About The Book
A SHOCKING DISCOVERY.
A COMMUNITY WRAPPED IN SECRETS.
A tiny island community is stunned by the discovery of a long-buried body.
For Stella Harvey the news is doubly shocking. The body has been found in the garden of her childhood home – the home her family fled without explanation twenty-five years ago.
Now, questioning her past and desperate to unearth the truth, Stella returns to the isolated island. But she quickly finds that the community she left isn’t as welcoming as she remembers – and that people in it will go to any length to protect their secrets.
One thing rings true…
You can’t bury the truth forever.
Stella Harvey lived for a short period in a beautiful island when she was young, now after so many years a body appears at the house she was living. She couldn’t resist and return to discover the truth and what happened to her older friends. Will she be risking her life too? You’ll have to read the book to discover the truth!
This is a psychological thriller full of family secrets and twists. Because soon after leaving the Evergreen Island Stella’s family totally disintegrated; her parents divorced, her older sister and alcoholic and his brother leaved them. So now she decides to return to Evergreen to discover what really made her family leave so quick in the middle of a stormy night? So many questions that will be solved chapter by chapter between the past and the present, to not leave anything left! I always guess what can a family can love one minute and hate the other forever. This is the case of this book, in a totally twisted level, there’s a body included too! Stella is really decided to move all the stones to have all her answers, but she will have so many more that we’ll see how she copes with everything.
I was totally engrossed with this story; the secrets, the lies, the hidden truths made this book unstoppable and an amazing read. The characters are well described and the island and their citizens are another important character, so atmospheric and twisted!
Come Back For Me is the best title for this book, you simply have to ask what do you really need to come back? 😉
