About the Book:
Her sister’s boyfriend. Her worst nightmare. On the night of her mother’s wake, Ewan kisses a shocked Ruby. They both agree to pretend that the kiss never happened – in fact, according to Ewan, no one even needs to know he walked Ruby home. Because Ewan is seeing Ruby’s sister, Sophie. He’s been wonderful to Sophie, comforting her after her mother’s murder and taking care of her little kids, too. In short, he’s been the perfect boyfriend. This was just a stupid mistake. But when Ruby learns of another woman's murder close to Ewan’s route home on the night of the kiss, she fears that her lie has left her sister in terrible danger. After all, how well do the sisters really know Ewan? How well do they know each other? And are they sure they know the truth about what really happened on the day their mother died?
This book was a first glimpse into this author's work and it was okay. It was a bit of a slow burn and when one of the main characters seemed to show his true colours it started to get interesting. I didn't see the ending coming, but it lacked any feeling of satisfaction - it felt more like the author had drawn the name out of a hat and then made it fit. That's easy for me to say- I'm no author, but I am an avid reader of all genres...this just left me with a slightly disappointed feeling - that said, if I hadn't got in to the story or been interested in the characters I wouldn't have wanted a more satisfying end for them so the author has definitely got something right and if you're intrigued by the book I wouldn't talk you out of giving it a go.
