Book Review & #Giveaway: DISCLAIMER BY RENEE KNIGHT (Mystery) #SummerSix

When an intriguing novel appears on Catherine's bedside table, she curls up and begins to read.

But as she turns the pages, she is horrified to realise she is a key character, a main player.

This story will reveal her darkest secret.

A secret she thought no one else knew ......

Published:  April 2015
Publisher:  Black Swan

She thought she had laid it to rest.
That it was finished.
But now it has resurfaced.
In her bedroom.
In her head.

Something happened to Catherine 20 years ago that she wasn't brave enough to tell her husband about.  But when a book turns up that appears to tell the world her secret her life is turned upside down as she tries to discover who wrote the story and why.  Why now?  What purpose would it serve?

Some of the chapters are narrated by a widower, an ex-teacher who, at first seems reliable.  The other chapters follow Catherine as she struggles to make sense of it all, she's a very successful documentary film-maker who is very persuasive at teasing the truth out of people, it's what she's good at.  But when it comes to her own truths she doesn't want them revealed to anyone.

This is a story about relationships and about seeing what we want to see, believing what we want to believe.

This was a well-paced, clever and unique story line, the slow unravelling of the truth and unexpected plot twists all combined to make a great read!
