Beneath The Surface by Heidi Perks

Thanks to the author Heidi Perks, I received an ARC of this title in exchange for an honest review.........

I don't know where you are.....I don't know what I've done.....

Fourteen year old Abigail Ryder arrives home from school one afternoon to find that her mother & twin baby stepsisters are gone, things are missing from the house and the babies room is completely empty but none of this makes sense to Abigail.  She contacts the police and as she's been interviewed they think that she's a troublemaker and their suspicions are confirmed when her grandmother Eleanor arrives to the house and has a word with them. Then her grandmother tells her to forget them all and move on, there's no choice other than face the future - alone.

Fourteen years on, Abi and Adam are a happy couple on the verge of parenthood but the past comes back to haunt Abi, the only way forward is to go back and uncover the truth - and reveal the dreadful secrets a mother has been hiding all these years......

I didn't like this, I LOVED it and was hooked from the very first page.  The story flows well throughout the book. I really enjoyed Heidi's book which I read in a couple of days.  It  is told in a dual time frame, back as far as 2001 and then 14 years later.  This story had it all from a little bit of humor, love, betrayal, a web of lies, protectiveness to more sensitive and hard-hitting issues like the lengths that some people will go to to cover up a family secret - I found I had a little tear in my eye at the end along with shedding a few along the way, so grab this book, curl up on the couch with a box of chocolates and prepare to have a few lump in your throat moments too. It will definitely not disappoint and I HIGHLY recommend it.  This is Heidi's debut novel and I'm really looking forward to reading more of her work very soon but no pressure!
