About the book
Her husband says it’s suicide. The police say it’s murder.
Liam Buckley was a married man with two teenage children when he moved out of the family home to start a new life with his lover. His wife Jennifer never forgave him, but now she needs him to come back: she’s been diagnosed with a terminal illness, and the kids can’t cope alone.
One day after Liam moves home, Jennifer is found dead. Liam thinks it’s suicide. But the police, led by DS Louise Kennedy, are convinced it’s murder.
Liam hires a retired detective to help prove his innocence, but it’s no easy task. The children are distraught, and Jennifer’s best friend, Sarah, is waging a campaign against Liam, determined to expose him for a liar and a cheat.
As secrets surface from the complex web of Buckley family life, DS Kennedy must decide. Did Jennifer Buckley end her own life, or did Liam take it from her? The answer, when it comes, will shock them all…
Told from different points of view, When The Time Comes was a fantastic read.
I thought I might have liked each viewpoint to be expanded upon a little more but then I got to thinking “how much is too much?” and changed my mind. The story is told perfectly as it is.
I always enjoy Adele O’Neill’s writing style and find it very easy to get absorbed in her books and this book was no different.
The premise of the book is very interesting, controversial and thought-provoking. It’s compelling throughout and emotional in all the right spots. In fact, it’s heart-shattering in places.
I’d recommend you experience this book for yourself and you can purchase it at any of the following places:
