Hélene Fermont writes character-driven psychological crime fiction with a Scandi Noir flavour. Known for her explosive, pacy narrative and storylines, she has published three novels – Because of You, We Never Said Goodbye
This isn’t normally the book I would have picked up but then description of it was just too compelling not to try.
I was not in the least disappointed by this book as it had everything that I could have hoped for.
The characters were well designed and were not all likeable like in real life.
I felt sorry for louise as she seemed to be the truly good person that tried to do what she could and she ended up getting screwed around by her ex very badly.
The ending was fun and I really loved how much I wanted to see what happened to the characters in the end.
