I have read most of the novels by Adele Parks and love them. This is no exception and I think this is up there as one of her best. I couldn’t put it down.
Leigh Fletcher is married to Mark and loves him and her two stepsons, who lost their biological mother to cancer. She appears to work hard for a management consultancy firm, as Mark runs a landscape gardening company, trying to ensure everyone is happy. She faces difficulties with the oldest son who is at the age where he is rebelling. When she doesn’t return from a work as expected Mark is sure something bad has happened. Fiona, Leigh’s best friend, helps out with the family and tries to help them through the crisis.
Kai Jannsen, married to Daan, lives with him in a luxury apartment and seems to have it all. She doesn’t need to work, and they live an affluent lifestyle. When Kai doesn’t return from visiting her mother in Newcastle Daan becomes concerned.
Both husbands report their wives missing to the police and DC Clements begins to investigate the disappearances as they are only a few days apart. Her boss tells her she is wasting her time.
Great plotting and clever characterisations throughout with a few bombshells which had been astute crafted.
Many thanks to NetGalley, HQ General Fiction (Adult), Mystery & Thrillers and Adele Parks for my Arc of Both of You in return for my honest review.
Excellent read and highly recommended
