Twists & Turns

This is the story of a family who put the capital "D" into dysfunctional! Rachel Porter returns to her home town following the death of her mother. She isn't there for the funeral, that was days ago, but rather because she is needed for paperwork around probate. She finds her sister Frances burning everything in sight as she empties the moulding wreck of the family home, The Limes. The other sister Stella has disappeared. Then two bodies are found - an adult in the woodshed by Frances and a baby in a cupboard by Rachel. So what exactly happened in The Limes?

I really enjoyed this book. There are one or two small things which didn't quite work for me but they were small &  didn't stop me moving on with the story. I did work out some of the plot before it happened but not all of it - to be fair there are a lot of twists!

I enjoyed the characters in this book. The police are about the only really likeable characters as the rest are very damaged people. However, they were interesting people. I can't say too much as I really don't want to give out any spoilers!

On the whole this was a well constructed book with interesting characters. I shall read another book by this author and intend to purchase "The Forgotten Room".

I received a free copy of this book via Netgalley.
