  • The Au Pair

    This is not the usual genre I read. The only fault I could find was that it started a bit slow but once it got going I found it very hard to put down. Lies and secrets can so easily destroy a family. Overall I enjoyed it.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Utterly Compelling

    The Au Pair, the début family mystery/thriller from British author Emma Rous, certainly took me by surprise! My initial impressions were that this was a thriller novel concerning a long-hidden family mystery, but it actually developed into something much more wonderful. This novel certainly had some fantastic pulling power! Mystery, secrets and dark family truths, all define The Au Pair. I loved Emma Rous' tight narrative and her writing style in general and I wasn’t aware of just how much this great story would tick all of my boxes. I love taking a chance on début authors and I was richly rewarded by my first experience Emma Rous' impressive writing. I really liked that there was an overwhelming sense of place in this novel which certainly contributed to the wow factor feeling I had from the setting of The Au Pair. The story had an ominous and hostile eeriness to it from the very moment I picked up this novel. I was tremendously impressed by the author's characterisation of the main players Seraphine and Laura and also those on the periphery. These secondary characters ranged from family members and siblings, to love interests and each was finely chiselled to perfection by Emma Rous. Always cloaked in mystery, I was never entirely sure who or what to believe in this fantastic tale, with its fair share of rumour and suspicion. There was a soupçon of romance in The Au Pair to spice things up and the gothic direction that the book took was very surprising. I would be inclined to describe The Au Pair as a gothic thriller. This was a tremendous début novel and I am so looking forward to the next novel by Emma Rous as I’m sure it will win me over. Do not delay in picking up a copy of The Au Pair! I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel at my own request from Little, Brown Book Group UK via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • Fascinating Plot

    This is the best book I’ve read for a long while. A gripping plot and twists that just keep on coming. I’ll be looking for more books from this Sutherland.
