Review: Never Coming Home - Evonne Wareham

When Kaz Elmore is told her five-year-old daughter Jamie has died in a car crash, she struggles to accept that she’ll never see her little girl again. Then a stranger comes into her life offering the most dangerous substance in the world: hope. Devlin, a security consultant and witness to the terrible accident scene, inadvertently reveals that Kaz’s daughter might not have been the girl in the car after all. 


What if Jamie is still alive? With no evidence, the police aren’t interested, so Devlin and Kaz have little choice but to investigate themselves. Devlin never gets involved with a client. Never. But the more time he spends with Kaz, the more he desires her – and the more his carefully constructed ice-man persona starts to unravel . 


The desperate search for Jamie leads down dangerous paths – to a murderous acquaintance from Devlin’s dark past, and all across Europe, to Italy, where deadly secrets await. But as long as Kaz has hope, she can’t stop looking…

Genre: Romantic Suspense/thriller/mystery, Pages: 356, Published: March 7, 2012, Publisher: Choc Lit, Source: For review

My thoughts:
If this would have been just a thriller then perhaps not for me, even if the thrilling part was actually my fav (go figure), but anyway, it also had romance. Big yay.

The suspense part was very good, I kept asking why and how?? I thought I knew, I thought I could figure it out, but it made no sense. But even in this craziness in the end it all made sense. Some are just insane.

Kaz has gone through what no mother should have to go through, she has a lost a child. The Devlin comes along, mysterious and sexy Devlin. The sparks fly, but there is also something else. The big mystery of the book, is Jamie actually alive? And if so where?

Wareham does not make it easy for the reader. The question of Jamie hangs over us, then someone is after Devlin too, and why? The hunt takes us far and more questions show up. I do like a good mystery that I can't figure out.

With the suspense and mystery we got the romance. Two people falling for each other when they shouldn't. And some secrets cannot be shared.

Conclusion:
This one is for those who like suspense, thrillers and mysterious, but who also want a bit of romance and softer tones.

  3. Stories about missing children are always so hard for me to read because it's such a tragic thing to happen, so I'm glad this one has a hint of romance to help switch up the focus.

    1. I know :/ it was not the easiest subject and I kept thinking of why someone would have made the mum think the kid was dead. Horrid

  4. Thriller with romance? That rarely goes together. When it does, it usually takes a back seat to the romance, but that is okay with me in a book. Haven't heard of this one. It's going on the wishlist!

  14. Oh, as good as you make this one sound, I think the part about the heroine losing her child would be too difficult for me to read.

    1. Luckily is the wrong word to use, but still luckily for me it happened 6 months before so we did not have to be there during the hard months

  15. Any bit of romance in a story is a plus for me. Also I keep thinking that this storyline would make a pretty decent movie.

    1. A Thriller with a romantic base, yup it would be great

  16. This sure sounds exciting, especially if you cannot figure it out. But with a missing child, this is bound to be a bit too intense for me. Glad you enjoyed it though.
