My Mini Thoughts

Kristy and her family move to Wales after a traumatic event in London.  I had so many guesses as to what the event was, but none of them were correct.  Thankfully it doesn’t take long for that piece of information to come to light.

So now she’s in Wales with her two daughters and her husband who quit his job and is now trying to write a book.  Kristy and her husband have joined forces with her mom to renovate an abandoned house and turn it into a bed and breakfast.   She knew there would be struggles going into business with her mom, but she had no idea.  When her cousin Selena shows up with her wheelchair bound daughter  things really start to get interesting.  Dead flowers suddenly appeared at the front door,  the guest from the past nobody saw coming, and the body at the bottom of the stairs.

How many secrets is too many? For this family the answer is you can never have too many secrets.  It’s one thing after another.  Lie after lie, suspicion after suspicion that is all tied up in a nice bow at the end.  Or is it? 

Thank you HarperCollins and Author Claire Douglas for the #gifted copy!  This one pubs tomorrow (11/17)!

Goodreads Synopsis

Following a traumatic event in London, Kirsty Woodhouse packs up her family and moves back to her native Wales. There she sets up her new home with her husband and two young daughters, and goes into business with her difficult mother managing a guesthouse in the Brecon Beacons.

But when the guesthouse is ready to be occupied, Kirsty encounters the last person she ever expected to see: her estranged cousin Selena. It has been seventeen years since they last talked—when Selena tore everything apart between them.

Why has she chosen now to walk back into Kirsty’s life? Is Selena running from something too? Or is there an even darker reason for her visit?

As Kirsty becomes increasingly concerned for the safety of her daughters, her dream home begins to feel like her worst nightmare.

Kirsty knows that once you invite trouble into your home, it can be murder getting rid of it . . .
