I can hear you all wondering why I am announcing my book of the year in October?

Sometimes you read a book and every word and line excites you and sits with you like a security blanket, you stay up half the night as you just cannot stop reading it. Β You have no idea what will happen next as it is so very unpredictable so this keeps you turning those pages as quickly as you can, you cannot wait for the next terrifying thing to happen. This even made me a bit jumpy as the weather was awful at the time of reading this so there were noises outside that were alien to my ears, this may have even contributed to the power of this story. Β I know in my heart that this is probably one of the best books I have ever read or likely to read in the future. Β So this is why I am making this my best book of the year 2017.

I also feel that many will relate to some of the events that happen in this story, I know I can and with the ME TOΒ status going round Facebook at the moment it makes you realise the magnitude of the domestic violence problem

The story starts with Freya the P.A for James, she has worked hard to get to this position and is well liked. Β Living with her best friend, visiting her parents and spending time with her boy friend all make her life complete. Β Until she meets Kane!

Dazzled by his charm and charisma she has soon ditched her boy friend preferring to spend time with Kane, his cars, money, flat and extravagant life style all appear to put blinkers on her eyes to everything else.

He controls her, if she disobeys you begin to see the nasty traits that this man has, blaming his up-bringing on everything he can always talk her round with his devious, underhand ways.

Eventually she leaves, thinking this will all be over but how wrong she was, this is only the beginning of a terrifying ordeal that will leave her with scars that last forever they may fade but they will always be there in the back of her mind. Her family gets pulled in, her friend end’s up leaving the flat and Freya is back at her parents but at least feels safe there.

Years later it all starts again and if you thought the first part was bad then this gets even worse, not knowing what he will do next Freya’s life is once again on hold just waiting for the next thing to happen but this time she has to protect her daughter.

This is an excellent five-star read that you can buy now here at Amazon.

Patricia Dixon writes this in the first person so it reads a bit like a diary and I think that is what makes it so compelling.

I am looking forward to reading the next book from a very talented author. Β Thank you for a brilliant story.
