First line of the book.

First line from the prologue: The wind flicks wet hair across her face, and she screws up her eyes against the rain.

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.

A tragic accident. It all happened so quickly. She couldn’t have prevented it. Could she?

In a split second, Jenna Gray’s world descends into a nightmare. Her only hope of moving on is to walk away from everything she knows to start afresh. Desperate to escape, Jenna moves to a remote cottage on the Welsh coast, but she is haunted by her fears, her grief and her memories of a cruel November night that changed her life forever.

Slowly, Jenna begins to glimpse the potential for happiness in her future. But her past is about to catch up with her, and the consequences will be devastating . . .

Introduce the main character using only three words.

Jenna is a talented artist who lacks self-esteem and has suffered physical and psychological abuse.

Delightful design (add the cover image of the book).

Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)

Readers who enjoy crime fiction (there’s a crime and some police procedural) and  family drama (be warned it includes an accurate and realistic portrayal of abuse), with a touch of romance and lots of suspense. It’s well-written and character-driven. There are switching viewpoints which add more depth to the story. Especially for readers who like intense and moving novels.

Your favourite line/scene.

I read the paperback version. Here’s a photograph of a scene which is vital to the suspense element in the novel:
