Review: Last Seen Alive by Claire Douglas

The Hero

Libby Hall never really wanted to be noticed. But after she saves the children in her care from a fire, she finds herself headline news. And horrified by the attention. It all reminds her of what happened nine years ago. The last time she saw her best friend alive.

The Swap

Which is why the house swap is such a godsend. Libby and her husband Jamie exchange their flat in Bath for a beautiful, secluded house in Cornwall. It's a chance to heal their marriage - to stop its secrets tearing them apart.

The Hideaway

But this stylish Cornish home isn't the getaway they'd hoped for. They make odd, even disturbing, discoveries in the house. It's so isolated-yet Libby doesn't feel entirely alone. As if she's being watched.

Is Libby being paranoid? What is her husband hiding? And. As the secrets and lies come tumbling out, is the past about to catch up with them?

Claire's Review 4.5 Stars

This is the story of Libby and Jamie, who after going through some marital problems decide to agree to a house swap after receiving a leaflet through the door. Swapping their small flat in Bath for a Cottage in Cornwall for a week. However, this is just the start of things that will turn all their lives upside down.

Wow! This book had me hooked, page after page and I really could not predict what was next to come. This book packed so much story into the pages and was truly incredibly written and I cannot stress how much this is a total must read! I really want to say so much about this book with so much to the story, it's hard to go into detail without posting any spoilers.

The only reason I cannot give this a full 5 Stars, is because of the ending. I had too many questions that were left open and I felt as if there was a chunk of the book missing at the end. Despite this, though the book is a must read and perfect for taking on holiday!
