    Not As Advertised

    This book was labeled as a psychological thriller. The story was a decent one. Nothing hard to follow. The writing itself was good. I didn't feel "thriller" here. Instead it was more of the story of an abusive relationship and a controlling spouse. Nothing in here broke any new ground or was terribly surprising. A good story. Not a great story.

    Liar, liar pants on fire!

    Rating: 4.5 🍷 🍷 🍷 🍷1/2 Book: The Stranger in my Bed AVAILABLE NOW- Released YESTERDAY November 23, 2020 Author: Karen King Genre: Mystery & Thrillers ⚠️ Trigger warning Sipping Synopsis: An accident or attempted murder? Who is the dangerous one? Freya? Phil? After Phil loses the last 2 years of his life and coincidentally the entire time of his marriage, Freya thinks it could be a new start. But who is telling the truth? Should Freya stay or leave? I sped through this book because I just had to know who was telling the truth. I picked a side and stayed with it the entire time even though King made me second guess myself quite a few times. I was incredibly mad at pretty much every character in this book because of their actions. Final sipping thoughts: This book is such a gripping, full of suspense psychological thriller. If you have read a few thrillers in your time, then you probably will figure out a few of the twists but it does not lessen the journey’s enjoyment. The last page, the last reveal was everything!! I enjoyed reading the author’s note and her message to readers about the content of the book (not to give away anything). This is also King’s first thriller…slow clap!! This book is a must read that you can fly through!

    twists and turns

    You never really know anyone until you live with them. What mother did not give that advice? Freya learns the hard way and after 2 years of marriage to Phil, she realizes he was not what he appeared to be. How could she be so fooled? Phil is in a suspicious car accident and has no memory of the last 2 years. Should Freya go or she should stay and hope he has changed to the man she fell in love with. Oh Freya! Run would be my advice. Phil has secrets no doubt but will he remember them? The pages will fly by as you race to the surprising conclusion.

    Secrets in the closet?😯

    Kept me guessing🤔 Karen King's psychological thriller maintained the suspense right through to the end. But it could have been tighter and better. I felt that there was a good deal of repetition, especially with Freya, the female lead, and her thoughts as she continues to look for justifications for husband Phil's behavior. The story gives a strong, scary portrait of a controlling and manipulative husband. Phil is a real piece of work! Freya is actually a quite complex and realistic character. She second guesses herself, occasionally gives in to her own anger and rage, and hopefully looks to the bright side even when her instincts warn her not to. Usually I like when a story is told from alternating points of view. In this case, using multiple points of view reduced the suspense somewhat as it worked to eliminate speculation of guilt for some of the suspects. Thanks to publishers Bookouture and NetGalley for providing a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.

    Brill read!

    Ooh, this book opens with a huge dilemma. Freya has to make a choice in how she deals with the effects of Phil’s accident. The wrong decision could be deadly, but her husband looks so vulnerable. There are three main POV’s and a POV by an unknown character which added a big fat dose of mystery to the story. These chapters were sinister in nature and kept me scrolling through the pages to find out who was lurking in the shadows. The main themes in the book are gaslighting and domestic abuse, and the way these themes are brought to life through the characters and story give a realistic feel to it all. The themes are skilfully handled and some chapters actually saddened me. My thoughts were really with Freya through the whole book. It’s walking-on-eggshells tense throughout and if you love psychological thrillers, then it’s one to read! Thoroughly enjoyed. PS - I’m going to double lock the doors tonight - eek!
