Blurb; How close is too close?
Connie and Ness met in the park while their children played. As they talked, they realised they were neighbours. Perhaps it was only natural that they and their families would become entirely inseparable.
But when Ness’s marriage ends in a bitter divorce, she is suddenly at Connie’s house all the time. Connie doesn’t have a moment to herself, no time alone with her husband, not a second to chat to her kids.
It’s all too much. Something has to give.
Connie has woken up in a psychiatric hospital. They say she committed a terrible crime but she says she can’t remember a thing.
My Review; I absolutely loved this book! A real page turner. Thrilling. Gripping. Tense. Edge of your seat story. You cannot tell this is a debut at all. The story switches back and forth between the past and present.
I did find some of the chapters were very long for my liking and it was a slow start for this story but then it gets good and you’re hooked. The story does highlight the issue of mental health! Enjoyed it. I also love the cover.
I awarded a fair four stars and would recommend. I look forward to reading more by this author in the future.
