    Wow!!

    Wow! This thrilling, shocking, intense novel grabbed me from the very beginning. I quickly became caught up in this intricate psychological thriller. I was constantly guessing throughout and just when I thought I had the mystery solved another twist would occur taking me in an entirely different direction. It was brilliantly written and has a well thought out plot with an ending that you won't see coming. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I highly recommend it. I received this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review.

    An excellent page turner.

    Thanks to Netgalley, HarperCollins / Avon and Olivia Isaac-Henry for the opportunity to preview this book. This is such a good read. A twin's sister is missing and then her body found. The book takes us through all the family members as well as friends, all of whom appear to have secrets. It's so well told, with the story moving from present day to the time of the murder and yet, it's never confusing and has a good few twists and turns. An excellent page turner. 4* read.

    Do You Ever Get Over a Disappearance?

    Tess is living a pretty sad life. Still living with her ex until the lease runs out. Failing at work. Out all night drinking. And then the call she has always hoped never would come. Her twin sister, missing since they were fourteen, has been found. Tess has to travel back to see her family and face the investigation into her family and herself that began 20 years ago. Tess learns that everyone has something to hide, everyone keeps secrets, and she doesn't really know anyone as much as she thought she did. Not even herself. This was a one day, did not put it down book. Parts seemed very familiar: a 30 something woman who is drinking herself out of everything important in her life (do so many people really drink straight vodka a bottle at a time?), returning home and struggling with everyone you know seeming to keep secrets, young girls desperate to grow up and get out. But the fact is that it was intriguing and touching. I look forward to more from the author and appreciate the opportunity to read this book before publication.

    A twisty thriller

    When Tess’ sister Edie disappeared 20 years ago, the case went cold. Now her body has at last been discovered and Tess travels back to her hometown to find out what really happened to her. Who can she really trust from her past? Someone You Know was a story that certainly kept me guessing – there are a lot of suspects and some completely believable red herrings throughout. I kept flipping through potential suspects in my head, panicking when someone in the book had the same idea I’d had before the end as that meant there was no way I was right! The ending managed to surprise me twice which I enjoyed. I also liked the way that each character’s motives were fully explored and they were well-rounded in their own right. No-one felt unrealistic or purely a suspect for the sake of it which was what made it so hard to guess. I liked the split timelines in the narrative – we get Tess’ detective work in the present and alternately her twin sisters perspective 20 years ago before she disappeared. Tess is a slightly unreliable narrator with her own memory problems of the event and Edie’s chapters only give away the bare minimum to keep the story progressing. Olivia Isaac-Henry drip feeds you information in a way to keep the pace up and this technique left you intrigued as to what would happen in each girls story without one feeling more important than the other. I would say that the plot did feel a little slow in the middle – perhaps some elements could have been cut down, but it did lead to a big pay off in the end. Overall I enjoyed Someone You Know, it’s a twisty thriller that keeps you guessing throughout, I just found the pace dragged a little in the middle. Thank you to NetGalley and Avon Books UK for the chance to read the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
