Many thanks to NetGalley, Random House UK, Cornerstone and Heidi Perks for this ARC in return for my honest review.
This is the second novel I have read by this author and it was another excellent read.
The story is told from two viewpoints; one is t from the 1990s on a secluded Island, Evergreen, with a few inhabitants where everybody knows everybody else’s business, and the present day. Stella, the central character tries to piece together what happened when a body is dug up on Evergreen on the border of the garden of the house her and her parents, brother and sister used to live.
Her determination to undercover the facts lead her to find out family history, which she does not want to hear or tell her sister. As the plot deepens, twists and turns she discovers that she is not welcome back on the Island. People who she thought were her friends turn against her.
Excellently written with an unusual storyline which kept me enthralled all of the way through until the end.
Great read, highly recommended.
