It Will Always Be Us is the third book in the Fitz Series from the supreme storyteller Theresa Sederholt. It is a clever and thrilling suspense that has some drama, mystery danger, secrets, betrayal, action…. and so many more intriguing elements, that I was completely engrossed in the story by the end of the first chapter. This story could be read as a standalone- but, I really do recommend reading the first two books before embarking on this one, as they lay down some of the framework for the series, as well as introducing all the recurring characters- all of which really sets you up to get the best out of your reading experience, not just of this book but the overall series.
As I have come to expect from Ms. Sederholt, the story is quite complex, where we get multiple points of view, as well as some twists and surprising developments- making it feel like we’re getting a whole lot more story than first meets the eye. Ms. Sederholt masterfully choreographs all the elements into a fast paced, thrilling, and seamless read. Having read the first two books and loving them as much as I have, I really had some high expectations for this story- so, I am really happy to say that Ms. Sederholt didn’t disappoint, delivering everything I could have hoped for, and then some. It’s really hard to pick my favourite from the three books so far, because they really are so fantastic, but I think this one has managed to get ahead of the other two, just. There is a brilliant puzzle to unravel in this story, with epic tension and intense suspense, I spent most of the time on the edge of my seat, holding my breath as the story played out. As with the other books, this really is an emotionally charged and gripping read- and a very worthy addition to this first-rate series.
Fitz, who we met in the previous books, has been called in to help a widowed mother of three, to figure out the puzzle that her husband’s death has created. Things just don’t add up, and Fitz has a bad feeling that things aren’t going to end well. Danger is a lot closer than they realise and lives are on the line. What did her husband get himself into? Can Fitz figure it out before it’s too late?
Once again Ms. Sederholt kept me completely spellbound with this gripping tale. I loved following along with Fitz on this investigation, putting all the pieces of the puzzle together and trying to figure out what was going on. I also loved catching up with all the characters from the first book- his loving, close-knit and supportive family (although somewhat quirky) and work colleagues, really are such wonderful characters. I am in awe of Ms. Sederholt’s creative abilities, and how she manages to produce such incredibly well written stories, every time, and making it seem effortless. This is one of my all-time favourite series, from an author on my must-read list. Now I really can’t wait to get my hands on her next book. It can’t come soon enough!
Thank you, Ms. Sederholt!
