As a thrilling story, I liked it. A woman on her anniversary received the most awful gift from her infidel husband.
Then six months later, when divorce proceedings were in, she started receiving horrible messages and gifts. The domestic drama had turned dark.
Having read all of author Sue Watson’s thrillers, I was quite excited to read this. The beginning was slower than her earlier books, but it soon found its pace. Many things happened that went on to becomes twists in the plot, all adding up to the characterization.
I liked how the author managed to cast my suspicions on the new characters outside the immediate family. Many a trail was written in, some like bread cribs, others were blind alleys.
A couple of things came to my mind. Having read many thrillers, it was easy to guess the perp at the end. And some medical facts didn’t gel with me. Head injuries reveal a lot to a forensic examiner.
Overall, it was a solid thriller which kept me hooked and going strong till the end.

You thought you’d always be safe there… you were wrong.
Carly had thought they’d always live there. The beautiful Cornish cliffside house they’d taken on as a wreck, that Mark had obsessively re-designed and renovated – a project that had made him famous. It was where they’d raised their children, where they’d sat cosily on the sofa watching storms raging over the sea below. It was where they’d promised to keep each other’s secrets…
Until now. Because Mark has fallen in love. With someone he definitely shouldn’t have. Someone who isn’t Carly. And suddenly their family home doesn’t feel like so much of a safe haven.
Carly thinks forever should mean forever though: it’s her home and she’ll stay there. Even the dark family secrets it contains feel like they belong to her. But someone disagrees. And, as threats start to arrive at her front door, it becomes clear, someone will stop at nothing. Because someone wants to demolish every last thing that makes Carly feel safe. Forever.
