From Amazon:
Summer's ending, Evie's stepfather is finally home from the Second World War, and Evie is tired of her glamorous mother treating her like a little girl. Then a mysterious stranger appears; a handsome ex-GI who served with Evie's stepfather. Slowly, Evie realizes that she is falling in love with him - but he has dark secrets, and a strange control over her parents. When a sudden tragedy occurs, Evie's world is shattered. Torn between her family and the man she loves, Evie must betray someone. The question is... who?

I can't wait to read this book! It's published here in July, and is going to have a retro dust-jacket over the paperback, which sounds very cool. I've heard good things about it, and I know it won an award in the US, which makes me even more excited. If you've already read it, what did you think?

This sounds reallt cool and I like the idea of the duct-cover paperback. We don't get many of them!

Read this and reviewed it on my blog! (If, uh, you can find it; I've yet to include a search device--will get on that.) It's pretty darn good, not the best, but intriguing and exciting nevertheless. Rather shocking, too. :)

Woah it's surprising how it took too long to be published in the UK. Tell me how it turns out okay.. I wanna know what you think.

I really liked this book. It had a very cool Hitchcock feel to it. Hope you enjoy it.

Actually I didn't really like this one much. It was okay, but not as great as I had expected. Though, I may have liked it more if it had been a paperback. I like the layout of this version of the cover.
