About this deal

As a reader you are equally excited and intrigued to read either story which makes the book unputdownable. It is a tightly written book where words are not wasted and you are left anxiously waiting to find out what happens next.

Coming to Find You is brilliantly structured because just when you feel you can’t bear the tension of Nancy’s first person, intimately told, story any longer, there is respite. Also there is so many secrets she talks about and in the second pov you find some out, and therefore when the first pov finds it out, its not a shock, you already know. I’ve read 5 out of 7 books by this author which were My Husband’s Wife (‘16 - Read ‘21 - 4 Stars), Dead Ex ('18 - Read '20 - 4 Stars), I Made A Mistake ('20 - 4. The modern day thriller was combined expertly with a moving and suspenseful story of life during WWII.I love Jane Corry's books and really enjoyed this one with a dual timeline of the present story and the past. After tragedy that happens to Nancy’s family she decides to hide in her grandmothers house Tall Chimneys unfortunately someone finds out where she is and Martin her stepbrother starts to message her she doesn’t feel safe anymore, there is so much intrigue and tension and you just hope that everything works out happy for her. the story unfolded in both eras at the same time, flitting seamlessly between them, bring together the characters from both eras and their interrelationships.

It sounds like it's going to be a case of cat and mouse, of being unable to run away from your life and the lies you've told.There is a dual timeline in the book, one for Nancy who is hiding away from a family tragedy, the other set in 1941, Nancy's grandmother Elizabeth who took in some evacuees from London to keep them safe from the bombings. It has all the delightful twists and turns to keep you guessing, but not quite with its usual thrill. It doesn't lower my rating or enjoyment of the book at all but it stands out as a bit of an annoying device. She creates characters who are thoroughly believable and whose stories the readers are wholly invested in.

Corry highlights the wartime thought that people didn’t know what the future held, so they grabbed opportunities that they normally wouldn’t have so rashly taken and reminds us that nobody was the same after the wartime experience.

Fast forward to Nancy’s stepbrother Martin being convicted for the murder of Nancy’s mother and her stepfather, with Nancy herself facing a “silent sentence“. Nancy flees London after her Stepbrother Martin murders and sentenced a life in prison after murdering her parents. I absolutely loved the 1941 timeline, reading about the evacuee girls, life during the war and the heartache at Elizabeth’s only child going off to fight the German’s.
