Laura Swallow is dead.
A life cut tragically short, says the newspaper obituary.
But that’s a lie.
Estate agent Laura did not die in a car accident. She is alive and well.
At first, Laura thinks it’s a sick joke.
But multiple announcements of her death are followed by increasingly sinister real-life events. Already fragile, struggling to recover from a recent divorce, Laura is plunged into a living nightmare.
Who can she trust? Her new lover? Her clients and work colleagues? What about her ex-husband and his smug fiancée? Can Laura even rely on her best friends? And why is it that Laura’s present troubles are so tied up with her sister’s sudden death all those years ago?
But one thing Laura is sure of – someone out there wants her to suffer. Wants her gone.
I read this book in two sittings. I was on a roller coaster ride with Laura. Who to trust, who is behind the horrible things that keep happening to Laura?
I wasn’t sure about Dr. Ben , Laura’s new love interest, was he too perfect or just who he says he is. I mean come on Laura needs a break! Dumped by her husband Ian and really struggling with finances and now someone is posting on Facebook that she is dead. For me all of her friends came under suspicion as the culprit and a few others in her life as well.
I wanted Laura to have something good happen to her but honestly this book kept me guessing the outcome right until the end.
If you like mystery/suspense then this is for you.
