Come Back For Me – Heidi Perks

Blog tour organised by Rachel Kennedy from Arrow Publishing – Thank you Rachel for inviting me to read and review this book – Come Back For Me.


A tiny island community is stunned by the discovery of a long-buried body.

For Stella Harvey the news is doubly shocking. The body has been found in the garden of her childhood home – the home her family fled without explanation twenty-five years ago.

Now, questioning her past and desperate to unearth the truth, Stella returns to the isolated island. But she quickly finds that the community she left isn’t as welcoming as she remembers – and that people in it will go to any length to protect their secrets.

One thing rings true…
You can’t bury the truth forever.

My Review:

Stella Harvey’s family live on an isolated Island, called Evergreen. Only accessible by Ferry – that her dad runs daily to and from the island. They live a happy life, as far as Stella is concerned, thats how she remembers her childhood, until one day they leave the island, never to return. She’s told it was because her Dad got a new job, and yet, everything seems different. Her older sister Bonnie is happy they left, she hated being there. Danny her brother soon leaves home and her parents separate.

Everything she thought she knew and loved has gone, she writes to her best friend, but never hears back and her, her Mum seems sad to have left and yet understands the they needed to.

Then twenty-five years later and Evergreen is on the news, a body has been found, right by Stella’s old house and she decides to return, but no one welcomes her, no friendly faces are pleased to see her. Her sister is angry she’s gone there. By this time Stella and Bonnie haven’t seen Danny for over 20 years and their Mum has died. Their dad has dementia and no one knows the answers to all the questions she has.

No one on the island wants to speak to her to answer any of her questions about why they left. So many secrets and no answers, leaves Stella trying to uncover the truths.

But perhaps, some truths are left unsaid and kept just as they are, it up to Stella to decide this time, if that’s the best way to keep them unsaid or left the truth hurt her family even more.

A great thriller that will keep this page-turner going over in your mind long after you’ve finished reading it. With characters that have to justify their actions and hide the truth, for fear of revealing even more secrets and the descriptions of wind swept cliffs and scenery that leave you alsmost able to smell the sea air. Yet again Heidi Perks has a produced a truly gripping read in Come Back For Me.
