I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
(Finished Reading: 24/07/17
My 17th book this year)
Grace and Jack, the perfect couple, a picture of wealth, intelligence, wit and many talents. Along comes the friends who are envious of their blissful romance and devotion to one another. Hosting dinner parties, home catered by the wonderful Grace, going on amazing holidays abroad. Is there really such thing as such perfection in any relationship?
There’s a whole other story once the doors are closed and the rest of the world can no longer see. Grace’s life isn’t so picture perfect after all…
I found this book gripped me from about midway. I stayed up until 2.30am just to find out how it ends. The ending felt justified and acceptable and somehow made the story great.
I would definitely recommend this book to others. Different scenes from the story kept popping into my mind and I felt some of Grace’s anxiety, fear and despair.
It’s best not to read much into the reviews for this one and just dive right in to the book. It is so much more thrilling to have absolutely no idea what to expect. I love Jack’s intuitive mind and absolute mad obsession and enjoyment of fear.
It’s strange how much a person can cope with in order to protect a loved one. Poor Grace, it was thrilling at every turn and every attempt at escape.
