My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Jane hasn’t lived anywhere for longer than six months since her son was born five years ago. She keeps moving in an attempt to escape her past. Now the idyllic coastal town of Pirriwee has pulled her to its shores and Jane feels as if she finally belongs. She finds friends in the feisty Madeline and the incredibly beautiful Celeste, two women with seemingly perfect lives – and their own secrets.
Okay I confess I succumbed to the hype surrounding this novel and the subsequent tv system. I didn’t watch the tv version, instead wanted to read the book ‘cold’ as it were. And what a book! The style of writing draws you in. I loved the little vignettes from those people at the scene of the murder. I loved the hidden problems in the three women’s lives. I loved not knowing who had been killed and who the murderer was. In fact, you guessed it, I loved the whole thing! A great novel that I hated having to put down, when life got in the way of my reading!
