Hurry Home

Hurry Home was my first book by Canadian author Roz Nay … and it won’t be my last. This is one of those books where I don’t want to say too much about the plot because I’m afraid I’ll say too much and spoil it for other readers. What I can say is that this is one twisty, character-focused ride that leaves readers wondering what exactly is going on between estranged sisters Alex and Ruth who are each trying to keep their dark secrets hidden.

Told from the perspectives of both Alex and Ruth, this is a disturbing story about two sisters with a mysterious past which is slowly and tauntingly revealed to the reader. Normally, I’m not a slow burn kinda gal, but this time I was utterly hooked and eager to find out what exactly had transpired between the sisters to cause them to be so at odds. There are some predictable bits, but they are balanced with satisfying twists and well-drawn, yet unreliable, narrators that had me switching my allegiance between them, making me wonder which sister was telling the truth and which was lying.

Part domestic thriller, part slow-burn and definitely a character study in the connection between dysfunctional sisters, Hurry Home is a story about manipulation, dark family secrets you can’t outrun and lies, lies, lies. If you’re in the mood for a twisty read, you’ll want to get your hands on Hurry Home. Put it on hold at WPL now!
