I don’t know where you are…
I don’t know what I’ve done…
Teenager Abigail Ryder is devastated when she gets home from school to find her family gone. Nothing makes sense. Things are missing from the house and her stepsisters’ room is completely empty. But the police think she’s trouble, and when grandmother Eleanor tells her to forget them all and move on, there’s no choice other than face the future – alone.
Fourteen years on, Abi and Adam are a happy couple on the verge of parenthood. But when the past comes back to haunt Abi, the only way forward is to go back and uncover the truth – and reveal the dreadful secrets a mother has been hiding all these years.
What did I think?
Sometimes you find that rare book that has you hooked from the very first page – ‘Beneath the Surface’ does exactly that. It lures you in and just doesn’t let you go. Perks really has an ability to get you on board from the very first chapter which is something of a rare occurrence
The storyline is intense and never ending (in a good way!). The amount of twists and turns that Perks has managed to incorporate in to this story is incredible and I really am so impressed with her imagination!
In a way ‘Beneath the Surface’ is quite haunting – by this I mean that Perks has really gone to the extremes with the trials and tribulations of family life. The skeletons in this families closet is shocking and Perks really keeps you wanting more from them. Overall, the story is believable and never do you think that the situations are too far-fetched.
I really loved this book and Heidi Perks has definitely gained a future reader with me. ‘Beneath the Surface’ is her first novel and is a book that I will be recommending for a long time to come!
My Rating? ♥♥♥♥♥
