  • Suspenseful and Atmospheric

    Jam packed with suspense, this book quickly reeled me in. Dinner was delayed so I could finish it! The plot is compelling and incredibly twisty...and twisted. Sculptor Kate and barrister Michael are married and have just gone through another devastating miscarriage. After losing the baby things fall apart all around them and keep getting worse and worse until reaching a crescendo where something has got to give. This book is about choices...mostly poor...and reactions to those choices which is when true colours are revealed. And these choices affect everything and everyone around this couple. Out of nowhere Kate is told Michael's daughter from his previous marriage would be living with them. Kate understandably doesn't know what to think about this. Imogen is an interesting character as we discover. So is the story. I could clearly picture it in my mind's eye and couldn't wait to see how it ended. Several other characters, including dogs, enter the scene as well. I couldn't relate to any of them, nor did I like any of them (except the dogs!). But I don't need to like characters to enjoy a book. Whilst I loved the tension and suspense, there are aspects which did not appeal to me as much such as some relationships and tropes. There are adult situations, some of which are disturbing. Some scenes are a bit choppy and seem extraneous. My sincere thank you to Canelo and NetGalley for the privilege of reading this atmospheric psychological thriller!

  • YES!! Just the domestic thriller I was looking for

    This book is described as 'emotional and suspenseful' and that is SPOT ON! Carne has drawn such wonderfully textured and intriguing characters. They all have their fair share of secrets and I was constantly on tenterhooks waiting for them to be revealed. Bravo for a brilliant piece of domestic suspense.

  • Very good book

    I was feeling sorry for the husband until it came out that she was being belittled by him! I really enjoyed the book even though it bothered me not knowing what would come up next! I hope there will be a following book about these characters.

  • The Stepmother

    This was my first read of a book from this author and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was thrilling all the way through. I look forward to reading another of her books.
