I loved this book. The story is gripping and the plot gently scary. On the first page you feel that need to turn the page and see what happens next. The descriptions are so vivid that you really feel you are there, in France. You feel you know the people, and care about what happens to them. I look forward to this author's next novel.

A beautifully written easy read. A relaxing way to spend a rainy afternoon. When Sylvie's husband dies she is forced to build a new life for herself. But all is not as it seems. How well did she know Trevor? This is an interesting story. I wanted to know what secrets Trevor had and I wanted a happy ending for Sylvie. This book is fairly short but there is a lot of action packed into it.

I enjoyed this book. It was quite atmospheric with some fantastic descriptions of the South of France - an area which I love. The first part is narrated in first person by Slyvie, a young woman married to the older Trevor. After a small argument while on holiday in Nice, Trevor collapses with a heart attack. The novel then moves forward three years and switches to a third person narrator. This is the only negative of the novel for me. I much preferred Sylvie as a narrator, but I quickly got past this as the story carried me along.
I was captivated by the mystery of the rest of the book.
