ABOUT THE BOOK:
There are two sides to every story: yours and mine, ours and theirs, His & Hers. Which means someone is always lying.
Anna Andrews finally has what she wants. Almost. She’s worked hard to become the main TV presenter of the BBC’s lunchtime news, putting work before friends, family, and her now ex-husband. So, when someone threatens to take her dream job away, she’ll do almost anything to keep it.
When asked to cover a murder in Blackdown―the sleepy countryside village where she grew up―Anna is reluctant to go. But when the victim turns out to be one of her childhood friends, she can’t leave. It soon becomes clear that Anna isn’t just covering the story, she’s at the heart of it.
DCI Jack Harper left London for a reason, but never thought he’d end up working in a place like Blackdown. When the body of a young woman is discovered, Jack decides not to tell anyone that he knew the victim, until he begins to realise he is a suspect in his own murder investigation.
One of them knows more than they are letting on. Someone isn’t telling the truth. Alternating between Anna’s and Jack’s points of view, His & Hers is a fast-paced, complex, and dark puzzle that will keep readers guessing until the very end.
After reading and loving Alice Feeney’s previous novel I was thrilled to learn about her latest novel, His & Hers. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy and was eager to begin reading and I was not disappointed!
As the story goes, there are always two sides to a story. This novel is told from alternating pov’s of the main characters, and told from Jack and Anna’s perspective. I loved the back and forth perspective of them both and hearing their version of how things happened and hear their side of the story. I find it adds to their character development and you get a true sense of their personality as the story is told by them first hand.
Everyone in this story has something to hide, is telling lies, half-truths, and very complex. Who can you believe? With an ending that will shock you and you will not see coming, you are going to love this novel! Be sure to make yourself comfortable when you begin this book, because once you start reading you will not want to stop to put this book down again until you are on the very last page!
Way to go Alice. I am thrilled to see what you come out with next!
