About the book:
From the bestselling author of Our Little Secret comes a suspenseful new thriller featuring two estranged sisters desperate to keep their deepest and darkest secret where it belongs–in the past.
Close to my heart you’ll be, sisters forever you and me...
Alexandra Van Ness has the perfect life. She lives in an idyllic resort town tucked away in the Rocky Mountains, shares a designer loft with her handsome boyfriend, Chase, and has her dream job working in child protection. Every day, Alex goes above and beyond to save children at risk.
But when her long-lost sister, Ruth, unexpectedly shows up at her door, Alex’s perfect life is upended. Growing up, Ruth was always the troublemaker, pulling Alex into her messes, and this time will be no different. Still, Alex will help Ruth under one condition: we will never, ever, talk about the past. But when trouble befalls a local child, both women are forced to confront the secrets they’ve promised to keep buried.
Utterly engrossing and claustrophobic, Hurry Home is a tantalizing reflection of the chain-and-shackles relationship between sisters that asks: what lines wouldn’t you cross for your own?
Hurry Home by Roz Nay is really more of a domestic suspense novel than a thriller for the biggest part of the story. This tale of two reconciled sisters changes the point of view between them to dive right into all their secrets and lies.
Alexandra Van Ness has been leading a wonderful life with her perfect live in boyfriend and her job at CPS where she devotes all of her time saving children in need. Alex however has her perfect world turned upside down when her sister who she hasn’t seen in years turns up on her doorstep.
Alex really didn’t even know if Ruth was still alive after not seeing her all these years and her rough past that Alex escaped. Ruth however is very much alive and now pregnant with no where to go. As hesitant as Alex is she invites Ruth into her home but will she regret it?
Hurry Home was really another of those books that make me crave a nice bowl of popcorn to sit back and enjoy as the drama unfolds. It’s always addicting to me to sit back and wait for all the secrets and lies to unfold in a story like this and Hurry Home was no exception to that. With quite a few twists and turns I found this one to be quite an enjoyable read.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
