After all, the brightest smile can hide the darkest secret.
But wouldn't you pay any price to have a glorious place like this?

Martha Winter's family is finally coming home.

Review: When I finished reading Harriet Evan's truly gripping A Place For Us part one I was begging for part two. I started reading part two on my plane from New York to Florida, it is safe to say I didn't get any reading done whilst I was in Florida. Have you seen the amount of theme parks there are?

Anyway, I also kind of lost my reading mojo, now I have it back and as I had charged my lovely Kobo I dived back into the heart of the action at Winterfold. MY OH MY! What a treat and I can see why it has been split into parts. For the reader it has us constantly engaged and wanting to know more. Just like in part one you are getting each characters point of view or their story. Some in present, some in past. Throughout part one and in some of part two I had particular thoughts of certain characters including that of Daisy and as I read on I felt guilty and thought differently.

I love stories that challenge you as a reader and I love it when you think certain things and you are sometimes proved right and wrong. I think if I had read this as a full on book I would have stayed up all night to complete it. So in a way for my own sanity it is probably best I am reading these in parts haha!. Plus I would have needed a heck of a lot of coffee to function.

As I type this I have been accepted for part three so that means my lunch break will be back with Winterfold.  Part two saw the discovery of the secrets but how will the family cope.
I have really enjoyed reading these parts and I will be sad to see them go...
