Another fabulously captivating and dramatic tale from Annabel Kantaria. 15 years after Stella and George last saw each other they meet at a school reunion, and a blazing attraction quickly begins to menace the order of their lives. Annabel Kantaria balances the two main characters beautifully, their personality, charisma, and motivation swirl on the page, inciting reaction. Stella and George both tell their own stories, corrosive manipulation is plain to see as you move between the tales. As doubt and mistrust crept into my consciousness, I found my feelings lurching into freefall, and then, oh, that ending! ‘The One That Got Away’ challenges and provokes, a simmering tension hovers and then boils into action, what a thoroughly entertaining read this is! ~ Liz Robinson

But something makes Stella click 'yes' to the invite to her school reunion. There's still a spark between them, and although their relationship ended badly, they begin an affair. But once someone gets you back, sometimes they're never going to let you go again...
