Why would you pretend your life is a dream when you’re living a nightmare?
Annie and Dom lead perfect lives in a lovely cottage in a quiet village by the sea, with flowers at the front gate and an apple tree in the garden. Everyone knows them: generous, loving Dom, creative, joyful Annie.
But their neighbours don’t see Annie as she sits waiting for Dom well into the night. They don’t see her smiling through her tears. They don’t know what the perfect couple are hiding.
They just hear the sirens that break the silence of the night and see the flames that rise against the dark sky.
And the morning after, what everyone wants to know is – which one was to blame?
A brilliantly twisty tale of family secrets and the darkness that can lie behind closed doors, The One to Blame will keep you turning the pages till the final devastating revelation. Fans of Lisa Jewell, Gillian Flynn and Louise Candlish will love it.
Do not pick up this book unless you devote time to read it because once you start…there’s no going back.
Susie Lynes is amazing at causing readers to experience that jaw dropping twist that all readers of thrillers hope for.
You know the one… it happens when the plot seems to maintain your interest and then… BAM! She reveals the twist that causes your jaw to ha g open and question all you knew or thought you knew about the story.
This story is packed full of shady characters. The best example is Dom… I mean, if you don’t hate his disgusting guts almost immediately, I would question what book you were reading! It seems so obvious that Annie and Isla have secrets that have caused them to fall out or lose touch.
But what are the secrets? What are they hiding? I love how the story is told from multiple perspectives across time periods and the plot slowly reveals the truth behind how Annie and Dom met their fate.
The truth will shock you and definitely leave you breathless! I hugged my kindle at the end. And I’ll leave that right there in order to avoid spoilers!
I LOVED this thriller and with each of her books I read, I am reminded of being a forever fan! 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
