screen-shot-2017-02-20-at-6-18-39-pmThe Girl in the Red Coat by Kate Hamer was a book I had been eagerly anticipating; in an effort to beat my backlist and after several of my book blogging friends (namely, my good friend Janel at Keeper of Pages) sang the praises of this book, I decided to move this one to the top of my TBR pile.

When Joe Lynch sees his wife going into a hotel during the middle of the afternoon, his curiosity gets the best of him and he follows her in. After seeing her in an altercation with a family friend, Ben, he comes to her defence and ends up taking part in a brawl.
