Publisher's Summary

He promised to love her until her dying day….

When Becca’s first love shows up on her social media feed, she can’t help but smile fondly. Once upon a time Connor was the love of her life, and though it was over 10 years ago, he’s always held a place in her heart.

Then he sends her a message. He sounds happy - still kind and funny, still living across the world in Australia. But he wants to know everything about her life now. How can Becca tell him the truth? About her workaholic husband, her stressful job, and the challenges of caring for her elderly father and her longed-for, adorable, but exhausting three-year-old daughter, Mia?

Becca hesitates, knowing she shouldn’t even reply. But Connor lives on the other side of the world. Just how dangerous can becoming friends again be?

It feels harmless. Until Mia gets sick - in a way that no one can explain. And it starts to become clear - someone will do absolutely anything to make sure Becca never escapes her past....

good not great

I will say this story has very little to do with an ex boyfriend and is mostly just about being a mom. It did keep me interested but at some points I felt like I just wanted to skip forward because it went on an on without anything happening. I'm still glad I read it and enjoyed it.

What was this?

I finally had to just turn it off....I don’t know what the story was about. Just seemed like lots of talking.

Oh dear

I have almost all of Rona Halsall's books and this is nothing like any of them. Narrator sounded very bored, but besides that, the story wasn't great. I was actually going to send it back several times but kept thinking something very dramatic must be coming soon. It doesnt.

painfully obvious

The lead female in this book is a bit of an idiot. I don't imagine anyone in her situation would behave the way she did. I'm sorry I didn't return it. I kept hoping it would get better....it didn't.

Not for me

The book just seemed to be a huge emotional wrangle of a woman feeling guilty of an old love affair.
It was a drain to listen to and the Narrator didn't help by making every sentence into a mournful sigh. The other subject the book covered was only mildly interesting but not plausible. Ohh boo hoo!

Long winded twists and turns

The title of the book does not really match the content. I found the characters empty and the story just seemed like forced twists and too many red herrings to make it enjoyable.
