Sue Watson has written thirteen novels – usually involving cake. However this latest book, a psychological thriller, definitely does not have cake in it! Thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for an advanced copy of this book (which I really did take forever to read this time) – but it was truly worth the wait.
If you loved Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train or I Let You Go – then you will love this. A gripping psychological trhiller with a final twist that will have your jaw hitting the floor in amazment.
Marianne has a life others dream of. A beautiful townhouse on the best street in the neighbourhood. Three bright children who are her pride and joy.
Sometimes her past still hurts: losing her mother early, growing up in foster care. But her husband, Simon, is always there. A successful surgeon, he’s the envy of every woman they’ve ever met. Flowers, gifts, trips to France: nothing is too good for his family.
Then Simon says another woman’s name. The way he lingers on it, Caroline , gives Marianne a shudder of suspicion, but she knows it’s nothing – she can’t entertain this flash of paranoia… or can she?
This story is completely believable, whether the husband or wife is the perpetrator it’s something that is becoming more and more talked about in the present day. Sue Watson has done two things – broach the subject and bring it to light, and pull off her first psychological thriller. Whilst the back story itself isn’t unique as such – the twists and turns – the paranoia and the doubt – are perfectly executed to make a gripping read. Where’s book two….!
