Blurb; Everyone has a secret in their past.
Everyone pretends to be something they’re not.
But someone is always watching… and that someone is closer than you think.
Holly returns to her home town after some time away – she has been through something terrible and now she needs a safe haven in which to recover, and to plan the rest of her life. She finds a room in a quiet and leafy suburban street, in the home of Cora Barrett.
David lives next door to Cora Barrett and he sees everything that happens on Baker Crescent. David stays at home, and he watches: he likes to feel safe and he doesn’t like to leave the house. He wants to keep his friends and neighbours safe too. So he observes them, and he records every tiny detail of their lives, just in case the information is ever needed.
Both lonely and vulnerable, Holly and David gradually begin to strike up a friendship. But Holly can’t shake the feeling that someone from her past might have tracked her down. And David is always watching… But uncovering the secret that could save his new friend and neighbour could be the one thing that destroys him.
My Review; Now I must admit this is the first book I have read by K.L Slater BUT… Rest assurred all her other books are waiting patiently on my kindle. What a brilliant story! I enjoyed it, I loved it.
Who did you really let into your home?
The Visitor is told through three main characters Holly, David and Cora. I found each character odd, unusual and different in their own personal way, but I especially thought David’s character was a right wierdo. Each character is hiding their own dark secrets which are not revealed until the end and trust me you will not expect any of them!
The story is written well, easy to read, fast paced and contains short chapters. I managed to finish The Visitor within 24 hours. Gripping. The ending is where it all starts to kick off!! Wow. Towards the end I did start to feel sorry for poor Holly, but I think the ending was perfect for this story. A well deserved four stars and I would highly recommend to you all.
