C'est un beau roman, beaucoup de rebondissements et finalement une histoire simple mais que je recommande.
Ce livre se lit très vite , quand on est pris dans l'histoire on ne veut plus s'arrêter.

The ending could have been better 12 mai 2014
Par BCB & More - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Cally Taylor is certainly not new to the writing scene and has written two romantic comedy books under that name; however The Accident is her first in the suspense/thriller genre. The synopsis sounded pretty good and I was looking forward to getting stuck in. The story opens up with Sue Jackson visiting her daughter as she lies helplessly in a coma. Sue and her husband Brian have no idea why their teenage daughter Charlotte deliberately stepped in front of a bus resulting in her current state.

The writing was great from the very beginning and I found myself very drawn into the story. Sue is convinced that her daughter would not have deliberately stepped in front of a bus and is determined to get to the bottom of it. What follows is a woman’s determination to get to the truth no matter what the cost. The tension was pretty high especially as the book progresses. In addition to this storyline we get to read chapters of Sue’s past which goes a long was to explaining her current state of mind. Cally Taylor has gone all out to put you in the shoes of a Mother who is distraught and has to find the truth, and I think she has done that magnificently.

The past stories involving Sue and her ex James made you question the current situation even more. At times I even questioned Sue’s mental state wondering if her imagination was going into overdrive or if the things she had seen and heard were real. In just under a day and a half I had got to the last part of the book, but must admit the final few chapters left me feeling a little disappointed. I think the ending smacked of convenience too much for my liking and I was a little annoyed by that. With that to one side there is no way I could have rated it less than 4 as the writing and suspense was certainly up where it should have been. I for one will be looking out for future works by Cally in this genre and look forward to seeing what she comes up with next.

Never dismiss gut instinct... 24 avril 2014
Par Cheryl M-M - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
It might just be me, but I thought the husband Brian was a complete tosser. He wasn't supportive, he was condescending and in his own way abusive.
When you make someone feel small, insignificant or make them feel as if they are losing their mind then that counts as emotional abuse in my book. Brian is fully aware of her past, and instead of understanding her fears, flashbacks and insecurities he treats her as if she belongs in the looney bin.
Her daughter is in a coma does he expect her to dance an Irish jig and throw a party? It is only natural for Sue to be emotionally distraught.

Sue knows deep down inside that something just isn't right and she is determined to follow the niggling feeling of doubt all the way to the truth, whether the truth is good or bad. Everyone is so busy dismissing her gut instincts that no person is actually looking for the reason Charlotte chose to do what she did.

At the same time Sue experiences something nearly all parents of teenagers go through, realizing that their child has secrets from them and is in the process of building a path of independence, which ultimately usually leads to them leaving the nest. Finding out that your child not only has secrets is one thing; however finding out that those secrets might be endangering their life is another matter entirely.
I don’t think Sue understands how her past relationships have influenced her behaviour towards life and the people she loves. Her anxiety, fears and paranoia have been projected on to her daughter, ergo resulting in the daughter hiding things from her parents.

The Accident is actually a very realistic account of the repercussions of abuse even years after the abuse has taken place. It is often always an underlying issue for those that have experienced it and can affect all future relationships and dynamics.

The story also sheds light on the fact that some abusers, especially in domestic abuse cases, never give up. Some of them perceive the abused to be their possession and will persevere in their destructive tactics till the bitter end. Often that end means death to the abused.

Society still doesn't take that threat seriously enough, which statistics clearly show. If anything this story is a great way to enhance the fact that society, government, law enforcement and we the people should be doing more to help stop the abusers.
Far too often someone out there says ‘I think he(or she) is going to kill me one day’ and far too often that person is or was right. We need to listen to them before and not after the fact, when it is too late to save them.
I received a copy of this book via NetGalley.

Fast-paced and gripping 12 août 2015
Par Chick Lit Central - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
By Becky Gulc

I’d heard so many good things about this book over the past year but as it’s not a ‘chick lit’ novel it wasn’t until the festive period when I gave myself chance to sit down and enjoy this book. I knew I enjoyed Cally’s writing style as I’d loved her previous chick-lit novel Home for Christmas, but this is a completely different genre, her first psychological thriller.
This is a fast-paced and gripping novel that I enjoyed even more than I hoped I would. The narrative switches between Sue’s past and present and each chapter wasn’t enough, I just had to keep reading as each chapter uncovered a bit more of the mystery, but also raised more questions and possibilities. Just when you think you’re getting closer to knowing what has happened to Charlotte (and Sue) there’s another twist, and always a good one!
If you like a psychological thriller you would certainly enjoy this book, it does cover serious topics like domestic violence so if you prefer a lighter read this is maybe not for you. I loved it and look forward to reading Cally’s upcoming release.
Sue Jackson has the perfect family but when her teenage daughter Charlotte deliberately steps ... 24 août 2015
Par healthysean - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book was voted for my PIck It For Me Book for May, so thanks to those who voted for this book.

Fast-paced and suspenseful The Accident,a gripping psychological thriller about the deadly secrets your children can keep ...Sue Jackson has the perfect family but when her teenage daughter Charlotte deliberately steps in front of a bus and ends up in a coma she is forced to face a very dark reality. Retracing her daughter's steps she finds a horrifying entry in Charlotte's diary and is forced to head deep into Charlotte's private world. In her hunt for evidence, Sue begins to mistrust everyone close to her daughter and she's forced to look further, into the depths of her own past. Sue will do anything to protect her daughter. But what if she is the reason that Charlotte is in danger?

The story flickers between the heart-breaking events of the present and diary entries from Sue’s past, allowing two events to unfold before us. In the present day Sue is dealing with the events surrounding her daughter having walked in front of a bus, and in the past we see the abusive relationship which Sue suffered in her earlier years. Sue is convinced that there is a link between the two, even if it is only something as tentative as her daughter having a relationship which mirrors her past in the smallest of ways, and that there must be some reason for her daughter having made the choice that she did, however being somewhat unreliable it is difficult for anyone – including Sue – to tell whether she is seeing connections or whether she is simply imagining things to be there.

The main characters were so well written and convincing I had to remind myself I was reading a novel and not about a real life event. Sue's past life makes for chilling reading and is at times quite scary; once you know the full history it really is no surprise why she has so many mental scars. I really enjoyed this excellent thriller and look forward to reading her next book The Lie.

Give this book an easy 4 stars
... I've read by this author and I very much enjoyed The Accident as I did The Lie 3 mai 2015
Par sarah hardy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is the second book I've read by this author and I very much enjoyed The Accident as I did The Lie.

The Accident gripped me right from the start. This is a fast paced thriller that by the end leaves you feeling breathless.

The story itself flicks between present day and the main character Sue's past. Due to Sue's daughter Charlotte's questionable accident that has left her in a coma, Sue retraces her daughter's steps to try and find out what happened in the lead up to the accident. Only problem is, is that no one seems to want to share their knowledge of events to help Sue find the answers she so desperately needs. Not only does Sue have enough to deal with, with her family, she also has started to get items posted through her door which brings back unpleasant memories from her past.

A dark chilling read that hooks you straight away. There are quite a few twists and turns that has the reader on the edge of the seat in anticipation of what the outcome is going to be.

Yet another fantastic read by C.L Taylor.
