Blind Spot – Paula Hawkins ★★★★

Blurb; ‘How can you say things like this? How can you be so blind?’

Since they were kids, Edie, Jake and Ryan have been the closest of friends. It’s been the three of them against the world. Edie thought the bonds between them were unbreakable. So when Jake is brutally murdered and Ryan accused of the crime, her world is shattered.

Edie is alone for the first time in years, living in the remote house that she and Jake shared. She is grief-stricken and afraid – with good reason. Because someone is watching. Someone has been waiting for this moment. Now that Edie is alone, the past she tried so hard to leave behind is about to catch up with her…

My Review; From the bestselling author of The Girl on the Train comes a brilliant, short quickread at 120 pages. Perfect for me right now with a 9 day old newborn. I really enjoyed this was gripped from the first line. Kept me guessing and doubting the characters throughout. The story focuses on three main characters Edie, Jake and Ryan who has been long term friends for ages. But from the start Jake is dead. Why? How? Who? An unexpected outcome that relates to their teenage years and a brilliant epilogue. A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend. My first book read since having baby #3.
