The Distant Hours - Kate Morton

Oh, good. 

I was hoping we'd come across this classic trope in this book because it is beginning to feel like an encyclopedia of overused themes. 

 

Anyone want to hazard a guess which overused device we have been given now??

 

(Btw, I am still weirdly enjoying this book. Sometimes one needs fluff.)
