My thoughts:

This was a really interesting thriller, with Suzy Q fleeing for her life and reinventing herself in a small town in Maine, before her past catches up with her.

There’s a lot happening when Luke and the bad guys roll into town. The pace switches from easy living and a happy life, into high octane nightmare of armed gangsters and terror.

I loved the Peters family, who basically adopt Julia when she arrives, a warm mix of slightly over the top Italian mama and a chilled out dad and they run a restaurant.

Thankfully there is a sequel, as the ending is left with lots of possibilities hanging.
