What if you had to return to the place that made you fall apart?
When Lindsay Ellis was a teenager she witnessed the aftermath of a violent murder involving her lover’s father. The killer was never found.
Traumatised by what she saw, Lindsay had no choice but to leave her home village of Hartley Cross and its close-knit community behind.
Now, years later, she must face up to the terrible memories that still haunt her. But will confronting the past finally allow Lindsay to heal, or will her return to Hartley Cross unearth dangerous secrets and put the people she has come to care about most at risk?
An absorbing read
The author brings her characters to life with her clever dialog, it's written in such a descriptive way that she paints pictures with words.
I enjoyed this book so much that I didn't want it to end. It was only the last but one chapter when I had my 'aha' moment of identifying the murderer, the mystery was well hidden – at least from me - until almost the end. A thoroughly engrossing read.
