A devilish psychological thriller from the widely loved GJ Minett, for fans of The Girl Before and Lie with Me.
You’d do anything for the one that got away . . . wouldn’t you?
When Billy Orr returns home to spend time with his dying sister, he bumps into his ex-girlfriend Aimi, the love of his life. He might not have seen her in eleven years, but Billy’s never forgotten her. He’d do anything for her then, and he’d do anything for her now.
When Aimi tells him that she wants to escape her abusive husband, Billy agrees to help her fake her own death. But is she still the Aimi that Billy remembers from all those years ago?
Once Aimi disappears, Billy has to face the possibility that perhaps she had different reasons for disappearing – reasons that might be more dangerous than she’s led him to believe . . .
Sometimes trusting the one you love is the wrong thing to do.
I’ve heard lots of great things about this authors books so couldn’t put off reading one any longer.
This is one of those stories that really intrigued me and kept me turning the pages.
I really liked Mia, Billy’s sister. She has been part mother and sister to him for a lot of years and constantly worries about him. Even though Billy loves and respects his sister, he is determined to take control of his life and live it his way. I think bumping into Aimi makes him even more determined. Instead of just existing. Aimi seems to waken him from inside.
Billy is a bit of an odd ball. He has been through a rough time and I think meeting Aimi gives him purpose in life and even though he knows he probably shouldn’t get involved, he likes her to much to say no. I have to admit to being concerned and wishing he would take his sister’s advice though.
There really isn’t much more I can say about the story as to do so would give to much away. What I will say though is, Anything For Her is a story full of deceit with a very unexpected outcome. Very cleverly written so I had no idea what was in store for me and I have to say I just loved the ending. Will certainly be reading more of the authors books.
My thanks to Emily at Bonnier Zaffre for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
