Four months ago, Rebecca Pendle’s husband disappeared. So did 14-year-old Kayleigh Jackson.
Just a coincidence? Rebecca wants to believe so… But as the police start to draw parallels between Chris and Kayleigh, it’s getting harder for her to trust his innocence.
Faced with an angry town that believes Chris has abducted the teenager, Rebecca tries to discover the truth.
But what she finds shocks her more than she ever thought. How well does she really know the man she loves?
I absolutely loved the concept of this book and couldn’t wait to dive in! I thought the story was a real slow burner and consisted of Rebecca moping around, drinking in her caravan and isolating herself from those who cared and wanted to help her. I really pitied Rebecca, the treatment and abuse she received from something her husband was being accused of was dreadful, I wouldn’t wish that on anybody! It was a shame how she had so much faith in Chris not to have done anything and after hearing what everybody was saying about him, she even started to question and doubt him herself.
The mystery of what had happened to Chris and Kayleigh and whether their disappearances were connected really compelled me to continue reading this book! I truly didn’t know what to believe the whole time reading, I was so suspicious of the school girls and the men from the takeaway but the biggest for me was, of course, Chris!
It’s amazing to see how vile and calculating young school girls can be and how their mistreating of a fully grown adult didn’t faze them at all. I really loved how this book was written however I think for a few chapters to have been in the perspective of other characters would have been rather interesting, especially Chris!! Because I wanted to know what was going on with him soooo badly – where the hell was he and what had he done?!
