Blurb; Some people love goodbyes…
23-year-old Catherine is mainly interested in Facebook and flirting, but she reluctantly takes a job at a local care home after her mother puts her foot down – and soon discovers that her new workplace contains many secrets. One of the residents at the home, 82-year-old Rose, is convinced that something sinister is going on in Room 7 and that her own life is under threat. But Rose has dementia – so what does she actually know, and who would believe her anyway? As Catherine starts investigating Rose’s allegations, terrible revelations surface about everyone involved. Can Catherine find out what’s really going on?
My Review; This is one of the authors older books and gosh are you in for a treat! Perfect. Brilliant. The story focuses on a care home for the elderly and dying. Catherine finds herself working their but it’s not as simple as that… Rose is a lovely 82 year old woman resident at the home and has been trying to warn people what has been happening, but due to her dementia noone believes her until its too late. I actually felt sorry for Rose and liked her character, she never gave up and became a hero in the end.
The Exit is dark, thrilling, brutal and sickening especially towards the end. A certain part made me feel dirty and sick for reading it. It is brilliantly written, fast paced and a real page turner. The truth came out in the end! I didn’t want to put it down. Gripping. Edge of your seat read especially towards the end!
A well deserved five stars from me. Highly recommend.
