Fran Hall and her husband Nathan have moved with their two children to a farmhouse on the edge of the Fens – a chance to get away from London and have a fresh start. But when Fran wakes one night to find Nathan gone, she makes a devastating discovery. As questions about her husband and her relationships start to mount, Fran’s life begins to spiral out of control. What is she hiding from the police about her marriage, and does she really know the man she shared her bed with?
2 stars is being generous in my opinion for this book…
The writing style is too drawn out and disjointed! The points of view and time periods jump around far too much and rather than keep me interested at a cliff hanger it pushed me further away.
The plot was ridiculous and the characters annoyed me! I felt no connection at all!
The twists made me roll my eyes and I struggled to pick it back up. I forced myself to finish it in hopes that it would all come together at the end but alas, it led to more disappointment.
