A first novel that is both a genuine whodunnit and an interesting examination of family relationships. You may well work out some of the answers before the likeable heroine does but you'll be doing better than I did if you foresee the final twist.
'Lucy's family seem a funny lot. The mother, Liz Seaton, a bit of a cool one. Good looker, though. And her sister, trying to comfort her with scones and a load of religious chitchat. A bit touched if you ask me. Understandable, I suppose.'
'You mean her daughter going missing all those years ago? Enough to unhinge anybody'.
