I love and have always loved reading. I usually read one at once but at times I will read two. I have a book end which states 'Caution! Bookworms bite when disturbed.

The Long Fall

The Long Fall - Julia Crouch

If you like a quick entertaining read The Long Fall is for you. Part of the novel is set in the 1980s when Emma's holiday in Greece goes horribly wrong. I quite liked her but certain things I didn't care for, mainly her attitude towards her parents.
The other half is set in modern day. Now known as Kate, and living in a completely different world from 30 years earlier she is horrified when a face from the past brings back the horror of that holiday.
I loved the descriptions of Greece, back packing was never for me but Julia Crouch showed why it was so popular amongst the younger generation.
I guessed fairly early on what was going to happen but still really enjoyed the book.

Thanks to the publisher and the author for the copy via NetGalley.
