About the Book
‘I THOUGHT SHE WAS OUR FRIEND.
I THOUGHT SHE WAS TRYING TO HELP US.’
After the sudden death of her husband, Tess is drowning in grief. All she has left is her son, Jamie, and she’ll do anything to protect him – but she’s struggling to cope.
When grief counsellor Shelley knocks on their door, everything changes. Shelley is beautiful, confident and takes control when Tess can’t bear to face the outside world.
But when questions arise over her husband’s death and strange things start to happen, Tess begins to suspect that Shelley may have an ulterior motive. Tess knows she must do everything she can to keep Jamie safe – but who can she trust?
What I thought
It took me one week to read this. I know many readers will demolish a book in one sitting but I don’t think I’ve ever done that in my life. For me to finish a book in a week it has to be good – really good.
This wasn’t just good, it was amazing. It left me with my mouth agape, jaw dropping, I just never saw that ending coming.
I thought it sounded really interesting from the precis but that was all I read. Half way through and I saw a review of this book appear on Twitter but I wouldn’t read it, I didn’t want to know anything. I wanted to savour every page without knowing anything at all except what I was reading.
It keeps you on the edge, at one point it made me physically jump and my heart lurch when something happened. It’s that unnerving. It is of course very emotional in places. Tess is newly widowed and all the turmoil and the heartache and the immense sense of loss is all there and is very raw. At the same time there are other more menacing things for Tess to deal with on top of her grief.
There are so many things I could say about this story, about Tess, her son Jamie and Shelley who becomes more than just a grief counsellor but a friend too but I don’t want to give anything away. Suffice to say this is more than a psychological thriller. It will keep you interested all the way through, you’ll be trying to work things out, who’s doing what and why but will you ever guess? Read it and find out.
♥ Happy Reading ♥
