Last week, I was reading in the sunshine with a beagle asleep at my toes and I couldn't want for anything else. It was the perfect way to relax and forget all that was on my mind. I was completely consumed by the storyline and what was to become of the characters at the end. Do you ever find yourself unable to do anything else, not until the last page of the book is read?
Second Life is written by SJ Watson - the author behind the highly successful Before I Go to Sleep . I do not want to give too much away so I will keep it short. It begins with the news that Julia's sister had been murdered in Paris. With the news, Julia becomes restless and starts to search for answers. This leads to an online encounter that quickly becomes more, but not everything is quite as it seems.
"A Fatal Attraction for the digital age, but with a crucial twist . . . Watson is a master at turning the screw." (Evening Standard)
As for the ending, it was one I did not see coming. A brilliant ending!
The flowers, above, have been placed inside the book to be pressed. I can't wait to show you what I plan to do with them once they are pressed...
