“Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance. You might not want to like them, but you do.
You’d like to get to know Grace better.
But it’s difficult, because you realise Jack and Grace are never apart.
Some might call this true love. Others might ask why Grace never answers the phone. Or how she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. And why there are bars on one of the bedroom windows.”
This book is receiving a lot of interest at the moment. Lots of brilliant reviews and hype attached to it which, for me, can be a little off putting. I never seem to enjoy hyped up books as much as I’m led to believe I will. This is certainly not the case with this brilliant piece of fiction. What an amazing, chilling read this is. The sense of foreboding I had a few chapters in was giving me goosebumps. Seriously scary stuff.
Grace and Jack Angel are perfect in every way. Their home is exquisite, their holidays to Thailand are the stuff dreams are made of and their friends are envious. However, appearances can be very deceptive and not everything is as it seems.
The story is told from Grace’s perspective and I was on her side from the moment I met the couple. I don’t want to give anything away but you could tell that something quite horrible was going to happen to her and her beautifully written sister, Millie.
At times during this book my skin was crawling. There I was, sat reading in my lounge. The house was silent and my little one was napping upstairs. All of a sudden the postman delivered the mail and I jumped out of my skin! My heartbeat is still a little irregular now and that was an hour or so ago. That’s how engrossed in the story I was.
I love this book. I’m finding it very hard to say much else as everything I type gives something of the plot away and I would much rather you read it for yourself.
Do whatever you can to get a copy of this book. It’s one that you just can’t miss.
Five out of five stars.
