In a dark, dark wood
Nora hasn’t seen Clare for ten years. Not since Nora walked out of school one day and never went back.
There was a dark, dark house
Until, out of the blue, an invitation to Clare’s hen do arrives. Is this a chance for Nora to finally put her past behind her?
And in the dark, dark house there was a dark, dark room
But something goes wrong. Very wrong.
And in the dark, dark room….
Some things can’t stay secret for ever.
Although this book starts very slowly and quite repetitive, and even though I could predict many of the events that would happen from very early in the story, this book managed to do something that other books have failed to do: it made me keep turning the pages non-stop until the wee hours of the night.
Once all the protagonists are together, the pace of the narration picks up and it becomes a really fast read. The author keeps giving us hints in order to take us to the final outcome and revelation. Or does she? I won’t tell. This is a spoilers-free zone.
Overall, it is a really entertaining book for the weekend.
For all of that, I give this book… 4 TEA CUPS!
