After the Crash by Emma Davies #BookReview #AfterTheCrash #Contemporary #NetGalley @EmDaviesAuthor @Bookouture #onceuponatimebookblog

Today I am reviewing After The Crash by Emma Davies. This was released on the 16th of March, published by Bookouture.

Book Blurb

He helped you move on… Until you discovered what he did.

Louisa Adams has done her best to hold herself together in the years since she lost her husband in a car accident. But each morning she wakes up alone is more painful than the last. She hopes moving into the crumbling seaside guest house her daughter just bought in Devon will help put what’s left of her broken family back together…

There, Louisa is offered a final chance to save her career by writing an article on a local sand artist, Isaac. Except, when he turns to greet her – tall, handsome and weather-worn – something about him feels disturbingly familiar. Why, when he looks into her eyes, does she feel like he knows exactly who she is and everything she’s been through?

As they explore the rugged coastline’s hidden coves together – living and laughing like she never thought she would again – Louisa is fascinated by this man who creates beautiful sculptures on the shoreline, but deep down she knows he’s keeping a secret from her. The discovery of a charcoal scribble in one of his sketchbooks linking him to the death of her husband, confirms her deepest fear. Is she ready for what he will tell her, and will letting him in rip her family and her heart apart all over again?

A heartbreaking, page-turning and completely unforgettable family drama you will read in one sitting. Perfect for anyone who loves Amanda Prowse, Kerry Fisher and Jodi Picoult.

Emma Davies has done it again and completely blown me away with this book. I am still thinking about about it long after having finished reading it, which is always the case when I read anything by this extremely talented author.

There are not many authors that can get me to read anything other than my beloved psychological thrillers, but Emma Davies is one of these authors. Since being exposed to her work last year, each book I have read from her is just another to add to my favourites and After the Crash is no exception.

Be prepared to be completely gripped and unable to tear yourself away from this one and have the tissues handy. I was up for a good cry and Emma Davies gave this to me. I was so invested in the story and its lead Louise, that it made me feel like I was also part of it experiencing it all with her.

After the Crash, is an emotionally charged read that has been beautifully written and will pull on your heartstrings. It definitely had me under its spell from start to finish. Another wonderful read from Emma Davies which I can’t recommend highly enough.

Thank you to Emma Davies, Bookouture and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of After the Crash, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

This review will be added to, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Amazon Australia & Amazon US. I will also add to NetGalley, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play and Barnes & Noble if available.
