  • A dark mystery!

    A newly separated woman moves into her new apartment and meet the frazzled single mother who lives in the rental above hers. A drunken evening spent together watching Netflix turns into something very dark. I’ll kill yours if you kill mine…The Pact. Depressed and grief stricken after multiple miscarriages, Maddie is separated from her husband and best friend of 20 years. He’s left her for the glamorous Gemma who has given both to Jemima, the baby he always wanted. Maddie meets her neighbor Jade and her young son Ben. She immediately longs to be in Ben’s life and accepts Jade’s friendship. Maddie’s emotions are close to the surface and she is still fighting off bouts of depression. When Jade proposes the Pact, Maddie laughingly accepts, thinking it is all a joke. It isn’t. Soon Maddie is mired in a dangerous situation without any means of escape. I loved Maddie. She has gone through so much but she tries to make the right decisions. Jade is not so likable. Manipulative and greedy, she uses her friendship with Maddie for her own gain. The story began slowly and seemed a bit unorganized but soon settled into a quick, suspenseful pace. 4 stars. Thank you to NetGalley, Aria and Aries and Dawn Goodwin for this ARC.

  • A thrilling read!

    Woah, this is one twisty domestic thriller that had me at it’s tagline “I’ll kill yours if you kill mine”. What a way to capture a reader’s attention! It certainly captured mine and there was no way I was going to pass up the opportunity of reading this book! Dawn Goodwin has put together an intriguing story that plays out like a lifetime movie, which I loved. You can not help but be wrapped up in its drama as it all unfolds in front of you. I was instantly caught up in its wicked web of deceit from start to finish and devoured every second of it. What I enjoyed the most about The Pact, is how Dawn Goodwin structured the story. She is a straight down the line writer and to the point, so there is no taking the story off track and it holds its momentum throughout. It also does not have any unnecessary filler chapters just to fulfil the word count. The Pact is a quick, intense and suspenseful read. Although I can’t say I particularly liked any of the characters, they have been very well written. It was the strength of the story and its execution that kept me wanting to flick the pages on my Kindle. There are some red herrings thrown in along the way and with some twists and turns, makes The Pact a super fun read.

  • Many a true word spoken in jest....?

    This novel has all the hallmarks of that master of suspense - Hitchcock. A few words spoken in alcohol fuelled jest - at least from the perspective of our hapless unwilling partner in criime - lead us on a journey of twists and turns galore, with quite a few unexpected reveals enroute. The final denouement is satisfactory,albeit not entirely unexpected. I really enjoyed this book and would like to thank both Netgalley and the Publishers for this ARC.

  • Skilfully Crafted - A Brilliant Read!

    Brilliant read! Pulled me in hook, line and sinker and then ... WOW! When we first meet Maddie, she's moving into her new home with help from Greg - her husband. Only he isn't moving in with her; oh no, he's moved on from Maddie. So she faces a lonely future, living all by herself. So when her upstairs neighbour, Jade, reaches out the hand of friendship Maddie grasps it firmly. Jade is in a similar situation being a single parent to her young son, Ben. As they swap stories of their past lives over a few glasses of wine, Jade suggest that they can help each other out - by killing the other's ex. Maddie's sober self shrugs off the idea - but what if Jade won't let it go? This is a thrilling and very unexpected read. Skilfully written, it's a very seductive story pulling the reader into Maddie's life and, by association, Jade and Ben's lives too. I had very uncharitable thoughts about both of them but as the book progressed I got rather fond of them and their struggles to cope with the hand life had dealt them. I was fully invested in this story but could never have predicted where it was heading! What a tale - gripping, exciting and so very satisfying at the very end. Highly recommended and worth every one of the five sparkling stars I'm so very happy to give it.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • New Twist on an Old Tale

    The Pact was a newish twist on an old tale. Two people with problems. Do they help each other out? The Strangers on a Train thing has been done in a lot of ways. This one had some twists, but you don't show the gun if someone isn't going to get shot. There were two incidents that stand out that just screamed "FORESHADOWING!" And the final twist was pretty darn obvious all the way through. This was really a sick and twisted tale. What kind of ex-wife hangs out with her ex and the woman he cheated on her with? The entire story she acts as if she is horrible and he is such a prince. Yeah, no. Yet, there is very little sign of any logical thought. Of course, there are reasons for that, but the entire premise was a little bit ridiculous. Setting that aside, the whole thing moved very quickly and was kind of funny. I'm just not sure I was meant to be laughing when I did. I hope at least some of them were. The book was OK. I read it in a single sitting when I had that rare time between responsibilities and it was a great little escape. I could see it on the screen as a campy, fun, twisted tale.

    Thanks for your feedback!
