Many thanks to publisher Bookouture for my spot on this Blog Tour.

What. A. Book.

Author Emma Davies decided to careen a little away from her normal contemporaries to give me a cracker of a story. This was such a perfect read during these tough times. The story kept me glued all through from beginning to end. Even when I had to do my chores, the book lured me to it like a siren. You naughty thing!!

Thea and Drew had the perfect marriage and kids and when her family home in the village was put for sale, they quickly decided to snap it up to begin a new life in the same village where they spent their childhood. But the others mum’s started giving Thea nasty glances and shushed up when she passed by. Something nasty was broiling, and everything broke in Thea when she came to know the truth. She had to make some tough choices.

A delightful book filled to the brim with suspense and emotions and gossip and small village secrets. The author was simply brilliant in this book. I loved how she etched her main character with such a loving hand, breaking her when she heard the husband’s lie, making her stumble, then giving her the strength to face the truth. Thea was a force to reckon with in the scenes where she stood up for herself. And everything in me bowed down to the power of the emotions that the author seeped her words in. I loved it.

The book had the gossipy mums and judgmental people, but it also had the power of friendships and strong relationships which were the crux of the story. The author how to bind me completely into the story, drawing my attention to the characters and their lives, making me feel their emotions and cheering them on. This was completely an immersive read for me where I had to know how the book ended.

Addictive and captivating.

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

All my reviews can be read here

When I stumbled across the listing for Pevensey House I knew I had found a way for my family to be free and I didn’t hesitate. I should have, I know that now…

When Thea sees her old family home is up for sale – a beautiful old rectory in the small town where she and her childhood sweetheart, now husband, Drew, grew up – she knows she has to have it. Her parents moved her away suddenly when she was eleven, but her childhood there was filled with happy memories. Drew seems less sure, but Thea is certain it’s the perfect place to raise their two children.

But as the last boxes are unpacked, Thea can’t seem to settle. She thought the move would bring her family closer together, but Drew is growing more distant. And why do old friends cross to the other side of the road when they see her coming?

Alone in the house, exploring the creaky corridors she used to cartwheel down as a young girl, Thea smiles as she slides open the loose panel she once used as a hiding place. But it only takes one look at the faded local newspaper clipping hidden inside for the bonds holding her perfect family together to break.

It’s not long before news of the scandal spreads further and the whole town turns against her. Thea’s life is in freefall as her head and her heart wrestle between taking the blame, and fighting for her innocence. In a small town where no one ever forgets the past, can Thea find a way to save her family’s future?
