This book proves that you don’t need to know every little secret about a person to fall for them…
Lily Valier is a woman who lives life in in simplicity. She has a small business and keeps to herself – until her sister Sara is murdered and Lily finds herself on the top of the suspect list and is now the talk of the town. Lily, as a character, was very easy to admire. She never showed her fear to those who talked about her behind her back and those who believed the lies surrounding her sisters murder.
P.I Aiden O’Rourke is brought in from Chicago to help the investigation with one goal – to sweet talk Lily into spilling her secrets. After all, that was what the police told him, that she was guilty. The depth in Aiden’s storyline was brilliant. As new information surfaced thought the story I found myself stuck in a love/hate relationship with him. I loved how I couldn’t tell if he was a good cop or a bad cop, I just couldn’t put the book down until I figured him out.
I hooked on to this story from the very first page. Ms Bannon wasted no time in getting straight into the plot. This fast-past novel left me on the edge of my seat the whole time. The writing style of jumping between Aiden and Lily’s point of view was fantastic and has to be one of my favourite writing techniques. The plot twists in this novel were so incredible and I found myself bitting my nails – anxious to see what happens next.
I recommend Nowhere to Run to the mystery readers out there as it proved itself to be a very interesting read and one I really enjoyed.
