Today is my stop on the blog tour for Anything for Her by Jack Jordan! 😊 I actually read this a while back so I’m basically just reposting my review. I want to take a minute to say how amazing is the new cover!!!!! 😍 It is utter perfection when you have read the book, and I’m thrilled that I get to be a part of this tour! Incidentally, you can catch up/follow the tour at all of these brilliant blogs below too so don’t miss out! 😉
And without further ado, here’s my review from 2015’s archives 😊
About the book: (via Amazon)
Sometimes the past comes back to haunt you.
Louise Leighton’s life has fallen apart, all because of one fateful night. Her husband is an adulterer, her sister is his mistress, and soon, Louise will lose everything she owns. But she never imagined she would lose her daughter.
Eighteen-year-old Brooke Leighton is missing. It’s up to Louise and the Metropolitan Police to find her. Has Brooke run away? Or has she been taken against her will? And can Louise aid the investigation without mentioning the night where all of her troubles began?
If she mentions that night, she will incriminate her daughter for heinous crimes. But if she doesn’t, she may never find Brooke; and if she has been abducted, the person who took her may come for Louise, too.
Sometimes the past comes back to kill you.
I started this last night and managed to read almost half of it before I succumbed to sleep! It pulls you in very quickly from the beginning as Louise’s husband admits he has been sleeping with her sister for nearly a year. Ah, hello?! If that doesn’t make you get up and leave your comfortable life, maybe throw in the fact that he’s a tax evader an the family is on the verge of losing everything for good measure, then you’ll surely run.
Louise flees to their country home (as one would!) to get away from everything that is going on in her life, leaving her husband and two children back in London while she attempts to come to terms with the fallout from the adultery.
Early on, we are told that Louise and her daughter Brooke harbour a secret that could bring them all down. We do not learn this secret until the last few action filled chapters. This suspense is what kept me reading. Morbid curiosity gnawed at me until I finally read what happened on that fateful night.
Moving to the country home is not without peril. Unsettling things start happening, and Louise is convinced someone knows their secret. Brooke also arrives at the house, but after a heated exchange during her stay, she ends up going back to the train station to get a train back to London.
Brooke never turns up in London.
From here on in, the book amps up the pace as we witness the unraveling of family life both in London and the Cotswolds. The police become involved by this stage and are investigating Brooke’s disappearance while Louise’s erratic behaviours raises other questions.
What is she hiding? Who is she protecting?
The ending of the book, for me, was quite unexpected. I won’t give anything away, sufficed to say, it’s not where I expected things to go.
