  • Mind bending

    This is a real mind bender wondering if Georgina is at best overreacting or at worst having a mental breakdown or so it seems from her husband Bren’s perspective, When their son Cody starts talking about a new granny Georgina finds it unnerving but get increasingly concerned when she starts to think that this might be a real person not just a figment of her imagination, With her marriage struggles thrown into the mix you really do question her sanity and it’s hard to work out what’s real and what’s imagined. Bit of a slow starter for me but definitely started playing with my brain as I got increasingly absorbed.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A Classy, Gripping Début

    Cody, Georgina's seven-year-old son has a new friend that he met in the park whom he refers to as 'New Granny'. He has had imaginary friends in the past and Bren, Georgina's husband thinks that 'New Granny' is another one so he's unconcerned. Georgina, however, is not convinced and isn't sure what to believe. Her own mum, Rose, died only a few weeks ago so Cody could be trying to deal with his loss of Grandmother Rose, or could it be that someone is lurking in the shadows, watching? The story follows Georgina as she goes about her busy life trying to fit into her days looking after Cody, her studying and her work as well as being a wife to Bren. One year away from qualifying as a teacher she works part-time in a bookshop. Bren works for a tech company and has a master's in psychology. As Georgina worries for Cody's safety, those around her begin to question her sanity, even Georgina herself. Rachel Ryan's character creation is very strong in this novel, the writing crisp and inciting. As the creative plot unfolds a deep sense of eeriness takes root and remains until the final pages. Hidden Lies is a compelling whodunit that flows well, with a surprising ending, all delightfully presented in a neat package. A promising début from Rachel Ryan. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Little, Brown Book Group UK/ Piatkus via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.
