THE RUNAWAY – Linda Huber (Released March 24th, 2020)
Keep your secrets close to home…
Bad things happen in threes – or so it seems to Nicola. The death of her mother-in-law coincides with husband Ed losing his job and daughter Kelly getting into trouble with the police. Time to abandon their London lifestyle and start again by the sea in far-away Cornwall.
It should be the answer to everything – a new home, a new job for Ed and a smaller, more personal school for fifteen-year-old Kelly. But the teenager hates her new life, and it doesn’t take long before events spiral out of control and the second set of bad things starts for Nicola.
Some secrets can’t be buried.
Or… can they?
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars
If you’re looking for a real binge read, then look no further! This is a book you want to make sure you have some time cleared out in your schedule for. The fast pacing makes the 250 pages fly by and the author keeps you gripped in all the suspense and drama. It’s really hard to go into any real detail of this book because I don’t want to give any spoilers.
We get dual timelines, multiple POV’s with the different characters, and the author does an incredible job fully immersing us in their lives. You really connect with our narrators and get to experience everything along the way with them. We get the complexities of family dynamics and of course the age old question, do you ever truly know those you’re closest to?
I highly recommend picking this one up if you want something quick and suspenseful. Linda Huber is on my radar and I plan to look for more from her!
About the Author:
Linda Huber grew up in Glasgow, Scotland, but went to work in Switzerland for a year aged twenty-two, and has lived there ever since. Her day jobs have included working as a physiotherapist in hospitals and schools for handicapped children, and teaching English in a medieval castle. Currently she teaches one day a week, and writes psychological suspense novels and feel-good novellas with (most of) the rest of her time.
Her writing career began in the nineties, when she had over fifty short stories published in women’s magazines before turning to psychological suspense fiction. The Runaway is her ninth book, and is set mostly in Cornwall, where she spent several happy holidays as a child.
Linda’s other project is a series of feel-good novellas written under the pen name Melinda Huber and set on the banks of Lake Constance, just minutes from her home in north-east Switzerland. She really appreciates having the views enjoyed by her characters right on her own doorstep!
