Ten Thoughts While Reading Come Back For Me by Heidi Perks

Arrow Publishing sent me a free review copy of Come Back For Me by Heidi Perks ahead of the blog tour.

Once I started reading it, I couldn't put Come Back For Me by Heidi Perks down. It's a story packed with mysteries and secrets and lies, all wrapped up in an increasingly tense community. A Compelling thriller that I couldn't put down.

A shocking discovery.
An island wrapped in secrets.

A tiny island community is stunned by the discovery of a long-buried body.

For Stella Harvey the news is doubly shocking. The body has been found in the garden of her childhood home - the home her family fled without explanation twenty-five years ago.

Now, questioning her past and desperate to unearth the truth, Stella returns to the isolated island. But she quickly finds that the community she left isn’t as welcoming as she remembers – and that people in it will go to any length to protect their secrets.

One thing rings true…
You can’t bury the truth forever.

Ten Thoughts While Reading Come Back For Me by Heidi Perks
This was supposed to be a Character Freebie, but I decided instead to do ten thoughts I had while reading Come Back For Me by Heidi Parks. Because I had A LOT of thoughts while I was reading, and it was a book that kept surprising me
  1. This cover is gorgeous, I love the shades and the contrast, the way the red pops. Interesting tag line too We all have something to hide.
  2. A MAP! There is a map! I love maps! Cute island. I think I'd like to live on an island, although this one is SMALL.
  3. Stella is very smart, isn't she? But I wonder what her motives are and what she's hiding, why she made such a drastic change in her life.
  4. Oooh here come the secrets and lies! I am so unsure of who to trust right now, I love an unreliable narrator, and Stella's compartmentalising, and her age at the time, means she is definitely unreliable.
  5. OK so maybe this island isn't as nice as I thought? I think I'd still like to visit though, it sounds a wee bit idyllic, despite the body.
  6. I did NOT see that coming! Poor Stella, she must be heart broken. But now who is it..? Honestly thought that's who it was.
  7. OK so I kind of saw that one coming, especially with the focus the narrative was taking. But still. A wee bit shocked at the reveal.
  8. I don't believe this is the truth, I think there are still lots of secrets and lies and things that need to come to light.
  9. WELL I certainly had suspicions but I wasn't expecting that! What a twist.
  10. Right, what other books has this author written? I need them now!

  6. Oooh I like the idea of this post! It's a cool way to show exactly what you were thinking of a book without having to compile it all into a structured review :)

  7. Oooo I didn't expect a map! I love an unreliable narrator too, as long as it's not because they're an alcoholic.

  8. Yess, can’t beat a map, they’re the best!

  9. oh thats why i thought this book looked familar at work today ahha :) i liked this style of review :)

  10. This was fun to read. I like to see people's reactions as they read the book, and I feel like this gives me a better understanding on whether or not I want to read a book or not. This one sounds like something I would like.
