What a rush this book was!! From the first page to last, secrets were hidden, keeping me enthralled and invested in the storyline.

A wicked ride from beginning to end, author Alice Hunter, in her debut, rocked this thriller, making me sit at the edge of my seat many a time.

A loving couple, a routine life with a 2 year old daughter, and a knock at the door. It was the cops at the door wanting to take in the husband for enquiry into the disappearance of his ex-girlfriend. Then the story started rolling through stormy waves.

I loved how the author brought out the nuances of the wife’s character. I was often left wondering if she knew more than she revealed. All the love she had for her daughter came through in her actions and thoughts. Yet that niggling doubt never left me.

The deft hand of the author was seen as she out the story in 4 different POVs giving me all the angles to their past and present lives.

An intriguing story that kept me completely hooked both in its audio and written versions. Well worth spending time with this beauty.

They’re saying he’s a monster. And they’re saying she knew.

Beth and Tom Hardcastle are the envy of their neighbourhood – they have the perfect marriage, the perfect house, the perfect family.

When the police knock on their door one evening, Beth panics. Tom should be back from work by now – what if he’s crashed his car? She fears the worst.

But the worst is beyond imagining.

As the interrogation begins, Beth will find herself questioning everything she believed about her husband.

They’re husband and wife – till death do them part…

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.

  1. Good review, Shalini. 4 different POVs – that must have been a challenge to pull off, but sounds like the author succeeded. Have a good weekend.

  2. How much did the family know? Always a question, whether it should be or not, when crimes are premeditated. This one sounds like it would grab you up emotionally.

Awesome to see you here. Let's chat.
