What happens when you fall in love with the wrong person?
The consequences threaten to be far-reaching and potentially deadly.
Bone Deep is a contemporary novel of sibling rivalry, love, betrayal and murder. This is the story of two women: Mac, who is bent on keeping the secrets of the past from her only son, and the enigmatic Lucie, whose past is something of a closed book.
Their story is underpinned by the creaking presence of an abandoned water mill, and haunted by the local legend of two long-dead sisters, themselves rivals in love, and ready to point an accusing finger from the pages of history.
I really, really enjoyed this story!!
It gripped me and I loved the plot – it was very good, had just the right amount of detail to keep me hooked and I loved how the story unfolded – the ending was perfect for the book!
I thought that the characters were great, very well developed with excellent characterisation, their interaction was spot on and it really helped carry the book and that, combined with the excellent writing style gave it a great flow.
4.5 stars from me rounded up to 5 stars for Amazon and Goodreads – very highly recommended – grab a copy now, it is really worth it!!
