My thoughts…

Twists out of nowhere! This book is full of little secrets and unexpected twists that will have you doubling back to read the page again. Did that really just happen?! Yes. Yes it did! Wow what a brilliant book. Catherine Cooper’s debut novel last year – The Chalet – was stunning but she gets even better with this one!

The Chateau is a larger than life character in itself – looming in the background throughout the book and set up with characterisation almost like a real life person. The narratives are strong, leaving you feeling as if you know the characters well until the next persons story unearths the picture you were building up. By the end of the book, who will you really feel compassion for and dislike for? It’s difficult to work it out through the delicious plot twists and underlying secrets!
