About this deal

Following periods of living in Los Angeles and the South of France, she currently lives in Gloucestershire with her husband James, stepsons Michael and Luke, and mischievous dogs Coco and Lulu. Hired by Freda, Joely is there to help uncover what really happened – but as the story starts to unravel, it will end in a way she could never have imagined. The characters made increasingly irrational decisions, swept over the actions and consequences of other characters that had life changing results. She is also the author of Just One More Day and One Day at a Time, the moving memoirs of her childhood in Bristol during the 1960s. I think this is one of the novels great strengths, Lewis uses characters to pose questions to our readers and some of these questions will stick with you for a long time.

Young Freda is 14/15 and Sir is in his mid-to-late twenties and although it doesn’t sound like a huge leap of an age gap, we have to remind ourselves that it is. Actions done or things said by particular characters are just really dramatic at times and I felt it was a bit unbelievable because it was over the top. One minute she is full of memories she regales Joely with, the next she takes to her room and doesn't speak to her for a day. This book poses the question, if it is a case of statutory rape, and an adult having carnal knowledge of a minor, but both parties are truly in love with each other, does that make it okay?Very evocative and they gave a real sense of remoteness so you just know something unexpected and untoward will happen. My second Susan Lewis read of the year and whilst there were large sections of the book that held my attention, on the whole it didn't quite hook me like Home Truths had done.

She travels from London to a remote area in North Devon to Dimmett House, riddled with secret rooms, towers and turrets and darkened halls. A compelling, timely mystery’ bestselling author, Lisa Ballantyne ‘You’ll be surprised and captivated right to the end!Holly is a precocious 15 year old that should be taught a little more respect than the way she spoke to her parents, grandmother and even Freda.
