Psychological Thriller

Book Review: The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine

The Last Mrs Parrish is admittedly light on psychological suspense but is one very sassy thriller which takes some surprising turns as the story progresses and quickly becomes an insidiously addictive read! The simple premise undersells this novel which has a lot more substance than it might appear and is underpinned by a solid plot, ensuring that it is more than simply chic lit with its claws out! In a well constructed story that zips along and touches upon some surprisingly weighty issues the end result is a riotously funny and very honest novel.

Book Review: Lock Every Door by Riley Sager

Lock Every Door by Riley Sager contains all the horror and gothic tropes that I love in this type of story – ominous dreams, strange noises at night, cryptic notes, secret nooks and crannies, a combination of unfriendly and over friendly neighbours, mysterious and sudden disappearances, and that's just for starters. The creepy, picturesque setting of The Bartholomew was as glamorous and seductive as it was eerie and claustrophobic, and as you would expect has a cursed history, of suspicious deaths.

Book Review: The Sister by Louise Jensen

The Sister by Louise Jensen is this author’s debut novel, and what a cracker it is! A dark psychological thriller, the twists and turns continue in a relentless fashion. I will admit to wanting to smack Grace a couple of times and yell at her because she couldn’t see what I could see! 

Book Review: Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris

You’re hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You’d like to get to know Grace better.
