Neve Chambers’ life is crumbling around her. Her fiancée recently cleared his things out of the London flat they shared, the café that she poured her heart, soul and savings into is failing… badly, and her drinking is one hangover away from being problematic.
As she battles hungover mornings and piles of bills, she finds herself regretting her bid to escape village life for the allure of the big city.
But all that changes when she hears that her teenage sweetheart, Jamie, has disappeared from the village of her childhood. With nothing to lose, she decides it’s time to return and join the search party.
Except the village is home to memories Neve would rather forget. She hasn’t been back since that winter’s night when her friend, Chloe, vanished in a suspiciously similar way to Jamie.
As she negotiates her return to the village, she’s faced with the guilt of Chloe’s family, and the friends who she abandoned that night, leaving them to pick up the pieces.
Some say Chloe left the country. Some say she was murdered by her mother. Only Neve knows the truth.
