The brilliant new novel from Jenny Blackhurst, the #1 eBook bestselling author of HOW I LOST YOU, which Clare Mackintosh called 'utterly gripping' and BEFORE I LET YOU IN. If you love Louise Jensen's THE GIFT or SK Tremayne's THE ICE TWINS you will love this.
When child psychologist Imogen Reid takes on the case of 11-year-old Ellie Atkinson, she refuses to listen to warnings that the girl is dangerous.
Ellie was the only survivor of a fire that killed her family. Imogen is convinced she's just a sad and angry child struggling to cope with her loss.
But Ellie's foster parents and teachers are starting to fear her. When she gets upset, bad things seem to happen. And as Imogen gets closer to Ellie, she may be putting herself in danger...
Imogen is returning home to her hometown after the death of her mother. Gaunt isn't a town where she couldn't wait to get away from. Yet here she is returning after the death of her mother to start over again with her husband.
It will certainly keep you thinking, and all along I was waiting for the twist, which yes comes right towards the end.
Very well written and an enjoyable read, I just had a little bug bear with one of the characters. I don't think this took to much away from the book for me though.
If an author can get your emotions going with your feelings towards characters, and grab you in with a story line you want to continue reading, then it's job well done. That is certainly what Jenny Blackhurst has done here.
