Today I am reviewing The Couple at Causeway Cottage by Diane Jeffrey, published by HQ Digital.


Kat and Mark move to an island off the Northern Irish coast for a new beginning. Far away from their frantic life in London, it’s the perfect place to bring up the family they’re longing to start.

But as soon as they arrive, cracks begin to appear in their marriage. Mark is still texting his ex-wife. Kat is lying about a new friendship. And one of them is keeping an explosive secret about the past.

The couple in Causeway Cottage are hiding something – and the truth can be deadly…

“New start…Old secrets…”

Ooh this is a deliciously wicked and dark read that I just devoured. My second book from Jeffrey didn’t disappointed and it had me super glued to my kindle unable to turn the pages fast enough!

Right from the outset there is a foreboding vibe of what’s to come, but as the story progresses it turns very sinister. I was immediately pulled into the story where thoughts of no matter where you go, you can never out run your secrets played around in my mind and there are some doozies in this story!

Fraught with so much tension and suspense the anticipation at times had me on the edge of my seat and my heart pounding! When is all is revealed it is done so in spectacular fashion. Jeffrey is definitely a master of leading you down one path only to pull the rug out from underneath you! I was definitely not expecting that outcome!

All round this is another fantastic read with great plot twists, strong characters and is a perfectly written piece of work that showcases Jeffrey’s talent and I can’t wait to read what she comes up with for us next.

Thank you to Diane Jeffrey for my gifted copy of The Couple at Causeway Cottage, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
