Never Coming Home by Evonne Wareham
I picked this book up because 1) I trust Choc Lit as a publisher – I’m yet to read one of their books that I didn’t enjoy and 2) Evonne and I are both short listed for the Joan Hessayon Award and I felt I should check out the competition ;-).
Kaz Elmore’s daughter dies in a car crash in America (whilst visiting Kaz’s ex husband). Devlin is the man who saw the crash, called the police, and held the little girl’s hand when she died. When Devlin visits the UK for work (he’s a security consultant), he goes to visit the mother of ‘his girl’ who died. He’s a hard man, with a violent and scary past, and the death of the child has moved him in a way he’d never expected. So far, good set up. But then, by the end of chapter two, a bombshell. From the pictures of Kaz’s daughter, it becomes obvious that her little girl and the girl who died in the car crash are not the same child. Bam! That was me hooked.
I raced through the book. It are up every minute of spare time I had, until I finished it. It was compelling and fast paced and full of suspense (and has a very high body count). Once I’d finished, I was still thinking about the characters days afterwards.
So, if you like your romance mixed with fast paced action and suspense thrown in around it, you’ll like this book. If you’re freaked out by the idea of children being abducted/killed by crazy people, you’ll probably be traumatised by it.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll just go check on my kids…
