Ad – review. I was sent a copy of this book for review purposes and all thoughts are my own.

Today I am involved in the book tour for Hidden Depths by J.H.Mann. Jason Mann is an award-winning journalist and writer living in the South West of England with Nicola, his wife, and their lively whippet, Patch. He is also a shore-based volunteer for the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution). Jason says: ‘Many of my stories are set in the wonderful county of Cornwall where truth can sometimes be stranger than fiction. I have swum and surfed there much of my life. It has been a special place for me with its legends, soaring cliffs, rugged moors and wild seas. The landscape has a raw, mystical magic.

About the book
On a wild Cornish headland, Catherine Carlyon takes a decision that will change her life forever. She is facing the bleak prospect of years in prison after being sucked into a fraud by a man she thought loved her. Catherine has found a possible way out – to disappear. But disappearing comes at a price.
 She must abandon her family and everything she holds dear. An epic adventure in the North Atlantic is looming which will take her to her limits and beyond...

Hidden Depths is a suspenseful novel where we see the protagonist Catherine Carlyon facing the reality of imment prison due to committing fraud. With spiralling consequences due to her decisions and mistakes we see her struggle with her slipping morels and her decision to stay out of prison by disappearing for good. This story shows how deceit, lies and guilt pan out the deeper you get involved in something. I wasn't keen on the characters within the story as they all were selfish and arrogant in there own ways. Hidden Depths was a slow starter for me but once it picked up the pace it was an entertaining read especially the last few chapters that were really tense.
