I’ve skipped on the last couple of Nicci French thrillers (for now at least) because I was finding them to be all a bit samey in some respects, the amount of twists at the end mostly I think. But I saw this book written by one half of Nicci French and thought that I’d like to see what it was like. I’m glad I did, it’s a very readable bit of general fiction. A story in two parts about Edie and her family, the first half is set in 1980 when Edie is 17 and the rest is in the present day, it’s populated with believable characters and I enjoyed it a lot. Light reading but definitely not fluffy.
