Amazing book! So many different characters & so many different things happening but it worked for this book & wasn't confusing at all. The ending was great & loved the little twist at the end that I wasn't expecting! Obsessed with this author

This is my fourth book from Lucinda Berry, and just like her other ones, i thoroughly enjoyed reading this. I was hooked from beginning to end, and i know people are are complaining about the ending being rushed, but this is actually the best ending I've read from her so far lol

As usual, Lucinda Berry is excellent with writing the themes of women struggling with their teenage sons, and this time there was 3 families to keep up with, which was a little bit challenging but it worked. I loved reading the domestic abuse storyline too, I think that was done really well.

Also as per usual, she makes her stories so gut wrenchingly emotional and her characters so easy to relate and sympathise with.
