Twelve Days -The Beginning by Jade Reyner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Twelve Days is a contemporary romance which deals with domestic violence. All the action takes place in just 12 days. It suits the pace of the book by revolving around Christmas, a fast paced time of year when people often throw caution to the wind. I was appalled at the violent situation that Elise remained in, but I realise that there are many women in the world who do suffer from domestic violence. This book reaches out to them and if it gives just one person the strength to break free then the author has done a good job. Throughout the book I was undecided about the character Vaughn, I wasn’t sure if he showed signs of obsessive dominance which Elise was trying to escape from with Dale. By the end he had won me around and a cliff hanger ending left me wanting to know what happened to him. I’m glad there is a sequel for us to read the rest of the story of the relationship between the couple. This book does contain adult content.
