The Bones of You Summary

The Bones of You by Debbie Howells

A Richard and Judy Book Club bestseller, Debbie Howells' The Bones of You is a gripping psychological thriller about the dark side of suburban England.

I have a gardener's inherent belief in the natural order of things. Soft-petalled flowers that go to seed. The resolute passage of the seasons. Swallows that fly thousands of miles to follow the eternal summer.

Children who don't die before their parents.

A community in shock

When eighteen-year-old Rosie Anderson disappears, the idyllic village where she lived will never be the same again. Local gardener Kate is struck with guilt. She'd come to know Rosie well, and thought she understood her - perhaps better even than Rosie's own mother.

A family torn apart

Rosie was beautiful, kind and gentle. She came from a loving family and she had her whole life ahead of her. Who could possibly want to harm her? And why?

A keeper of secrets

Kate is convinced the police are missing something. She's certain that someone in the village knows more than they're letting on. As the investigation deepens, so does Kate's obsession with solving the mystery of what happened to Rosie.

The Bones of You Reviews

The Bones of You is a brilliantly twisty read that delves deep into the dark heart of the seemingly perfect family. Recommended. * Tammy Cohen *
I couldn't stop reading this from the moment I picked it up. An intelligent thriller which looks behind the perfect facade of village life to reveal the dark secrets within. Written with heart and real depth, and with some real hand-over-mouth moments - I was gasping in surprise in a cafe! This is going to be a huge hit, and deservedly so. * Rachael Lucas, author of Sealed With A Kiss and Coming Up Roses *
