Somewhere beyond the Sea by Amanda James

"When love begins with a lie, where will it end? 

Doctor Tristan Ainsworth has returned with his family to the idyllic Cornish village close to where he grew up. The past has taught him some hard lessons, but he’ll do anything to make his wife happy – so what’s making her so withdrawn? 

Karen Ainsworth daren’t reveal her true feelings, but knows her husband has put up with her moods for too long. A chance to use her extraordinary singing voice may set her free, so why shouldn’t she take it? Surely her past can’t hurt her now? 

As a tide of blackmail and betrayal is unleashed to threaten the foundations of their marriage, Karen and Tristan face a difficult question. Is their love strong enough to face the truth when the truth might cost them everything?"

Another ChocLit beauty.  

This book contains snippets of the past, among the chapters of the present, and with each snippet the reader comes closer to learning the truth.

The pace of this book is perfect, and keeps you guessing until just over half way through the book.  The remainder of the book follows Tristan and Karen in the "aftermath" as they deal with the truth.  You'll have to read the book to see whether life will ever be the same again for them.....

Somewhere Beyond the Sea covers abuse, heartbreak, revenge, unconditional love and friendship.  The descriptions of Cornwall are beautiful, and the emotions are captured extremely well.
