Caz Tallis has a great life living in her dream flat in London and loving her job making and restoring rocking horses. So when a handsome stranger turns up on her balcony she is surprised to say the least. Particularly when the stranger turns out to be rock star Ric Kealey – who died three years ago when he was accused of the murder of his bandmate. After Ric’s ‘death’ the murder investigation was closed. But now Ric wants to prove his innocence, and Caz gets drawn into helping him.
Cas finds herself drawn to Ric, but as their enquiries progress, she starts to wonder how much she really knows him – and suddenly she doesn’t know what the truth is, or who she can trust…
This was a great story, combining an intriguing mystery with a budding romance. The story unfolded at exactly the right pace, and I genuinely had no idea how it would end up. I was able to empathise with Caz’s feelings towards Ric – he was charismatic and attractive, but could also be selfish and irritating.
The story is narrated by Caz, and she’s a great character – easy to identify with, and with a great sense of humour. The story twists and turns as she tries to sort out the lies from the truth.
There are a few other characters who flesh out the story – Ric’s solictor and manager Phil, who may or may not be trustworthy; his outrageous and unpredictable former bandmate Jeff Pike; Caz’s best friend James; and Phil’s girlfriend Emma.
Overall, this is a very entertaining and fun read, with a genuinely unpredictable ending – I would certainly recommend it, and hope to read more by this author.
