Ok, now that I am done blathering like an idiot about accents I will move on to the actual review. As always this author's writing remains top notch. Be it under her romance name (Lucy Wild) or this new pen name I know I am guaranteed to get a well written story. The pace of this one was fairly good. It did take me a bit to get into it, but once it hit its stride, I found myself unable to set it aside. I wouldn't say there were a lot of twists and turns. We know right from the start who the baddie is, but the author did a good job of keeping things interesting despite that.
There is a touch of romance that as a romance reader I felt could have been fleshed out more. That said this isn't a romance book, so I wasn't too bothered by it either. The characters were plenty, and all of them added extra layers that enhanced the overall plot well. The only thing I didn't love was the ending. I felt it was wrapped up maybe a tad too quickly and easily after all that build up. But even with that issue I still ended up enjoying this one, and it's getting a thumbs up from yours truly.
The author creates an atmosphere of disquiet and uncertainty….. from the very first chapter there is an ominous certainty that Martha’s past has caught up with her ….…The premise is original and it was interesting to be given a window, through the narrative, into the mind of Martha’s nemesis with his twisted obsession…but there is more to this convoluted plot which contains a number of fascinating and damaged characters and more than one potential victim and perpetrator…
This is a skilfully written gripping tale which kept me guessing until the end….this was a 4.5 star suspenseful must read…I was given a copy of this book as an ARC by the author.
There are a many side stories spiraling around the Martha, so you have to pay attention or you might get lost. Timothy is the man that saved her, Peter is her boss and is the man that feels beholden to her, Ben is the man that is falling in love with her and Samuel is the man that wants to sacrifice her. Can any of them save her before it is too late? There are many themes, intrigue, anger, regret, jealously, compassion, revenge. It was interesting to see how the clues were revealed. It was a good story.
Five young girls had been suffering abuse at the hands of The Gamesman at Beeches Care Home for quite some time; the owner, Tim, was totally unware of what was going on until there was a confrontation. As a consequence, The Gamesman sets fire to the care home, trapping the five girls in a room; it is only Tim’s quick thinking that saves the lives of two of the girls, Martha and Lisa. Martha is besides herself with the deaths of her friends, particularly since she had taken most of the brunt of the abuse from The Gamesman in order to protect them. It is automatically assumed that The Gamesman died in the fire too, but this is not clear. Now 10-years later the comet is coming and The Gamesman has an offering to make. Time is running out and he has no idea where to find Martha, but he is adamant Lisa knows, and she will tell him. During all this time Tim has been keeping watch over Martha and Lisa, but the one time Lisa doesn’t keep her promise to ring him, Tim immediately knows something is wrong. Meanwhile, Martha has made a life for herself at Helmsley Castle and is gradually conquering her past fears. When the owner of the Castle, Peter, has a serious car accident, Martha calls his son Ben to inform him, not realising he has had a fall out with his family following the death of his sister, Zoe. With some persuasion, Martha is able to get Ben to make a visit and during their time together they form a bond, until one “out of the blue” comment sends Martha screaming, taking her back to her childhood. With Peter’s ex-wife and Alex trying to get Peter to sell the Castle, Ben is convinced Alex is the one stalking Martha; Alex had always been a bully to Ben when they were younger, so how can it be anyone else. As the time of the comet approaches, The Gamesman is already at Helmsley Castle biding his time, leaving cryptic mementoes for Martha to find. Tim, meanwhile, takes his grand-daughter, Jenny, on a visit to the Castle, taking the opportunity to tell Ben he needs to look out for Martha; Tim not realising that The Gamesman has his sights set on Jenny too. Will The Gamesman succeed in his dastardly plan, or can Martha finally be free of him and have the life she finally deserves? A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.
