Hélene Fermont writes character-driven psychological crime fiction with a Scandi Noir flavour.

Known for her explosive, pacy narrative and storylines, she has published three novels – Because of You, We Never Said Goodbye and His Guilty Secret – and two short story collections – The Love of Her Life and Who’s Sorry Now? Her fourth novel is due for release in the summer of 2019.

After 20 years in London, Hélene recently returned to her native Sweden where she finds the unspoiled scenery and tranquillity a therapeutic boost for creativity.

Enjoying a successful career as a Psychologist, when she’s not working her ‘day job’, Hélene spends her time writing, with friends and family, or playing with her beloved cat, Teddy

When Hannah and Ben meet at a friend’s party, he knows she’s The One. But Hannah’s in an intense relationship with Mark and planning to return to her native Sweden to embark on a teaching career.

Desperate to make Ben fall in love with her, rich spoilt heiress Vanessa sets in motion a devious string of events that ultimately changes the course of four people’s lives indefinitely.

Hannah is the love of Ben’s life, yet Vanessa will stop at nothing to claim the man she is convinced is her destiny.

Because of You is a dark, morally complex and cross-generational story of enduring love, fate and destiny.

WHAT I THOUGHT – This story followed the lives of the two main characters and their families also the partners they acquired through this story.  Nothing significant happened along the way just the usual separations, children, illness and the struggles some people have with life. At some points I just wanted to smash their heads together and say just get on with it,you love one another so get married and be together. This is one long book with parts, I felt like would never end. I kept waiting for something significant to happen but it never did.

I did see that this had a psychological twist but I am not sure I would describe it as that, there was a lot going on with some mentally challenged women I would call it or people who will do anything to get the end result they want. Not a thought to anyone they hurt in the process.
A good story if you like reading about people’s lives. It could have been a bit shorter though.
