Wow this book was evil and delicious. I couldn’t even believe the twists it had. Human psyche with its obsessions was explored in a wicked way. Nina Manning in her debut, had written a book which is too hot to handle.

2 women and a man in the middle was probably an equation every woman knew in her married life. Mother-in-Law Annie loved her son Ben a lot. Nobody was good enough for him, and certainly not his wife Daisy who was the odd woman out. Soon Ben left for a 3 month job in the music industry, Daisy’s best friend died, her house burned down, and she had to come to stay with the dreaded and oh so weird mother-in-law.

Ms Manning’s writing pulled me in. I read the book with a sense of growing horror, knowing trouble was soon brewing. This beach house with a fabulous view had been festering secrets. Manipulations and lies were the trademarks. Each character had a mask on. I rushed through the book to get to the real face beneath it.

My niggle too found its place. I knew where the story was heading. BUT, hold on!! I never saw THE LAST TWIST COMING. Whoosh!! My breath escaped in a sigh, and I couldn’t believe what I was reading.

Didn’t I say it was delicious? A teaser of a read became a complete book. One of my weekend midnight reads. Wow.

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

As a single mother, Annie has an especially close relationship with her son, Ben. They have always been together. Just the two of them. So, when Ben brings home his mysterious beautiful new wife, Daisy, immediately Annie doesn’t trust her. Who is this woman who has taken her son away from her? And what is she hiding?
She’ll protect him with her life…
When Ben disappears, suddenly Annie and Daisy are all the other one has. Alone in Annie’s big, remote house, just the two of them, the tension is rising. And like any protective mother, Annie will stop at nothing to expose her new daughter in law, and the secrets she is hiding…

    1. I leave you breathless? With love? Are you in love? 😂😂😂😂😂😂 Sorry I have to be silly… Just had a bad day. Now okay

      1. You can be silly all you want 😂😂 I’m sorry to hear you had a bad day 😔 I had a bit of bad week last week, but healthwise and mentally. Which is why I have been a bit out of touch. Doing better again though, no worries 😘 Hopefully things will continue to improve for you as well❤️😊
