Dark is the Sky by Jessica Chambers

Twelve years earlier, Olivia and Joel Cameron invited the family to spend the weekend at their new country home. Olivia hoped to provide them all with a much-needed escape from their anxiety over the recession crippling the nation; instead, the visit ended in tragedy when Scott, Joel’s wild and outrageously sexy youngest brother, was found dead. The repercussions tore the family apart.

Now, Olivia’s sister Violet has persuaded her to host a reunion. She claims it’s time they finally put the past behind them and laid their ghosts to rest. However, some wounds run too deep to heal, and some secrets are too destructive to remain hidden. Still grieving for the man she loved, Violet is determined to uncover the truth behind his death—a truth she believes lies within her own family.

As the web of deceit and hostility begins to unravel, family ties are tested to the limit, and no one will emerge unscathed.

Jessica Chambers has been inventing stories even before she was old enough to hold a pen. She has a passion for writing contemporary novels packed with emotion, complex relationships and often a touch of mystery.

Visually impaired from birth, Jessica currently lives with her family and Staffordshire bull terrier in the English town of Windsor. In addition to devouring fiction of all genres, she loves watching TV quiz shows and admits to being extremely competitive when it comes to a game of Trivial Pursuit.

Her latest book is Dark is the Sky.

My Review:

Jessica Chambers pulls you right into the inner parts of a dysfunctional family. We begin with Olivia overhearing what she thinks is her husband having an affair....and the beginning of a three day visit from the core of her husbands family. It has been 12 years since that New Year's reunion and the family is as pulled apart as it was then, if not more so.
We are reunited with Olivia's Sister Violet, and her husband Joel, and daughter Lottie. Violet has convinced her sister to bring the Cameron Family together, for what purpose we find out later! Even though this family has seemed to move on from the events that happened on that Summer weekend, things have never been the same.
This book will hold you until the end, and you will never guess how it all ends!

I received this book from the Author Jessica Chambers, and was not required to give a positive review.
