Never Coming Home by Evonne Wareham
All she has left is hope. When Kaz Elmore is told her five-year-old daughter Jamie has died in a car crash, she struggles to accept that she'll never see her little girl again. Then a stranger comes into her life offering the most dangerous substance in the world: hope. Devlin, a security consultant and witness to the terrible accident scene, inadvertently reveals that Kaz's daughter might not have been the girl in the car after all. What if Jamie is still alive? With no evidence, the police aren't interested, so Devlin and Kaz have little choice but to investigate themselves. Devlin never gets involved with a client. Never. But the more time he spends with Kaz, the more he desires her - and the more his carefully constructed ice-man persona starts to unravel. The desperate search for Jamie leads down dangerous paths - to a murderous acquaintance from Devlin's dark past, and all across Europe, to Italy, where deadly secrets await. But as long as Kaz has hope, she can't stop looking…
When I heard about this book I was intrigued - this must be the worst scenario that a parent could hear, Your child has been involved in an accident, she has died, yet later you hear that the child in the accident might not be yours.
Through the book we visit many countries: America, Germany and Italy and it during this journey that we discover family secrets, skeletons in the closet, and plenty of intrigue. There is something for everyone in this book: heartache, suspence, intrigue, a little romance and a fantastic plot line!
The book is one of those that you can't put down once you have read the first few pages! The author, Evonne Wareham, has a fantastic writing style, one which makes you ask questions and also makes you feel you are at the scene throughout the book. It is certainly one which tugs at your heartstrings as you read Kaz's story and I went through the full range of emotions while reading this book.
It was a fantastic read and one which I recommend most highly to all my blog readers.
Thank you to Choc Lit Publishing for sending me the book to review and the author for visiting my blog during the blog tour last month.
