Reviews

  • "This modern Brief Encounter asks what it is that stops most of us from instigating change. Throughout we are kept in exquisite suspense, waiting to see whether the beleaguered pair will seize their chance of happiness."

    Independent
  • "Totally, blissfully absorbing"

    The Times
  • "Kennedy can effortlessly inhabit the voice of the female narrator, and Laura’s dilemma will leave you absolutely gripped to the final page. "

    Sunday Mirror
  • "A gripping emotional rollercoaster; pressing so many buttons it’s likely to have readers examining their own what-might-have-beens."

    Daily Mail
  • "Possesses a Hitchcockian approach to this narrative hub; tension and twists are administered in equal measure in order to retain readers’ emotional attachment to otherwise domestic scenarios. The ordinary becomes, through his carefully plotting, extraordinary. Kennedy’s trick is to pull all the strings of thriller writing in the romance genre… a novel that’s both moving and realistic as it broaches that awful chasm between what we could be and what we presently are."
