The Last Holiday : A completely unputdownable psychological
Annie, Charlotte& Stella are friends on holiday together with their spouses and children. When Annie turns up dead, a DCI (not really sure what her name is) steps in to investigate. Love was not an active verb in my family or in my life. There were few demonstrations, few hugs and embraces, and few declarations among us about love. I was a full-grown adult who had been married, a father, and divorced before I consciously put “I love you” into conversations with my mother, before I made sure I got a hug from her and gave her a big hug each time we met. I can’t remember ever hearing “I love you” pass between the generations of Scotts that preceded me. Or recall with any clarity hearing those words from them to me or being inspired to say those words to them. Yet I can’t imagine there being more warmth and laughter shared with genuine empathy and respect and consideration and . . . but not affection. Our codes and slangThey are a group of friends and they’ve been friends for a long time. They’re taking a camping trip- even though there are plenty of issues amongst them to cause controversy. Investigators turn up a lot of these same secrets- and more, including an attempted suicide. Thinking that the two are related they accuse her of murder- after all she tried to kill herself to be with her husband why wouldn’t she kill someone else? Turns out, even more secrets come out and now a child goes missing. OMFG I did NOT see this ending coming!… WOW… A wild ride of twists and turns!… I finished this in two sittings, it was a definite could not put down!… You will NOT expect this ending and you will not want to put this one down!’ Goodreads reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The connection between Gil Scott-Heron and Stevie Wonder seems obvious to me now, though I may not have made it before reading this book.I had a little bit of a hard time following this at first but once I got the hang of it the flow was better. There’s just so many perspectives and it flips between past and present a lot. Plus, there are a couple different issues that come to light. The biggest twist right at the end, truly didn’t see it coming. How far will we go to keep our secrets hidden? And when does being close to someone start becoming dangerous…?
