  • Such a good read!

    This book is definitely going to be one of my favorite reads for this year. Author Sheryl Browne has definitely done it again with this page-turner with lots of twists and turns so hang on for the ride of your life! Joshua Colby ends up falling on the railroad tracks and dies. At the funeral, his mother, Cassandra, sees a pregnant girl but does not have any contact with her. Three months later, the same girl, Kimberley Summers comes to their home with a newborn baby and states that he is Josh's son, Samuel. From that point on, lots of strange things begin to happen making this a fantastic read. This book is told by various narrators which makes it an even better read. Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC of this truly remarkable book that kept me up reading long into the night.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Loved it!

    Every book I have read from Sheryl just out does the other and The New Girlfriend is no exception. It is dark, twisted, oh so wicked and very hard to tear yourself away from it, so make sure that you have set yourself some time aside when you start. Sheryl has put together a very well plotted and thrilling story that had me hooked from start to finish. Told from multiple points of views and with chapters that are told in the present and past tense, Sheryl has gone deep into that wicked mind of hers and has produced a story that is full of secrets, manipulation, lies and deceit. The characters that have been created and put together are first class and have been very well developed. Sheryl has a real knack for this and I love how she gets inside their heads as well as the readers, which always makes for such a realistically vivid reading experience. Though not all likeable, each adds their own mark on the story and are very well portrayed in the roles they have been given. The New Girlfriend is a slow burn to begin with, but in no way did it make me restless wanting the story to move along. It does so at its own pace, all the while with tension and suspense bubbling away in the background, as you wait for the explosions. The best comes in the epilogue, which I have to say is up there with one of the best I have read! Well played Sheryl. Very well played indeed! What always draws me to Sheryl’s books is she really knows how to deliver the most amazing twists and jaw dropping, unexpected endings. So much so, as a book blogger and a fanatical psychological thriller reader, I hereby pronounce her the master of this and of the genre! The New Girlfriend is such a gripping read and a fantastic addition to Sheryl’s bibliography and it is one book that I have no trouble at all in highly recommending! Sheryl really is such an asset to the writing community and I will always be lining up for the next book. Thanks for another cracking read Sheryl and I can’t wait to read what you come up with next. Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture and Sheryl Browne for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The New Girlfriend which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

  • twists and turns

    Crazy meets crazy in this book. Secrets that bloom into avalanches. Some really nasty characters with no redeeming features. Some you have faith in. Your heart breaks for Cassie who has just lost her son Josh in a terrible accident and then his new girlfriend Kim shows up with his son. Let the games begin. Twists and turns, I never saw that ending coming even though I was quite suspicious of a few people in this book, the ending took me by surprise. Thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for this roller coaster of a read.

  • A wicked thriller

    Having read all books by this author, I could see how far the writing had come. Evil came in various forms, and one of them was Sheryl Browne. She gave me unreliable characters, really weird ones, who appeared nice, but I was never sure of them. Then she gave me a plot which inverted over itself midway. The one I liked became the one I was scared of. Then she gave me reveals, not those tiny ones, but huge earth shaking…err…book-shaking ones. The book would change directions frequently. I was kept on the back foot the whole time, not knowing what was happening. There were parts I guessed, rather I hoped the author would write in. And I was blown away when I was right… Suspense kept the prose flowing and secrets made it more intriguing. The story never let up until the last line when truth was revealed to me at last.

  • Lots of misdirection, secrets and lies abound...

    Wow.. 'The New Girlfriend' by Sheryl Browne is a wild ride. The kind where you need a scorecard just to keep up with all the moves being made and the lies being told. Opening with a bang.. or in this case.. practically the screech of metal and the weight of shock and disbelief, Cassie's only son is killed. Just a few short months later, a stranger appears on her doorstep.. claiming to be his girlfriend and bearing a baby in her arms that is clearly her grandchild. In the wake of her loss, Cassie is struggling to cope with the changes that have come at her full speed ahead. The idea that her neurosis drove her son out of the house.. leaving her somehow at fault for his death.. paired with what appears to be a serious relationship he never shared with her or his stepdad, Adam.. has her reeling. Attempting to do what she can for her grandson and his mother, she begins to get cryptic texts in threatening tones referring to a big secret she's been keeping. Someone knows what she's been hiding, a potentially life altering act that she'd do anything to protect. Honestly, this story throws a lot at you. Many of the characters are embroiled in their own nest of secrets, each with something big to lose. While Josh, Cassie's son, actually seems like a basically good guy.. he's far from perfect himself and the result is a handful of people who all might have reason to be involved at least peripherally in anything bad that might have befallen him. I really only found one of the characters to draw any investment from me.. any concern for their well-being, and that was Adam. He's a kind, genuine man.. who seems to try to do his best for pretty much anyone who enters his sphere of existence, even if they aren't entirely kind to him. And I'm pretty sure the author intended it to be that way. It definitely feels as if the other characters are meant to have somewhat ambiguous moral codes to begin with. Most of them seem to make their decisions from a selfish place with little regard to the collateral damage they might cause. I don't think Browne means for us to feel sorry for them, even if the things they deal with are a bit soul-crushing at times. The author did a great job at keeping the ball moving.. so your eyes never lingered too long on any one possibility. Though in the end.. the answers are compounded. I was vindicated in my beliefs to a point, but surprised by the addition of some other parts to the puzzle. There was one plot point that felt out of place, unnecessary.. as if it was thrown in simply for a 'gotcha' moment, but the story as a whole is a solid read if you enjoy a good mystery. (More reviews like this at Betwixt The Sheets.) (I received this title as an ARC. All opinions are mine and freely given.)
