Hannah Richards is a successful British film director. She is madly in love with her partner, script writer, Naomi Roberts and her life couldn’t be better. Then without warning, tragedy struck when Naomi suddenly died, leaving a gaping hole in Hannah’s life. Devastated, Hannah departs for Cumbria, anything to get away from their house and it’s memories. Hannah stays away for a year before she can even contemplate returning. Even when her decision to return to London is made, she still can’t really face it.
Famous actress, Alisa Forbes, Hannah and Naomi’s one time best friend is the one to help Hannah get her life back on track.
Leah, Hannah’s personal assistant has an agenda of her own, and having Hannah and Alisa take up as best friends again isn’t on it.
The more of Jade Winters books I read, the more I want to read. They are simply addictive. This book is a well written, page turner. I was totally hooked from the very first page, right through to the last page. There are so many twists and turns and ups and downs, it was like being on a rollercoaster.
The two main characters, Hannah and Alisa used to be best friends along with Hannah’s deceased partner, Naomi. Something happened to change all that before Naomi died. So, how did Alisa end up being the person to help Hannah get her life back again?
There is a wonderful cast of secondary characters. The most interesting one being Leah. She is the one I wanted to slap and yell at the most. But, what part did she play in the unfolding saga of Hannah, Naomi and Alisa?
Hannah’s mother Maggie, plays a good part in her support of Hannah. But again, I felt like she needed a bit of a slap. As did Hannah on a few occasions.
This is not to say these characters are anything less than great. It shows that Jade’s writing is top notch. These characters are all well developed and interact so well together. They are a delight to get to know.
This story is definitely one of Jade’s best. Somehow though, I get the feeling I’m going to be saying that about each new book of Jade’s I read. I will definitely read this book again. It’s nice to know the ending sometimes without any pressure.
