Throughout this book the reader is kept guessing as to whether Jess is a reliable narrator or not – she’s not even sure herself. Her mother is an unpleasant woman whose character will stay with me a long time. Lots of wonderful twists and turns as Jess’s past is gradually revealed. Very cleverly written book – a wonderful debut and I look forward to the next book from this talented author.
I really enjoyed this, having already read Alex’s first novel I was waiting for this one to be released, and it didn’t disappoint! Great storyline, and, as my husband is agoraphobic and suffers extreme panic attacks, it also helped give me added insight into the condition in a way that he’s not been able to despite being together many years. So it had that added bonus for me as well! But putting that aside, great plot, great characters, and a damn good read! Five stars from me.
“It kept me gripped from the start. So well written.”
