I just finished reading “Never Coming Home” by Hannah Mary McKinnon. Let me tell you…It is a doozy of abook.


I am so happy I read this book. I chose it because I like the author, but I have to say that this is my favourite book by her so far. It was so different from anything I have ever read. Why? Because it is written from the point of view of the bad guy. The reader gets an intimate look inside the main villian in the story and the way it is written, makes the reading riveting and so exciting.


The story centers around a charmer who marries a rich young women with the sole purpose of defrauding her. He thinks he has gotten away with the perfect crime…only to find out that someone knows what he did. Going between the present and the past, we learn why the main character became so villainous, but we also learn of his tender side, which made me very conflicted in my attitude towards the main character.
What follows is a cat-and-mouse chase where nothing is as it seems, and the reader is kept guessing.


There was a consistent pace in the action and there was alway something interesting going on. Most of the questions I had were answered at the end except for one…What happened to the dog? I loved the dog…I was rooting for the dog.


An absolutely wonderful surprise of a novel that I am so glad I read and would recommend as anyone’s next read. Did I mention it was funny too…Like I said, very well written. Congratulations to the author. A must read for anyone who likes domestic thrillers.
Happy Reading!
