 Rewind is the story of Natalie, an Instagram influencer who impulsively leaves her husband, and is murdered while the owner of the cottage where she is staying watches online. Lots of men behaving badly and plenty of opportunities for red herrings galore. The actual murderer took me by surprise, although it is a rather common trope. An interesting set up and structure. I loved Audrey, the determined journalist who helped solve this case. My take home was to check for hidden cameras and not post too much on line!
