    A Cracking Read!

    Believe it or not this is my first book by Kerry Wilkinson, though I have no idea why I have never chosen to read any of his books before now. I'm delighted to have rectified this and I thoroughly enjoyed Close to You, an engrossing tale of mystery, chills and suspense. The book is narrated by Morgan, who thinks her absent husband is stalking and tormenting her. She is confused by this as she killed him and disposed of his body and all his belongings two years before. She has seen his picture in the background of a recent photo taken at an awards ceremony and her best friend claims she may have caught sight of him. Kerry Wilkinson has a very appealing style of writing and the characters he created though not hugely likeable, were very believable, giving me a great sense of apprehensiveness and foreboding. I liked the fluidity between past and present and I found Close to You very readable, the various unfoldings and revelations making this book very gripping. The story-line was absolutely fantastic and the action and suspense was kept at a maximum level as was the pacing. In this tale of eeriness, tension and murder, Kerry Wilkinson wrapped everything up very neatly in a thrilling, unexpected ending which was rather satisfying. This was an absolute pleasure to read and even if the plot had been less stimulating I would have devoured these pages with equal gusto and enthusiasm. I’ll certainly be looking out for Kerry Wilkinson’s next book, as well as discovering this author's repertoire of previous novels. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my own request, from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

    A good read

    This is such a good premise for a book. A young woman studies a photograph taken at a recent event and notices a face in the back that fills her with dread, it’s her ex-husband and the reason she’s so shocked is that he’s dead and she knows because...she killed him. What follows is a cracking read with chapters titled ‘now’ and ‘then” or ‘why’? And it definitely kept my interest, as, I couldn’t wait to see how things were unravelling. However, for me, the positives are slightly outweighed by how naive the lead character is in falling for her husband. This made much of the read very frustrating. Overall, a good read - 3* with a satisfying ending that I didn’t see coming. Thanks to Bookoutre, NetGalley and the author for the opportunity to preview.

    A great read

    Having only discovered Kerry’s work this year, this is only the second book I have read of his and it is a beauty! Reading the blurb, it ticked all the boxes for me, but what really got my interest more than anything was the sentences “He didn’t disappear two years ago and he’s not a missing person. I know that for a fact because I’m the one who killed him” how good is that! I couldn’t wait to get stuck into it and when I did it was one hell of a read full of mystery, deceit, secrets and more twists and turns than a rollercoaster ride! Kerry has crafted a chilling plot that see’s main character Morgan’s life unravel when she see a photograph of a man that bears a striking resemblance to her ex husband David, who people believed has disappeared. Knowing that she killed him, two years ago, Morgan is at a loss as to how it’s even possible that he could be alive. But when strange things start happening that all can be related back to David, Morgan starts to question whether or not David was really dead the night she disposed of his body. Whether it was intentional or not, for me I did not like any of the characters in this book. I don’t mean this in a negative way at all as I think they have been perfectly written this way and are very believable in the roles they portray. Morgan as the unreliable narrator is such a complex character who is extremely cold. Circumstances should have made me warm to her but I really struggled to sympathise with her on many occasions. David was unlikeable right from the beginning and as the story progressed that feeling became stronger and stronger. Told through alternating chapters from the present to the past, the tension and suspense that Kerry creates that builds throughout the story could have moved at a quicker pace, but it is all worthwhile when you get to the big reveal. I really did not see how it all unfolds coming. Kerry definitely knows his stuff in this genre and has a gift of keeping the reader hanging on to every written word in the lead up to the conclusion. It has been a pleasure to read and review Close to You which I recommend. Thank-you to NetGalley, Bookouture and Kerry Wilkinson for allowing me to read an advanced copy of Close to You which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily
