Annie has a secret. But if she’s not going to tell, we won’t either. It’s a heart-breaking secret she wishes she didn’t have – yet Annie isn’t broken, not quite yet. Especially now there’s someone out there who seems determined to fix her.
Kate has run away. But she’s not going to tell us why – that would defeat the point of running, wouldn’t it? It’s proving difficult to reinvent herself, however, with one person always on her mind.
Scratch beneath the surface and nobody is really who they seem. Even Annie and Kate, two old friends, aren’t entirely sure who they are any more. Perhaps you can work it out, before their pasts catch up with them for good . . .
A gripping and unpredictable story of two young women running from their pasts. We defy you to guess the twist . . .
A huge thank you to Francesca at Penguin for sending me a copy to review!
Lucy Robinson has created a story that is mind blowing and wonderfully orchestrated to the point where all you can say is GENIUS!
It is obvious when starting the story that both of our main protagonists, Annie and Kate are hiding from their pasts, but why? (Like I would tell you)
You need to read and devour every page of this story, to experience every twist and turn and to share the same astonished expression as everyone else who has read it.
Annie seems quite a vulnerable character. She is haunted by her past and scared of allowing people in. But the truth is, Annie is probably one of the strongest characters because she didn’t give up, she faced life head on.
Kate on the other hand, is a feisty hard worker fighting not to let anyone in, there’s a vulnerability about Kate that she’s not prepared to share.
What’s incredible about this book is the friendships, each girl had a group of friends who are supportive and loving, people who are looking out for each other 24/7 and it is these people that provide some of the witty and light hearted moments.
Like Claudie from Le Cloob, the fearsome French friend, who will demand the most outrageous terms for their meetings.
Speaking of witty characters, I absolutely adored Ana Luisa, she made me laugh out loud on many occasions.
Let’s be honest, Robinson has given the reader everything; friendship, romance, a truly gripping twist and HOTTIES.
If I had been Kate on that farm, there would’ve been many a fanny gallop,
There’s the cocky Irishman Joe, who is funny, friendly and extremely persuasive and then there’s Mark. Oh how I love him!
Workaholic Mark who loves his daughter and horses with such intensity. This man is amazing, if I could’ve pulled him from the pages, I would’ve!
I’m a huge fan of Lucy Robinson and have loved all her previous books but there is no doubt in my mind, this is her BEST BOOK YET!
