About this deal

Throughout, certain events felt a bit rushed and I wish we had gotten into more detail, but overall, it was an interesting read that kept my attention.

It is a tightly written book where words are not wasted and you are left anxiously waiting to find out what happens next. This writing style jumps around a lot so its hard to keep up with what's going on, you just have to really pay attention lol. The two young girls Maisie and Shirley shared a room and their teacher Stephen Smith had another room. the climax was amazing and there was a point (when martin broke our of jail) that i couldn't put the book down at all. Some parts worked better for me than others but, all in all, this is an engaging, easy, and enjoyable read, perfect for those summer days by the pool.

I found this was overused and every time we switched back I had to reorient myself on what had happened. I feel it’s safe to say her latest one, ‘Coming to Find You‘, is slightly different from other books I’ve read by this author. This was a beautifully written and amazing story surrounding a beautiful regency house and the people who lived in the house.

Coming to Find You splits into two parallel stories set in the same location, one in the present, the other during WW2. Both stories were equally captivating and as the story unfolds you begin to understand the different leads and how the stories intertwine. To escape the paparazzi, Nancy leaves her job and flat in London and travels down to Devon to stay in her grandmother's house that she inherited. Henry was not a nice man, but he had his demons from the First World War, you get the impression he only married Elizabeth because she owned Tall Chimney’s, a beautiful house with amazing views. But the end of the trial is just the beginning of a new nightmare for Nancy: the press is rabid, certain that she is hiding something.At first when the story went into the past to the time of the war, I wasn’t sure how it would connect with the story of Nancy, who is reeling from the murder of her mother and step dad, but the two stories collided wonderfully and it quickly made sense why we were told about the past and I thought it was really clever. What are the secrets that tie the two women to the house and will past secrets come back to haunt them. There’s an come clues, but they just read like facts, I didn’t mind reading them, but I wasn’t eager to find them out either.

I am not sure which section I loved the most as the historical setting was as compelling as the present-day setting. Parallels of theme between the two stories add depth and the way the strands are gathered together into a satisfying finale is so skilfully written. I didn’t really understand why we had two different plots occurring at the same time but different time frames: one current and one in the past during 1939 in the Second World War, and it’s not until the end where it’s wrapped up together. Coming to Find You is such an inspired title because so many things are coming to find the characters here; the past, danger, death, people, the media and the truth.

Present day we have Nancy who goes to get away from publicity to Three Chimneys after her stepbrother is found guilty of murder.
