Four Steps
This is a truly wonderful book and I can’t quite believe it’s a first novel. The writing is so accomplished and I could not put it down. The story of Lori and Alex, who meet in a bothy in the Scottish Highlands while out walking the mountains, is part heart-achingly beautiful romance, part thriller. I loved both of the main characters and so wanted them to become a couple. Lori is getting over a failed romance with a control freak boyfriend and Alex is finally getting over a breakup. Both have complex background stories and we slowly find out exactly what that means to the present and to their future together. Their family backgrounds have huge implications for them and how their relationship develops. The romance element was tender and loving and drew me in. These two were so meant for each other and I didn’t want anyone or anything to get in the way. The thriller part of the story was at times violent and scary and the tension was palpable. I can’t recommend this novel highly enough and I hope Wendy Hudson has another one on the go for next year.
I was given this ARC free by Ylva Publishing in return for an honest review.
