Doesn’t every marriage have a dark side?

To the outside world Hannah married the perfect man. Behind the closed doors of their imposing home it’s a very different story. Nathan controls everything Hannah does. He chooses her clothes, checks her receipts, and keeps her passport locked away. But why does she let him?

Years before, in the midst of a relentless storm, the tragic events of one night changed everything. And Hannah has been living with the consequences ever since. Keeping Nathan happy. Doing as she’s told.

But the past is about to catch up with them.

Set against the unforgiving backdrop of a Cornish fishing port in the ‘90s, this is a devastating exploration of the power of coercive control in a marriage where nothing is quite as it seems…

So what do I write? Well, I love anything with a dark vein and secrets which affect families, and my books tend to fall into the psychological suspense category.
The Storm is out in July and, like my last two books – In Her Wake and The Cliff House – it is set in Cornwall where my heart truly lies! My mother’s side of the family is from Penzance and I have many blissful memories of long summers spent here. I am never happier than when I’m beside the sea. I’m also fond of a mountain, especially when it’s got snow on it.
When I’m not beside the sea or up a mountain or sitting at my desk, you can usually find me chatting on the radio as a regular guest on BBC Berkshire’s weekly Book Club, or loitering on Twitter (@mandajjennings), Facebook and Instagram (@amandajennings1).
I love meeting and engaging with readers, whether that’s on social media, or at libraries, book clubs and literary festivals.
If you see me out and about at an event do say hello! What am I doing now? Well, I live just outside Henley-on-Thames with my husband, three daughters and an unruly menagerie of pets, and am currently writing my fifth book which will be published in 2020.

My Review:

The Storm by Amanda Jennings is a fascinating family drama that kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. I was gripped by the story of Hannah and Nathan, whose marriage isn’t quite as straight forward as it at first seems.

The beautiful but unforgiving setting of a Cornish fishing port in the 1990’s is the backdrop for this suspense filled drama that kept me on my toes from beginning to end. What happened all those years ago on the night of the storm that changed Hannah and Nathan’s lives forever? Why, ever since that night, does Hannah allow Nathan to dictate how she lives her life? And how is the tragedy of the past about to make itself known in the present?

I loved this book. Amanda Jennings has written a fast paced and gripping tale that’s full of twists, turns and surprises to keep you guessing right up until the final page has been turned. An atmospheric read that I thoroughly enjoyed, The Storm is a book I would highly recommend.

The Storm by Amanda Jennings is available to buy now: Amazon UK
