Many thanks to Sarah and BOTBS Publicity for my spot on this Blog Tour.

Wow!! A thrilling, galloping read was this with nary a moment to think, filled with different characters and a gripping plotline.

A secret which happened 30 years ago and a message left for main character Charlotte today started this thrill of a book. And as secrets often went, they were revealed. Charlotte and her husband Will had nowhere to hide but to face what was surely coming for them.

My first book by author Paul T League had me running along with the story as the scenes progressed faster, in leaps and bounds. Told in dual timelines of past in 1984 and present times, my kindle was tapped faster than never before. I needed to get to the end to know the truth.

From the cover, I thought it would be a very harsh gritty story, but it wasn’t. It was smooth and flowed well, linking the characters together. I liked the family that Charlotte had with Will. I could understand why both kept their secrets hidden.

A light vein of suspense coursing throughout the book and building up its momentum with an end which would go well with the next book was what made this a rocking read.

On a lighter note

1984 was really momentous for every character in the book. What were you doing in 1984? Or should I ask were you born yet?

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Paul Teague (writing as Paul J. Teague) is the author of the Don’t Tell Meg trilogy as well as several other standalone psychological thrillers such as Burden of Guilt, Dead of Night and One Fatal Error.

A return to the past. Two guilty secrets. A memory that won’t stay buried …

When Charlotte and Will Grayson return to the seaside resort where they met as teenagers, they hope it’ll help to heal the wounds in their marriage.

But visiting the dilapidated holiday camp where their relationship began brings terrible memories back from the past.

The man who’d once made their lives hell has come back to find them – only, the last time they saw him, they’d left him for dead on the beach.

As the threats to their new life become more severe, Charlotte and Will discover that they were mistaken about what happened to Bruce Craven on that fateful night.

And now he’s returned to finish off what was started thirty years ago.

Sometimes the past is best left alone

  1. Loved this review.

    In 1984 I was a newlywed and struggling to make ends meet with a new job, new culture, vile boss, inlaws… oh dear. If I knew then what I know now…
