Simone is a wife, a mother, a daughter and a suspected murderer.
She and her husband Eric have left the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam for a remote village in the south of France. Together with their two small children, they have bought a tumbledown country estate to renovate and turn into a home and guesthouse. But, months into her new existence, she is arrested.
The plan was simple. They wanted to start again, and the pace in France suited them. But who can you trust to work on your home when you don’t know a soul? Enter Peter. A helpful ex-pat who has built a business that serves their community. It all goes well until Michel, a beautiful young labourer, arrives. Soon he’s all Simone can think about and she’ll do anything to be with him. But Peter is watching – and he’s in control.
As Simone’s story – and her idyllic life – unravels, Esther Verhoef raises the tension and twists the plot.
Rendezvous is an emotional rollercoaster: a powerful story about how getting what you want can be very dangerous indeed . . .
