He Started It – Samantha Downing


Having read her first novel, ‘My Lovely Wife’, I felt that this couldn’t be as good, but it is.  Another storming read from this author.

The story is about three siblings who do not get on – no real surprise there.  When their grandfather dies, he leaves the huge amount of money to be shared between the three of them providing they repeat a road trip he took them on when they were children.  There are certain criteria they must follow.

Eddie, Beth and Portia are the three siblings but Eddie’s wife and Beth’s husband are along for the ride as well.  The narrator is Beth and there are tensions between everybody at different stages along with an underlying humour at certain points.

As the journey progresses the reader is taken around so many twists, turns and unknowns.  The final chapter is a stunner.

Thank you to NetGalley, Penguin UK, Michael Joseph, and Samantha Downing for my ARC in return for my honest review.

Another brilliant read.  Highly recommended.
