This is the first novel I have read by Ali Knight and i thoroughly enjoyed, ‘Before I Find You’.
The story is told from the viewpoints of Maggie, Helene and Alice. Maggie owns and runs a private investigation business, which specialises in trapping cheating spouses. Helene hires her, as she believes her husband, Gabe, is having an affair after glimpsing him with another woman at a function.
Alice is Gabe’s daughter from a previous marriage but Helene loves her as if she is her own, being unable to have children herself. Alice is working as an intern at her father’s business which Helene attends a couple of days each week.
Maggie and her team pride themselves on being able to find the cheating husband and his mistress within a short period of time but this one is proving more difficult, although they are suspicious that something is going on.
Gabe owns a building business in London and Milo, who is a supporter of Gabe’s company with its social housing policy, becomes involved with Alice. This is where things become confused and complicated.
There are numerous twists and turns and, although I guessed a couple of them, they are all brilliantly developed and portrayed. This is the type of novel where I will go and seek anything else from this author. Amazingly clever.
Many thanks to NetGalley, Hodder & Stoughton and Ali Knight for my ARC in return for my honest review.
Excellent read with a different plot from the norm. Highly recommended.
