The One That Got Away is a book we were lucky enough to get an ARC for via Netgalley.
It is a book that pulls you in its grip and does not let you go till the last page with an ending that is incredibly hard to predict.
Egan is extremely talented at writing in lots of twists and turns that keep up the suspense and keep the reader guessing. She got her inspiration for the novel from spending time living on a boat in the Med.
An earlier edition of this gripping read was also shortlisted for First Novel Prize, and the 2017 Richard and Judy Search for a Bestseller Competition. After reading this novel it will firmly put Egan Hughes on your radar as an author you want to read more of!
