Tracy Buchanan is a web journalist and producer who lives in Milton Keynes with her husband, their little girl and their one-eyed Jack Russell. Tracy travelled extensively while working as a travel magazine editor, sating the wanderlust she developed while listening to her Sri Lankan grandparents' childhood stories - the same wanderlust that now inspires her writing.
August 2016 Book of the Month. A tension filled, dramatically striking tale, where there is far more to discover than you may at first think. Anna finds herself in the worst possible position when she takes a life in order to save her baby daughter. Events soon spiral out of control as a serial murderer from the past appears to be back in circulation. The clever unnerving prologue made me pause, and I read it again, just to confirm my initial feelings. Tracy Buchanan’s writing ensured I immediately connected with Anna as a shocking incident occurred, then a tight knot of unease grew inside me as events unfolded. An unknown and frankly chilling voice interjects every now and then, sewing discord, creating disquiet and uncertainty. With several blades thrusting for dominance, it’s easy to get lost in the moment before realising with a jolt that a voice from the past is threatening the future. ‘No Turning Back’ throws feelings and thoughts up in the air, before allowing them to settle for the end, and is a thought-provoking read. ~ Liz Robinson
A beautifully descriptive and cleverly intriguing read with a monumental secret lying buried at it’s heart. As Willow realises her memories of her childhood may be distorted, she begins a quest to piece the history of her family together. The storyline weaves between 2016 and the past in the most captivating way. Tracy Buchanan gradually raises an enigmatic veil to expose secrets, revealing that further surprises lie in wait, ready to ambush your attention. There are moments that are described so eloquently they are seared like a lightening strike onto your imagination, enabling a connection to the essence that binds this story together. The ache and intensity of feelings from the different time frames breathes life through and over the pages, which almost turn themselves. ‘My Sister’s Secret’ is not only fascinating, it is also unpredictable, deeply emotional, and a truly captivating read. ~ Liz Robinson
