I'm glad that 'The Secret of Helena's Bay' by Sally Quilford is a novella rather than a novel which can, technically, be read at one sitting. The reason being that you won't want to put it (or your Kindle!) down until you've read the last, satisfying word!
It's got the tenderness of a love story and the taut tension of a thriller. It's quite an achievement for the writer to have written that into just one story. There's also the very human journey of a young women fighting to regain her self confidence and trust her instincts again after she's been taken to the cleaners by the man she thought was the love of her life. A very difficult task indeed. You find yourself cheering for her from the sidelines.
If an absorbing read is what you're looking for, go ahead and get this book. But while you're reading, for heaven's sake don't forget to feed the cats or put the rubbish out. And don't say I didn't warn you!
It's available in a Kindle edition on Amazon.com.
