The Heatwave by @TheVenomousPen

By Pamelascott

One summer. One stranger. One killer...

The Heatwave by @TheVenomousPen Two bad things happened that summer: A stranger arrived. And the first girl disappeared.

In the wake of the crime that rocked her community, Felicity fled, knowing more than she let on.

But sixteen years later, her new life is shattered by the news that a second girl has gone missing in her hometown.

Now Felicity must go back, to face the truth about what happened all those years ago.

Only she holds the answers - and they're more shocking than anyone could imagine.

The heatwave is back. And so is the killer.

I've read other books by the author and have really enjoyed them, so I've been looking forward to reading this. The premise sounded like something I'd really enjoy. The book moves between the past and present. This is my favourite structure for a novel, and it works really well here to build suspense and intrigue and show how events are linked. There are also plenty of twists and turns which delighted me. I was confused, suspected everyone and had no idea what the truth was. I love those kind of books. I had no idea how it was going to play out and the ending stunned me. This is sort of brilliant!
