Blurb on the back

Imagine you meet a man, spend seven glorious days together, and fall in love. And its mutual: You’ve never been so certain of anything.

So when he leaves for a long-booked holiday and promises to call from the airport, you have no cause to doubt him. But he doesn’t call.

Your friends tell you to forget him, but you know they’re wrong: something must have happened; there must be a reason for his silence.

What do you do when you finally discover you’re right? That there is a reason – and that reason is the one thing you didn’t share with each other?

The truth.

My Thoughts

I really did enjoy reading this book. I was bought it by my husband and to be honest i had not even seen this book. It was a really gripping story and i did find it incredibly hard to put down.

Sarah was a successful career woman running a charity who had moved to LA from Gloucestershire. She had moved there after being involved in a car crash which had killed her sisters best friend. Sarah felt she could no longer live with her parents and her sister was no longer speaking to her. She moved in with one her best friends from school, Tommy. His family had moved over to LA and he offered her a place to stay.

Although the accident was not entirely Sarah’s fault she still carried a lot of remorse over what happened. On the anniversary of the accident she returned to England and visited the place it all happened. It was there that she met Eddie. At the time she thought it was purely coincidence that he was there too. Sarah and Eddie soon hit it off and spent seven days together before he went on a holiday that was pre arranged.

He said he would contact Sarah from the airport and despite all her messages he never called. All her friends were telling Sarah to forget about Eddie but she just couldn’t. Sarah tried her hardest to trace Eddie, she even tried to trace him on social media.

The Truth

Eddie had discovered exactly who Sarah was. He knew that he could not have feelings for her or a relationship. He had fallen in love with Sarah and didn’t know what to do. Eddie eventually flew to America and tracked her down to tell her that they can’t have a relationship as he had discovered the truth. That explained why they were at the same place on the same day. It all works out in the end.
