What happens when you fall in love with the wrong person?
The consequences threaten to be far-reaching and potentially deadly.
Bone Deep is a contemporary novel of sibling rivalry, love, betrayal and murder. It is a dual narrative, told in alternative chapters by Mac, a woman bent on keeping the secrets of the past from her only son, and the enigmatic Lucie, whose own past is something of a closed book. Their story is underpinned by the creaking presence of an abandoned water mill and haunted by the local legend of two long-dead sisters, themselves rivals in love and ready to point an accusing finger from the pages of history.
This is one of those slow burner books, the kind that start of nice and steady lulling you in and then picks up pace with each chapter, building the suspense and the tension as you go until it all comes to an almighty head.
Going into this book I wasn’t really sure what to really expect, here we have Mac a retired historian who is spending her time writing stories around local legends, and Lucie – with an ie much to Mac chagrin – who Mac has hired to help type up her book. Lucie it would appear has her secrets just as much as Mac does in this book and the story is told in their alternating points of view.
Una Mcdade, Emma Hartley-Miller really brought the characters to life for me in this tale, the old and the young and they were Scottish! That made this story all the more enjoyable to listen to. The audio was crisp and clear and the transition between characters flawless.
