March 2018 Book of the Month

A tale in three parts and dual-narrative.  Part one gives you the before and after Layla disappeared, part two when her lover Finn is haunted by her and part three, obviously enough, the conclusion.  The narrative is in alternating chapters, one side, annoyingly, in italics.  The time frame; twelve years, the plot; terrific.  Finn, aged 28, falls heavily for Layla but on returning from a skiing trip in France she disappears.  Years later her sister, Ellen, enters Finn’s life and rescues him from his despair.  They have a gentle, solid, comfortable relationship which develops into love and eventually a proposal of marriage.  Then things start to go wrong and part two seriously changes gear giving us a very unstable narrator and escalating tension.  Part three turns the whole thing on its head again, drawing us at a hell of a pace to a conclusion that you only see coming as those final chapters unfold.  This is compulsive stuff, a one-sitting read, so give it space.

The competition will close on Friday 9 November with winners being notified by Friday 16 November.  "Simply superb, Come and Find Me is one hell of a clever, twisting, powerful story. This series is one of my favourites and DI Marnie Rome returns here in splendid style ... Sarah Hilary has the ability to take you into the words, to actually feel, to experience, and she sent my thoughts worming and writhing. At one point I found myself so exasperated and frustrated with one of the characters, it came as a shock when I came up for air and realised where I was. The ending buffeted me, surprised me, emotionally affected me, and a certain someone is still creeping around inside my mind. I already know that Come and Find Me will be one of my favourite reads of the year, and I think this is Sarah Hilary’s best yet, I simply can’t recommend this series highly enough." - Liz Robinson, Editorial Expert To have a chance of winning this fantastic prize, click the button below.
