Nothing can break the bond between sisters …

When Beatrice gets a frantic call in the middle of Sunday lunch to say that her younger sister, Tess, is missing, she boards the first flight home to London. But as she learns about the circumstances surrounding her sister's disappearance, she is stunned to discover how little she actually knows of her sister's life – and unprepared for the terrifying truths she must now face.

The police, Beatrice's fiancé and even their mother accept they have lost Tess but Beatrice refuses to give up on her. So she embarks on a dangerous journey to discover the truth, no matter the cost.

The bond between sisters - is proven unbreakable in this book.

We follow the story of Beatrice jetting back to London, to help try to find her sister who is missing. And when Tess' body is found, it only pushes Beatrice further to squash the prejudiced verdict that she committed suicide. She knew her best, and refuses to believe that her funloving sister would take her own life.

The book is written in a way - that Beatrice has flashbacks to different times and places and the experiences that she shared with Tess, and at one point she feels like she is losing her mind. She's already lost her job back in the US and her fiancé is just one short step from leaving her for good.

But through all the dramas, hurdles and people that cross her path - she does get the answers - which shock her, but also gives her a peace that she would not have been able to find if she had accepted the original findings into Tess' death.

Read this book - you will enjoy it!

Rating : 7/10
