This is the true story of when Carolyn Woods met Mark Acklom, originally known to her as Mark Conway.
She was living in a quiet Cotswold village, renting a beautiful cottage and looking to buy her own with a substantial amount of money from the sale of her previous house. This money was sitting in the bank and, in the meantime, she had found a job in a small, local boutique.
One fateful day Mark walks into the shop and her life changes beyond recognition in a short space of time. She was conned out of her money.
I have to admit about being sceptical when I began this but I devoured it in two days as it was compulsive reading. Of course, I would say that I would never let this happen to me but he managed to con a fair few people out of substantial sums of money. There but for the grace of god…
Many thanks to NetGalley, HarperCollins UK and Carolyn Woods for the opportunity to read and give an honest review.
Excellent read and highly recommended. I hope this is a number one best seller and film.
