Sometimes it’s safer to let things lie . . .
⭐⭐⭐⭐ Suspenseful Stars
I was excited to read this book as the authors other 2 books have been fantastic, and this one was no different.
Be prepared for a few twists to make you go “Wait…What?”
The story revolves around Anna and the death of her parents, she is grief stricken, not only because of the fact that she has lost her parents, but because of the way they died.
Two years ago, her father sent her mother a text saying “I can’t do this anymore” a few hours later his shoes, wallet and phone were found at the top of Beachy Head, and a witness called the police to say that he had jumped off of the cliff, 6 months later, her heartbroken mother did the same!
Now for you guys not living in the UK, you may not know what Beachy Head is, so here is a picture.
Now although beautiful and a popular tourist attraction, Beachy Head is unfortunately more famous for being a popular suicide spot, you may have seen it featured in the 70’s movie Quadrophenia, that iconic last scene was Beachy Head!
“There are an estimated 20 deaths by suicide a year at Beachy Head. The Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team conducts regular day and evening patrols of the area in attempts to locate and stop potential jumpers.
Workers at the pub and taxi drivers are also on the look-out for people contemplating suicide, and there are posted signs with the telephone number of the Samaritans urging potential jumpers to call them”
Anna is now a new mother and her baby takes up most of her time, she and her partner Mark live together in Anna’s parents house, and apart from the obvious depression that Anna is suffering from, she is mostly coping quite well with life……Until the note!
A fabulous read that is bound to keep you on your toes, and the edge of your seat.
🎧🎧 – Narrated by Gemma Whelan, who is a new to me narrator, she did a great job with this story, and I was really impressed with her.
If you like twists and turns in a story, and you have a spare credit, you won’t go wrong with this one!!
