As usual in my reviews, I will not rehash the publisher's synopsis, but instead recommend that you read this for yourself! I do like when unsuspecting secrets are revealed after someones death, can't say I liked what it was in this particular circumstance though. It was only in the last 15% of the book that my interest was peaked and I was engaged with what was happening to the characters and that I felt the pace picked up.

You also get occasional chapters from Blanche, who is initially not connected to the story until the author ties everything together. The book is well-written and well-plotted, I just thought the main twist was really obvious and very similar to other books I’ve read recently.Yes, Riona does confide in me from time to time, and she was so upset about this that it all came tumbling out.

I will never forget the day I came home from junior high school to find my mom waiting for me with one of the Harlequin novels from my stash. The resulting suspicion and mounting sense of distrust and danger makes for a page-turning rollercoaster ride.By completing your purchase, you agree to Audible's Conditions of Use and authorise Audible to charge your designated card or any other card on file. No One Saw It Coming opens with Jack and Hanna Madden who are at a lavish and elegant evening party in Clifton, a posh Bristol suburb. Driven by intrigue around an upper-middle-class couple and their circle of friends, an undercurrent of unease pervades the story, with escalating menace seeping through their day-to-day lives of dinner parties, lunches, and doing charitable work. The characters are well written and the interplay feels genuine on the whole (wasn't sure about the Hugo subplot as he was so vile!

However, the family dynamic isn’t the most straightforward and there are lots of secrets being withheld.Nice to have the familiarity of Andee and Graeme, loved the new characters of Jack and Hanna and their children and the wonderful Seb such a fantastic supportive friend to the whole family.

The big twist, the big reveal I felt was obvious from very early in the story, partly cuz I've read that plot twist in several other books and partly cuz the "clues" were very obvious from the get-to. No One Saw It Coming delivers an interesting psychological thriller that will have readers ready to explore the author’s next story.There's a thread in the first half that I really didn't enjoy and I believe that a different vehicle could have been used to facilitate the storyline. Susan Lewis fans will eat this one up, I would also recommend to those who like family sagas and complex characters where there is no black and white come the end. It's almost a paraphrase of the title and that's because it's a very cleverly crafted plot, something I've not read the like of before. She has such a beautiful, infectious smile; her eyes shine with humour and kindness; her skin is lightly freckled and smooth.
