Reading Challenge Category: Free ARC from NetGalley
Ten years of marriage. Ten years of secrets. An anniversary they’ll never forget. Adam and Amelia are spending the weekend in the Scottish Highlands. The remote location is perfect for what they have planned. But when their romantic trip takes a dark turn, they both start to wonder – can they trust the one they’re with? Because every couple tells little white lies. Only for Adam and Amelia, the truth is far more dangerous.
Wow! What a turbulent ride this book was! It is a mixture of pure thriller, psych thriller and domestic chaos! When Adam and Amelia head for Scotland for the weekend to try and save their marriage, neither of them could have suspected the outcome the two nights would bring! Right from the beginning, you are drawn in by the bickering couple in a snowstorm in the middle of Scotland. Each of them has their little lies and secrets that are drip-fed to you throughout the book as the story starts to be pieced together. These little tidbits really keep you glued to the book, and I could not put it down! That first night in the chapel really had my hairs standing on end; it was just so creepy! Once Robin was introduced, I immediately felt scared; there was just something unfettered about her that made her a loose cannon; you didn’t know what she was capable of. I really enjoyed the letters that were being written on the anniversaries; this gave us an insight into the marriage and how it was slowly spiralling out of control. The twist, though, just blew my mind, I didn’t guess anything, and I had to sit and cogitate for a moment to get my head around it. I sat and tried to think back whether there’d been any signs, but it was just so expertly done. I haven’t been taken by surprise like that in a while, so I tip my hat to the author for managing what so many fail to do these days! This is undoubtedly a brilliantly unparalleled story, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I actually finished it a few days ago, and I’ve not been able to stop thinking about it! The author is certainly a brilliant writer. I have her down as one of my favourites, but when I started to read this, I found myself not being able to remember what I’d previously read of hers. This is because every book is just so different; there is nothing to remind you of her other books. They are unique and fabulous in their own rights, and this is certainly no exception. I would definitely recommend not just this book but all of the author’s previous books too!
