    A Brillant Read

    Thank-you to #Netgalley and #Bookouture for the advanced reading copy of The House Wife in exchange for an honest review. The Housewife: An addictive and gripping psychological thriller. This is the story of Diane who appears to have the perfect life until one day while she is working in a charity shop she come face to face with a woman who triggers off a buried memory. This chance encounter with the mysterious woman has Diane’s perfect world crashing down around her and her life is thrown into turmoil. Soon it becomes clear that something tragic has happened that Diane has repressed especially the chilling feeling she gets when she is in the lounge room of her home. Not getting any answers from her husband who is pulling away from her, does the woman from the charity shop who Diane keeps seeing hold the answers to unlocking this mystery or is it all in Diane’s mind? Wow what a book! A real page turner that had me reading well into the night or should I say the early hours of the morning! I was totally imersed in this story from the get go and couldn’t get enough. This is the first book I have read from Valerie Keogh and it definitely won’t be my last. This is what a psychological thriller should be and Valerie excels in creating a story that keeps the reader hooked until the last word.

    The Housewife by Valerie Keogh

    Fantastic read. The suspense kept me going all the way through. Thoroughly recommended. Just bought another book from the same author.

    Excellent

    Very good read could not put it down. Very intense, and sad at the way things pan out after losing a child.

    A good fast read

    The Housewife is anything but a story built around the life and times of a typical housewife. Valerie Keogh brings us Diane, wife of Paul, a couple living what should have been comfortably in middle-class London. It brings to mind the old adage 'Marry in haste, repent in leisure', and this marriage is a classic example of the same. Paul is set in his ways, very controlling in the running of the house and the marriage and the care of their three-year-old daughter Emma. Diane, though independent and carefree when the couple met, married and moved Diane from Bristol to London is, during their fourth year together, struggling. She cries easily, has many missing blanks in her memories over the last year, a tendency to over-react to Paul's criticism, confusion about the events of the last year and her six weeks under care at a treatment center, and a tendency to drink a little too much wine. Paul is obviously unhappy, nit-picking about their home and Emma's care, burying himself in his work, making time at home only for the child he so obviously loves. As long as Diane keeps the laundry up, the house clean, and supper on the table in time for the TV news Paul can tolerate Jo's presence. What will he do if she can not continue to get it together enough to take care of Emma and the house? Is he seeing someone else? Is he trying to drive her crazy so he can divorce her and get full custody of Emma? Jo knows that she has to fill in the blanks in her mind. When she asks Paul for answers, he just repeats the advice of the professionals who had her under care gave to him with her release- the memories would return with less damage to her psyche if that happened naturally, as Spontaneous Recovery. But Jo knows she is under deadline with Pauls' patience, that she is being shadowed by a woman she doesn't know, that Paul is spending too much time on the phone in his home office. That office he now keeps locked when he isn't in it. She might be paranoid but 'they' are out to get her. Who can she count on? The tension stays at warp speed during this psychological thriller. I am pleased to recommend to friends and family. I received a free electronic edition of this psychological novel from Netgalley, Valerie Keogh, and Bookouture in exchange for an honest review. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me.
