The caption on the front cover of The Cliff House: – ‘Bad things happen in beautiful places’ really encaptures this story and what it’s all about.

I was swept away into a fictional word of beauty, riches, loss, possessiveness, deception, deceit, and addiction. Jennings walks you through jealousy and hatred as well as what it is to be thankful for the life you were given.

The majority of the story is told through the eyes of two teenager girls, one from a wealthy but broken family and the other from a poor but humble family. When Tamsyn and Edies worlds collide it brings with it false hope, love and disaster.

A brilliant plot, however original it may be, with in-depth characters and an enchanting world poisoned by lost faith, death and drugs.

If you enjoy a fast paced thriller or psychological thriller, this one is for you!

AJ.
