This one starts with a bang!
The opening chapter was one of the most intriguing I’ve read in a very long time. I was instantly curious and wanted to know what happened ( an event in the end of the story is revealed in the beginning chapter). Let’s just say I was hooked!
I listened to this one on Audible and the narrator (who happens to be the author Catherine Steadman ) was perfection. The timeline shifts back to tell the story of Erin and Mark, who are newlyweds, passionately in love and planning a trip in the sun to Bora, Bora. Sunbathing, scuba diving, champagne drinking. What could possibly go wrong? Well, turns out plenty.
I loved the unreliable characters, the twisty edge of your seat plot, and rather frantic pace.
Thank you for recommending this one Berit!
