Hello and welcome to my stop on the blog tour for The House on the Edge of the Cliff by Carol Drinkwater.
About The Book
“No one else knows what happened that summer. Or so she believes . . .Grace first came to France a lifetime ago. Young and full of dreams of adventure, she met two very different men.
She fell under the spell of one. The other fell under hers.
Until one summer night shattered everything . . .
Now, Grace is living an idyllic life with her husband, sheltered from the world in a magnificent Provençal villa, perched atop a windswept cliff.
Every day she looks out over the sea – the only witness to that fateful night years ago.
Until a stranger arrives at the house. A stranger who knows everything, and won’t leave until he gets what he wants.”
What I Thought
The House On The Edge Of The Cliff is one to pack in your suitcase and take on holiday with you. Mostly set in France this is a good read for chilling by the pool and some scenes will sure give you a chill!
While I normally enjoy a past and present storyline I couldn’t help but find myself more drawn to the past timeline in Paris where Grace is just setting out in life, living, loving, learning, making mistakes and getting herself caught up in trouble. Jump to the present and her past is back to haunt her, but not everything is as it’s seems and Grace is left a bit blindsided.
The House On The Edge Of The Cliff is a good read, it’s really quite descriptive so, as I said, it would make a great leisurely read by the pool.
Many thanks to Penguin Books for having me on this tour, all opinions are my own and I am not paid to give them.
