Coming To Find You by Jane Corry
My rating: 4/5
Publisher: Penguin
Publication date: 22nd June 2023
You can run away from your life.
But you can't run away from murder.

When her family tragedy is splashed across the newspapers, Nancy decides to disappear. Her grandmother's beautiful Regency house in a quiet seaside village seems like the safest place to hide. But the old house has its own secrets and a chilling wartime legacy...

Now someone knows the truth about the night Nancy's mother and stepfather were murdered. Someone knows where to find her. And they have nothing to lose...

So what really happened that night? And how far will she go to keep it hidden?

I absolutely love Jane Corry's books so I couldn't wait to get stuck into Coming To Find You.

This novel is told from the points of view of Nancy whose stepbrother Martin has just been imprisoned for murdering her mother and stepfather (Martin's father). Nancy decides to lay low after the trial to avoid the media circus and goes back to her family home in Devon, Tall Chimneys, which was previously a boarding house or B&B. 

We also flit back to the story of Nancy's grandmother Adeline and her best friend Elizabeth whose son was sent to the army when he was seventeen. Elizabeth previously owned Tall Chimneys and passed it to Adeline. The women then enlist into the 'secret army'. As I am not a historical fiction reader usually, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed these chapters.

There are a lot of secrets being kept in both stories and it all ties together beautifully. What I love about Corry's novels is the setting. I can always picture myself there, especially the beachy scenes in this one. I also love the slight peppering of information, urging you to keep reading because the truth is all about to come out. I definitely recommend Jane Corry's novels if you haven't already read any!
