A lightning romance and swiftly arranged marriage takes Holly up north to live at the heart of Nathan’s family business – a luxurious log-cabin park on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. She has everything to look forward to, but within days her happiness is marred by a series of unsettling events. It’s obvious that someone doesn’t want her there and she needs to know why.

It all points to Kyle, Nathan’s surrogate brother, a deeply manipulative individual whose complex relationship with her husband is difficult to fathom. Suspicious of his motives and desperate for some answers, Holly starts delving into his past, convinced that it’s there where the key lies. But, things are not so straightforward and she is unprepared for the chilling discovery she makes.

Review new 2021

When Holly meets Nathan she didn’t expect to fall in love and begin a whirlwind romance. Now a few months down the line she is married and moving onto Nathan’s family-owned Holiday Park. Other than a few threats of sabotage to the relationship things seem to be going smoothly for the couple until Holly starts to learn that Nathan has a secret from his past that he does not want anyone knowing about.

Reading Suspicion we see through the eyes of Holly as she starts to uncover what Nathan is so desperately trying to hide. I enjoyed the story and thought the characters were well developed. I liked and empathised with the majority of them and found myself becoming frustrated and irritated by Kyle, Nathan’s jealous brother and his attitude towards the main character.

The book was an easy light read and was entertaining too. I did, however, find the ending to be too abrupt and when looking back felt the story had very few real twists or turns for a mystery/suspense book.

Although I wasn’t a fan of the ending I did enjoy reading the story and would likely read another book from this author.

    Great review. I recently read a book that was really good until a weird ending. I gave it a 3.5 and then said why but the author seemed to like the review anyway.
