Description

I loved Vera and Jessica and how quickly they rallied round Nancy when she moved away from London and didn't judge her despite the press activity. She simply wants to live her life away from reporters interested in her mother’s death and to stop contact with her obsessive stepbrother.

This often hair-raising experience helped inspire her Sunday Times -bestselling psychological dramas, of which she has now sold over a million copies worldwide. Tall Chimneys the family home and Sidmouth are so beautifully portrayed, I felt like I had been to visit them personally. Coming To Find You is set in a beautiful coastal regency house set in seaside village in Devon (hence the beautiful cover). This is a gripping, atmospheric plot told in two time frames, with plenty of twists and turns to keep you turning the pages.Grief-stricken, Nancy flees to the Cornish seaside, to her grandmother's secluded inn, Tall Chimneys, to escape the media circus and scrutiny.

It has well developed characters and the author has cleverly written this and at first I thought that the two stories wouldn’t go together but it blended perfectly.

As a reader you are equally excited and intrigued to read either story which makes the book unputdownable. While she is there she learns of two children who lived there during the war and begins to investigate. To escape the media and peering eyes she unlocked Tall Chimneys, her grandmother's home which was bequeathed to Nancy. This writing style jumps around a lot so its hard to keep up with what's going on, you just have to really pay attention lol. I don’t feel it’s a story you’d want to rush, the characters deserved my time and that’s what I gave them.

Whilst I enjoyed both timelines it was Elizabeth’s wartime story from 1941 that I found the most compelling. It doesn't lower my rating or enjoyment of the book at all but it stands out as a bit of an annoying device. We had her not so nice husband, her son who is off to war , evacuated children with their teacher and the paying guests. Coming to Find You is brilliantly structured because just when you feel you can’t bear the tension of Nancy’s first person, intimately told, story any longer, there is respite. At first when the story went into the past to the time of the war, I wasn’t sure how it would connect with the story of Nancy, who is reeling from the murder of her mother and step dad, but the two stories collided wonderfully and it quickly made sense why we were told about the past and I thought it was really clever.Jane was a tutor in creative writing at Oxford University; an RLF Fellow at Exeter University; and is a regular contributor to the Daily Telegraph and My Weekly magazine. I loved the way morality is presented because here we have characters we should abhor as killers and liars, and yet they are people the author makes us care about.
