Oh I did enjoy this creepy, gripping read that I read in two days as I really couldn’t put it down. It’s going to be a hard book to review as I really don’t want to give anything away.
The story follows Adam and Amelia (great couple names) as they are traveling to a romantic weekend away in the hope of saving their marriage. Things quickly become creepy when they arrive and not only does no one come to greet them but when they go exploring they discover the bedroom is exactly like their one at home. More creepy things happen as the story goes on and I soon found myself on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next
I thought none of the characters were particularly likeable which made this an easier book to read in my opinion as I wasn’t particularly routing for anyone. The story is told from both the couple’s point of view and interspersed with letters that Amelia has written every year of their marriage where she tells her true feelings. Adam was an interesting character as he suffers from a neurological condition called Prosopagnosic where he can’t recognise faces which must be very hard to deal with for both characters.
Overall i really enjoyed this book and will be definitely recommending it to others. The feeling of unease in the book gradually increases until I both wanted to keep reading to find out what happens but also wasn’t sure I wanted to find out. There were lots of twists that kept me guess and the big twist took me completely by surprise which I always enjoy.
Huge thanks to HQ stories for inviting me onto the blog tour and for my copy of this book.
