ABOUT THE BOOK:
Sometimes there’s no use running from your past. . . .
Genevieve has secrets that no one knows. In Rome she can be whoever she wants to be. Her neighbours aren’t nosy; her Italian is passable; the shopkeepers and restaurant owners now see her as a local, and they let her be. It’s exactly what she wants.
One morning, after getting groceries, she returns to her 500-year-old Trastevere apartment. She climbs to the very top of the staircase, the stairs narrowing the higher she goes. When she gets to her door, she puts down her bags and pushes the key into the lock . . .
. . . and the door swings open.
It’s unlocked. Sometimes she doesn’t lock it because break-ins aren’t common in Rome. But Genevieve knows she locked the door behind her this morning. She has no doubt.
She should leave, call the police. What if someone is in her apartment, waiting for her? But she doesn’t.
The apartment is empty, and exactly as she left it, perfectly tidy and not a thing out of place . . . except for the small box on her kitchen table. A box that definitely wasn’t there this morning. A box postmarked from the US. A box that is addressed to “Lucy Callahan.”
A name that she hasn’t used in ten years.
Edge-of-your-seat riveting, K.L. Armstrong’s new book will keep you turning the pages until the very end.
Another fabulous, must-read novel from K.L. Armstrong that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat as you fly through the pages of her new addictive, pulse-pounding novel that will leave you hooked!
Imagine building a new life for yourself, in another country with a new name, leaving your past behind you and fitting in with a new life. One day you come home to find a box on your table addressed to you – the OLD you – the name you haven’t used for years! That is the predicament Genevieve finds herself in. Who is the person that has sent her the box? How did they get into her apartment, and how do they know her real name?
As you read the story all of these answers are revealed and we learn about her past and what made her start over with a new life and with a new name. I loved reading through the chapters in this novel and it was a fast-paced read that I couldn’t stop once I started. I loved reading about all the twists and turns, and the revelations that come to light. WHat makes Genevieve tick, nd what is she running away from and trying to forget?
An addictive read that you must add to your collection ASAP. You will love this book!
