I have always loved books ever since I learnt to read. The sort of person who would look at an instruction manual if there were nothing else available. Not that that has happened too often - I have tottering piles of books not to mention e books. I will read almost anything as l long as it holds my interest. Besides books. I love music, photography, cryptic crosswords and playing Fitz 1 & 2 games.
The Darkest Secret: A Novel - Alex Marwood

This is a bit of a confusing book (especially on a kindle when it isn't easy to flick there and back), with interchangeable characters with one thing in common, the fact that nearly all of them are intensely unlikeable. Selfish, mean minded, all revolving around the ghastly Sean Jackson who discards wives like yesterday's underwear. What did happen to Coco, one of Jackson's twin daughters, when she disappeared in 2004? The book moves between the present day and that night in 2004, with different POV's from various characters. I can't say this was an enjoyable read, although it was entertaining. I did carry on turning pages to see if these "lovely" people could possibly get any worse! Look forward to the next book by this author.
