A Place For Us by Harriet Evans

The blurb
The house has soft, purple wisteria twining around the door.
You step inside.
The hall is cool after the hot summer’s day.
The welcome is kind, and always warm.
Yet something makes you suspect life here can’t be as perfect as it seems. After all, the brightest smile can hide the darkest secret.
But wouldn’t you pay any price to have a glorious place like this? Welcome to Winterfold.
Martha Winter’s family is finally coming home.

What i say
I did read the first two part of this earlier in the year but did not get the last two parts so i was happy when i got this book it a gripping read

The storyline jumps back and forward in time and each chapter alternates between each of the members of the Winter family and the chef Joe. The family seem to have a lot of secrets . Martha and David kept from them all i not sure why Martha can no longer keep the secrets . she plans a family party to tell them all . This is were we meet the Lovely chef Joe he did catering for them i was not sure of him she had made up her mind to tell the family but none of the family could predict the big secret Martha has been hiding. Did you guess?

Each chapter alternates between each member of the family with get to hear about them all. it told by that family members point of view and all of them seem to have their own dilemmas and problems it was not hard to follow as it jump from past to present
It got lots of twist and twist plus some cliffhangers it will hook you

Cat lived in Paris and has kept her own secret from her family for year i like her best she was a lovely character She seemed the more normal one of the family! Can i say that!

Joe i loved to he seem to be very misunderstood and I really felt sorry for him at times he just seem such a warm character i was not sure of him to start with .

Martha, Florence and Daisy all seemed very wried characters to me .I did feel Florence and Martha’s problems were all caused from the effect of the secrets but what was the secret ?
i did like florence she was very wired but a good character she was a art teacher
Daisy was just an awful character i did not like her all what did you think?

As you read each chapter more secrets come to light it was nice to hear how some of the family where trying to change their life around it added to the drama of the story they look like the perfect happy family but were they ?

The book very cleverly written it full of twists and turns it will just hooks you i did find some parts a little but slow but i think the added to the drama of the story i liked all the secrets that we keep finding out about by the end of the book i just wanted them to be happy
It a great read i will kept you guessing right to the end you will enjoy
I like to thank bookbridgr for letting me read & review
