaving in an unbelievable way to almost every situation.

This is a sad story. All the wasted years hiding secrets and worrying about what would happen could have been avoided. It
Is also a good read and a page turner once you get into it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Justice is not all it seems August 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is about a surviving, younger sister, Claire, who lost her older sister, Zoë when she was only 9 or 10. Her memories of Zoë are of somebody she loved more than life. When Claire inherits her mother's home she finds a diary written by Zoë and understand there was more to her sisters death than she's ever known. She follows an impulse to revenge Zoë as she finds the sister was bullied by four other girls... Now this revenge is directed at the bullies, who she finds, and she intervene in their life causing havoc and catastrophe. The whole of it is not as simple as Claire thought at first cause Zoë's death also had another aspect to it. The subject Linda Kavanagh is broaching is not a simple one but the part of the revenge was all a bit far fetched, though it doesn't make the book less interesting to read.

It's just another story with a twist - although I did finish it in one day so it must have been ok. Usually I put a book aside if it does not interest me.
