Description

It read a bit like an autobiography at times but I liked getting to know the character and their background more. Freda keeps asking Joely what she thinks of the young her, inviting her to join in a sick kind of slut shaming. Following periods of living in Los Angeles and the South of France, she currently lives in Gloucestershire with her husband James, stepsons Michael and Luke, and mischievous dogs Coco and Lulu. She is also the author of Just One More Day and One Day at a Time, the moving memoirs of her childhood in Bristol during the 1960s.

Great characters, a heartbroken Joely on a train ride to a virtually unknown ghostwriting assignment. A compelling, timely mystery’ bestselling author, Lisa Ballantyne ‘You’ll be surprised and captivated right to the end!

Joely is sure she can uncover the truth but as the story unravels, she is spun deeper and deeper into a world of secret and lies. The ending felt way to forced and implausible to justify the quite unpleasant and unnecessary 'relationship' from 1968.

I also felt increasingly uncomfortable with how the relationship between a 15 year old student and her 25 year old teacher was handled by the end.I recently read a novel about a schoolgirl and teacher having a sexual relationship which I found to be a really well-written novel so while I was keen to read this particular book I tried to leave some space between so I didn't compare. And considering what the basis of this story is about, I would have thought she would have been reigned in a little more. I didn't like the end, I can't explain why because of spoilers but I was not keen on the way it ended. Ok I thought this is a gothic suspense which could be fun, I go with it even though I thought it was odd Joely was leaving Holly at a time when she'd surely be devastated at her parent's separation (well she should be but Holly seems to be taking it all strangely in stride).
