really liked it

First of all I have to say what a great cover, it draws you in and makes you feel the thrill of anticipation as to where that road may lead. Unknown and waiting to be unravelled, where will the story take us? I love this feeling at the beginning of a book.
Tanya Dubois comes out of the shower and discovers her husbands body laying dead at the bottom of the stairwell in their family home. She does not react at all like you would think she may, scream? call for help? she does neither, she sits, has a drink and then makes a decision to leave her life completely behind. Then she runs. This begins a journey that is really quite an exciting ride. Tanya meets a girl called Blue in a bar, Blue senses that Tanya has troubles and offers her a place to stay. The issue here is that both women are on the run for different things, but between them they will clock up a few more incidents that will leave them both vulnerable in their own way, even if they are no longer sure who they are, or what lines they have crossed. There are other characters in the book that become very significant to the story line and influence many of the outcomes that will unfold.
This book is about deception, lies and deceit and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

Stephen Clynes Nice review Lee, glad you enjoyed this Thelma and Louise book. For some reason the front cover on the Kindle edition is of a woman's face and not an empty road pictured above.
