  • First Beverley Harvey

    This was my first book by Beverley Harvey. Beth Harding is an ordinary middle aged woman going about her ordinary life when she is suddenly struck with anxiety attacks. She is also having flashbacks that lead her to recognize that she has complete memory loss of certain parts of her past. Why? The flashbacks continue to get stronger and more revealing each time. I do enjoy mystery/thrillers and I did enjoy this book. This was definitely a slow start book for me but it picked up near the end. I would be interested to read more books by Beverley Harvey. Many thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for my ARC in exchange for my honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Brilliant!

    First thing, I love the way the book was structured with (almost) alternating chapters between Beth and Gemma; two close friends with compelling events going on behind their own closed doors which had me gripped from start to end. I read this almost 400 page book in 2.5 days and there was a reason for that. I cared big-time about the characters. It’s also true that I found both characters to be totally relatable. We’ve all either been a Beth or Gemma (maybe to a lesser degree) or we know a Beth or Gemma. If you don’t personally then I’m sure the #MeToo movement highlighted some key issues for you to ponder over. Every element of this book screamed real. The events and happenings weren’t over dramatised which only added to the authenticity. Some of the topics examined were PTSD and anxiety, and the brain’s power to shut disturbing life events away until triggers force them back into the forefront of the mind. ‘Close My Eyes’ is a powerful book and quite terrifyingly shows how a person’s world can be thrown into turmoil without warning. I loved the ending too! If you enjoy a real feeling psychological thriller that’s full of tension, mystery and will have you racing through every page, then ‘Close My Eyes’ is your book!

  • Twists and turns...

    Beth suddenly starts having panic attacks after a chance sighting of someone she grew up with. As she has no memories of an entire year during her teenage years, she starts seeing a therapist in order to discover why these panic attacks have started. Meanwhile, her best friend, Gemma, has the perfect life, or so it seems. However, Gemma's husband is gradually showing more erratic behaviour and becoming more aggressive and violent. With twists and turns throughout the book, the two main characters stories begin to intertwine. An easy, page turning and gripping read.

  • A great read

    Close My Eyes, the latest offering by Beverley Harvey, is one twisty tale that I could not get enough of! It is definitely just a one more chapter kind of read and like me, you may just find yourself losing time until there are no more chapters left to be read! I do love it when this happens. Beverley Harvey has created a thrilling and thought provoking tale that will have you hooked right from the prologue. I found it a fascinating look into the mind and how a chance sighting of someone can trigger repressed memories and throw a life into such turmoil. It delves into PTSD, abuse and rape to name just a few, which may be a trigger for some readers, but they have been dealt with sensitively. The characters have been well crafted, are believable and had me invested in them. I enjoyed the interchanging chapters between Gemma and Beth and the reader is given a great insight into each of their lives and struggles. Close My Eyes definitely gets the heart pumping and is very addictive. A well plotted, written, dark and character driven story, this is one that is a must read for the psychological suspense fans out there.

    Thanks for your feedback!
