Reviews
I loved the Keeper of Lost Things, so I was really looking forward to the second Ruth Hogan book. I really liked the 'word of the day' - glad I'm not the only one who likes to do that. I enjoyed this one, but not as much as the first. The link between the two women was obvious to me from the start, but that didn't detract from the enjoyment. I was just a little disappointed that - to me - the ending felt a little rushed.
