When Lyddie takes her sister to Devon to recover after a recent suicide attempt, it starts a train of events that will put their lives in grave danger.
Ellie has been the victim of a professional con artist, one who stole her savings, then disappeared from her life. Driven by her own history of failed relationships, Lyddie vows revenge on the man who broke her sister’s heart.
Soon she assumes a false identity and begins her hunt for a man she knows to be cold, calculating and ruthless. But who is fooling whom? And can Lyddie find the justice she seeks and heal her damaged sister?
Before turning her hand to writing, Maggie worked mainly as an accountant, with a diversion into practising as a nutritional therapist. Diet and health remain high on her list of interests, along with travel. Accountancy does not, but then it never did. The urge to pack a bag and go off travelling is always lurking in the background! When not writing, going to the gym, practising yoga or travelling, Maggie can be found seeking new four-legged friends to pet; animals are a lifelong love!
My Review 5/5
OH WOW, THIS BOOK!!! From the opening pages, I could not put this down!! I’ve been a fan of Maggie James’ book, but this one is by far her best.
The story centers around sisters Ellie and Lyddie. When Lyddie returns home to Bristol after Ellie’s third suicide attempt, Lyddie vows to find the man who drove her sister to that low point.
Unfortunately, in today’s online dating world there is a new kind of danger besides just meeting a complete stranger. It’s manipulation and theft. Ellie confides in Lyddie that a man named Steven was able to convince her to give him her whole savings. Lyddie soon joins the online dating world to find “Steven” and pay him back for what he did.
This is a very fast page-turner. The author keeps you guessing who the real victim and perpetrator are until the very end. There are so many twists and turns, going back and forth, it’ll make your head spin and leave chills up and down your spine!!
Terrific book! Very highly recommended!
