I Could be You by Sheila Bugler grabs the reader from the opening pages – a dead woman and a missing child! From this point on the twists keep coming – just when I thought I knew something, the plot takes a turn in a totally different direction.
Dee, the character we follow in the present day, used to be a top journalist but then various events, including the breakdown of her marriage and her mother’s death, cause her to become something of a recluse.
However, she opens up a little to her tenant Katie and falls in love with Katie’s young son Jake. After finding the dead woman, who has clearly been the victim of a deliberate hit and run, Dee uses her journalistic skills to try to track down Jake, discovering along the waythat everything she thought she knew about her friend proves wrong.
Interspersed with the present day theme are flashbacks to another character. I won’t say more as I don’t want to include spoilers, but suffice it to say I found it hard to put the book down! Thank you to NetGalley, Sheila Bugler and Canelo for allowing me an advance copy.
