Disclaimer opening line: Catherine braces herself, but there is nothing left to come up.

My blurb:

Catherine opens the book, starts reading, and realizes, she is the main character. It seems Stephen Brigstocke is out for revenge for the death of his son. But he fails to see the truth until is is nearly too late. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, is not purely coincidental.


Imagine if the next thriller you opened was all about you. ‘An addictive novel with shades of Gone Girl’ Sunday Times When an intriguing novel appears on Catherine’s bedside table, she curls up and begins to read. But as she turns the pages she is horrified to realize she is a key character, a main player. This story will reveal her darkest secret. A secret she thought no one else knew…

My verdict:

I must say that I did not enjoy the book at first. But as I had nothing else to read, I stuck to it. And I am really glad that I did. The truth was surprising and towards the end of the book, I was loathe to put it down.

I am passionate about using regional, seasonable and sustainable produce when I cook. I live in Gordons Bay with my husband and dogs. Dave and I are busy building a house which is an adventure all in itself. Each year we visit a new place overseas to experience the food of the area. Follow along on our adventures!
