The following review has been posted on Amazon UK here & US and Goodreads
I realised what an excellent writer Amanda Jennings is within the first few chapters of this book. This writer knows her craft. This is the first book I've read by the author and it certainly won't be the last. In Her Wake is such a richly descriptive and psychologically chilling read that kept me enthralled until the very end.
There are many different parts and twists to the story of Bella, the protagonist, finding out who she really is and such a variety of emotions revealed by the people who have really loved her, or have just been there at some point in her life. All the facets of each character revealed bit by bit, good or bad. Who are they, who were they? Why did they act the way they did and what actually did happen? We, the readers are drawn into the story very cleverly as each new detail is revealed - or is it? And the book is mostly set in the beautiful St Ives, Cornwall. What's not to like?
