The English Boys
Daniel Richardson and his best friend, Hugh Ashley-Hunt, both rising British actors, are in love with the same woman, the free-spirited Tamsyn Burke. Reluctantly, Daniel steps aside when Tamsyn decides to marry Hugh. Shortly before the wedding, however, she's murdered, and suspicion falls on the family, friends, and associates present.
Motivated by both Hugh's grief and his own, Daniel joins forces with Tamsyn's younger sister, Carey, to find out who killed her. In the process of digging into Tamsyn's past, Daniel tries to discover what secret she was hiding, and why someone close to her might want to silence her forever.
Julia Thomas’s debut novel is a murder-mystery that is set in England and follows Daniel, an actor who becomes swept up in the murder of his best friends bride right before their wedding. Although this story is told through multiple points of view, it is mainly told through the eyes of Daniel as he embarks on a mission to prove his innocence.
I love a great murder/mystery with a twist and I adored this story. Julia breathes life into each of the characters and transports you into their world of lies, deceit, trauma and ultimately of love, self discovery and forgiveness. This is one of those great books that reminds you, you never truly know anyone or what they are capable of. Easy book to recommend for those that love a great mystery.
