This months book was the psychological thriller Keep You Close by Lucie Whitehouse. As I mentioned in my previous update, after being initially completely gripped by the excellent prologue, I started to lose interest slightly as the book slowed down to lay out the backstory and characters. I have to say, now, at the end, I’m glad I persevered!
When I last updated, I had just been drawn back in to this atmospheric thriller. If you are a fan of psychological thrillers and maybe prefer a more literary style of writing, then this is the book for you! I was totally caught off guard by the first twist in this book (no spoilers!) and as it worked it way towards the end I found I couldn’t put it down. The end was another twist and not what I was expecting (I normally manage to work these out well before the end!) – always the mark of a good book!
In complete honesty, this is probably not fast paced enough for me but the beginning and end were excellent and I can’t deny Lucie is an excellent writer, the book is SO well written that it drew me in anyway.
