They say buses always arrive in twos. Well so do books from the Mumsnet Book Club. Before I had even finished reading “Fallout“, I received another free book to review. This time it is Coming Home by Annabel Kantaria. Exactly the same happened last year with the two previous books from the club.
This is what it says on the back cover.
An ordinary family. A devastating betrayal.
Evie has been away from home long enough to bury the pain that shaped her childhood. Now, with the sudden death of her father, she must return. Back to the same house. Back to the memories. Back to her mother.
At first, coming home feels unexpectedly comforting. But, as she goes through her father’s files, Evie uncovers a secret that opens old wounds and changes her life forever.
That’s only the beginning.
As Evie’s world starts to shatter around her, she realises that those she loves most are also those capable of the deepest betrayal.
Without giving out any spoilers, the book starts with Evie living in Dubai, receiving a phone call from her Mum to say her Dad has died. She flies back to England and we follow her memories and discoveries, interspersed with flashbacks to 20 years ago when her brother died in childhood.
“Coming Home” is the first novel by Annabel Kantaria and is published by Harlequin MIRA. The paperback edition is currently on sale on Amazon for £7.99. It is also available in kindle format. I do thoroughly recommend this book. It is a very good riveting read that I didn’t want to put down and I do hope Annabel will be writing a second novel.
