MY REVIEW

As I am a committed to reading crime novels, I could not wait to read The Whole World. Every minute was astonishing.

Polly Bailey is an American, Liv is from California and Nick is British, who all become best of friends living in Cambridge England. The three spend all their time together.

Each layer of parts of the story is unfolded by Polly, Nick, Policeman Morris, Professor Gretchen and Liv.

The story starts with a buzz. Nick takes Polly to his office up in the Earth Science office, where they start to have an encounter of kissing. Polly stops Nick pushing Nick away as Polly is violently sick and bolts from Nick’s office.

Nick, Polly and Liv help blind professor Gretchen Paul do a research project organising photographs of her mother’s biography .Gretchen’s mother was a novelist who wrote five novels.

Nick disappears two days after Polly’s and Nick’s encounter in his office. Morris a policeman launches an investigation in to Nick’s disappearance and begin’s by questioning Polly. The last time Polly had seen Nick was Tuesday evening when she was sick in his office. Polly just can’t understand how Nick has just disappeared, he is the nicest person, sweet and gentle person Polly has ever known. It appears Liv seems to know everything about Nick and Nick’s family that Polly does not know.  More problems occur for Polly as her mother Miranda Bailey gets arrested.  The Whole World  has so many twist and turns and full on family secrets, suspense and surprises.

THIS IS A STUNNING NOVEL BY A NEW NAME TO WATCH OUT FOR.

A MASTERFUL WHO DONE IT!

EMILY WINSLOW’S NEXT NOVEL IS THE START OF EVERYTHING .I can’t wait to get a copy and read and review it!

My motto for today: enjoy what ever you are reading toda
