Louise Leighton’s life has fallen apart, all because of one fateful night. Her husband is an adulterer, her sister is his mistress, and soon, Louise will lose everything she owns. But she never imagined she would lose her daughter.
Eighteen-year-old Brooke Leighton is missing. It’s up to Louise and the Metropolitan Police to find her. Has Brooke run away? Or has she been taken against her will? And can Louise aid the investigation without mentioning the night where all of her troubles began?
If she mentions that night, she will incriminate her daughter for heinous crimes. But if she doesn’t, she may never find Brooke; and if she has been abducted, the person who took her may come for Louise, too.
Sometimes the past comes back to kill you.
Thoroughly enjoyed this quick easy read, I flew through the chapters turning the pages quickly readings as fast as I could to quench the rapid excitement of finding out what exactly did happen on ‘that night’
It took a while for the truth to out to the reader but the way it was delivered worked really well, I loved how the sequence of events were told through different points of view with the delivery of emotion weaving within the chapters realistically carrying strength. The story was gripping, chilling and intriguing from the outset and as the plot unfolded and we learnt a little at a time, the intrigue only built. Jack Jordon was drip feeding us information continuing to play on our curiosity drawing us deeper and deeper in, to the point where the book remained in our grasps long past the dead of night, on a Sunday, when you know a super early rise is required the next morning.
I didn’t always understand the significance of things, I didn’t understand how someone could gain access to a locked house, why ‘gifts’ were left and in the quantities they were or how the man on the train played his part…until we heard it all from the words of the pursuer himself, everything made sense and concluded satisfyingly with all loose ends tidied up.
The whole plot underpinning the story itself is a really sad one, that something so tragic has happened in unexpected circumstances and the misfortune of it all. I think everyone suffered from ‘that night’ and you have no idea how you would react and how far you would go to protect the ones you love, which inevitably is all the characters in Anything for Her do.
Great read, one I would recommend and I certainly look forward to reading more by this captivating writer.
