I’ve been searching for another book club to join, as the Britmums Book Club has gone very quiet. So I was pleased that I’ve now found that Mumsnet has a Book Club too. And they have sent me a free copy of “Falling” by Emma Kavanagh to review.
This is what it says on the back cover.
A plane crash. A murder.
Jim is a retired police officer whose beloved daughter has disappeared, and he knows something is wrong.
Tom’s wife was on the plane, and he must break the news to their only son.
Cecilia had left her family, but survived the crash, and sees no way out.
Freya is grieving the loss of her father. But as she delves into his past, she may not like what she finds.
Four people with something to hide.
This book is a thriller and I found it very hard to put down. I won’t say much as I don’t want to spoil it for those who haven’t read it yet. I will fill you in on characters though. Tom is a police officer investigating the murder of Jim’s daughter. And Tom is Cecilia’s husband. Freya is the daughter of the plane pilot. But I loved the way that it had sub-stories running through it, following the four main characters. Each chapter is time and date stamped and told by one of the characters. I liked following the story this way. After a couple of wrong guesses, I had guessed the murderer before the end, but I was still left with an unanswered question regarding the plane crash.
“Falling” is Emma Kavanagh’s debut novel and the paperback edition is currently on sale on Amazon for £3.49 compared to an RRP of £6.99. It is also available in hardback, kindle and audio download formats. And I see that Emma Kavanagh’s next novel “Hidden” is now available for pre-order on Amazon, due to be published next April. I thoroughly recommend Falling and will be adding Hidden to my reading wishlist.
