    Loooooong

    2.5 stars I Know You’re There by Sarah Simpson is a psychological thriller. First, let me thank NetGalley, the both publishers Aria and Simon & Schuster, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. My Synopsis: (No major reveals, but if concerned, skip to My Opinions) The four residents of a house are receiving rather vague and suspicious notes left in their mailboxes. The notes could be construed as nothing, except the more they thought about the contents, the more the residents realized they could be seen as threats, and that someone is definitely aware of their individual pasts. Mark is the landlord of the building, but lives elsewhere. He is Natalie’s rather possessive boyfriend, but neither has trusted the other with their secrets. The residents include: Natalie, 30, had a horrendous childhood, making her suspicious of most men. Her father ended up in prison, but now he is out, and wants to resume his relationship with his daughter. He is sending her letters, but is he also responsible for the notes? Morwenna, 54, lost her husband in a car accident when he was only 38, and has a son who she seldom sees now that he is married. She tries to be a good friend to Natalie, but she has her own secrets. Nigel, 40-ish, is rather reclusive. He keeps to himself, and tries to stay away from the others. His secrets are buried deep. Daniel, 28, is a rather naïve and gullible young man who seems to be afraid of his own shadow. The loss of his sister when he was 10 has continued to haunt him. He has a “caretaker”, Tommy, who was hired by his father to look in on him from time to time. He has secrets too. They have become somewhat of a family, but none of them share what matters most. My Opinions: A story of secrets, of lies, of fears. A story of neighbours, none of which are what they seem. The premise of this book was really interesting. Unfortunately, it fell flat for me. It took much too long to get to anything exciting. I admit to putting it down a number of times and struggling to pick it back up. Told mostly in the voices of Natalie and Morwenna, with occasional chapters from the others, the story unfolds slowly….very slowly. I didn’t particularly like any of the characters. Natalie, our heroine, just came across as a whiny woman who drank too much. I may be in the minority on this one, but I just didn’t enjoy it.

    Captivating, addictive and exhilarating!

    I was hooked on this book from the first chapter and found myself not being able to put it down. The story is a real page-turner and every revelation was a complete shock! Having read the author's first two books, this book certainly lived up to expectations, I'd even go further to say they were completely exceeded! The author has a true knack of making the characters so believable, I almost felt like I was living in this world with them and the story was beautifully told, with the description of the scenery executed perfectly. I would never have guessed the ending of the book and will be recommending it to all my friends and family. A definite must read for your holidays this summer!

    Disappointing

    This book was a big disappointment. Very long and boring and characters that weren’t likeable. They all acted very immature and childish. The title is what grabbed my attention but the storyline fell flat. Would not recommend. Thank you netgalley for letting me give an honest review of this book.

    Slow Burning & Mounting Tension!

    I'm quite worn out after reading this; my brain has been in utter turmoil! Natalie lives in one of four flats in St Ives, Cornwall where the neighbours have become friends. For the first time in her life, she feels safe in her home and life is good. The further into the story we get, the more aware we become that secrets are definitely in the air and Natalie isn't the only one with doubts about her past . When each of the them are on the receiving end of anonymous notes, their fears begin to rise to the surface. But who can possibly the doing this .. and can they each live with the terror these notes are instigating? This is a very different novel from Sarah Simpson, and I feel her psychological experience coming to bear throughout. Easing the reader in gently, this is a slow burning novel with the tension mounting slowly but surely. I had plenty of empathy with Natalie's tremulous  reaction to the notes she received; there is nothing worse than letting your head have free rein over a personal problem. Haven't we all been guilty of fretting? Each resident has something to be afraid of and their nerves become more shredded each day. As the tension mounts - and unable to see where it was heading - I found myself turning the page almost before I have reached the end of each one, such was my sense of urgency to get to the bottom of things. And when it came, I was breathless with expectation and completely taken aback with the twist. Completely floored! But, finally, it all made sense and I'll sleep much better tonight for knowing that it's all sorted out. This author has certainly produced a stunning and completely different book from her others, and it raises her profile considerably. Absolutely a five star read!

    Brilliant read with a sinister feel.

    Certainly deserving of 5 stars. A well written book that keeps you guessing to the end. You really feel you know the characters but there is a creepy feeling lurking in the house.
