About the Book:
Annie lives a quiet, contained, content life. She goes to work. She meets her friend. She’s kind of in a relationship. She’s happy. Not lonely at all. If only more people could see how friendly she is — how eager to help and please. Then she could tick “Full Happy Life” off her list. But no one sees that side of Annie and she can’t understand why. That all changes the night Chloe Hills disappears. And Annie is the last person to see her. This is her chance to prove to everybody that she’s worth something. That is, until she becomes a suspect.
I love Marianne Holmes' writing, she has a wonderfully poetic and descriptive way of telling a story that makes reading it both gripping and insightful. This book was beautifully written and one I'm glad I chose because of the remarkably sensitive writing style. This was a haunting tale with a mesmerizing, obsessive love story at its heart.
The sorrow from the events will stay with me for a long time I think, showing what flawed characters we humans are. Things could have been so different if only. The author's writing is exquisitely constructed and the story-line is wholly engrossing. I suggest you immerse yourself in this story of possessive love, it will be time well spent. I loved this book as well as A Little Bird Told Me by the same author.
