    Superb writing & addictive reading

    🐣 BOOK REVIEW 🐣 Thank you to @netgalley @suewatsonbooks @bookouture for my advanced ecopy of The Empty Nest. So firstly I love Sue’s books. Her romantic comedies literally make my stomach ache with laughter, she’s brilliant. I hadn’t read any of her thrillers, until now, good grief it was blooming marvellous! I was really apprehensive in case I just couldn’t get on board with the change in style & genre but by the end of the first chapter I knew it was going to be brilliant. I devoured it in 24 hours. It is unputdownable (is this a word?? It’s definitely a thing!). The chapters are short and tense. The writing completely conveys Kat’s (MC) sheer terror and desperation. As a mum myself my heart was pounding throughout the entire book. I had every single character in the frame at one point or another. Even Kat!! The relationships are so well conveyed, they are tight and complex. So many lies, so many secrets, oh man it’s truly fantastic!! It’s definitely going to be one of my top reads of the year 🙌🏼

    The Empty Nest

    Really good thriller. Having had 3 daughter's leave home I can identify with this. Nothing is quite the same and no matter how old they are the worry is always there. Having a child leave home and then for things to go horrifically wrong must be a nightmare. Would definitely recommend.

    Too much whining!

    I did not care for this book. Amy goes off to uni and helicopter mom Kat nearly goes out of her mind when Amy fails to call her. I got really tired of Kat's nonstop whining and telephoning/texting trying to find out where Amy was. I really had to struggle to finish this one. Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Loved!!!!!

    OMG I am so happy I decided to read this book by this author. This was the first book I read by this author and I couldn’t get enough of her. I can’t say enough good things about this author and her book. This book is about a daughter who goes off to Uni and a mother who can not let go of her precious daughter. Kat’s daughter went off to Uni and was supposed to come home one weekend but she can not get ahold of her and her daughter never made it home. Did something bad happen to her or is she overreacting like she has in the past? I want to start off by saying that I absolutely loved this book. At first I wasn’t sure what to make of the mother Kat. She was overbearing and very much a helicopter mom. She was always wanting her daughter to call her every minute to know what is going on. By the end of the book I was so so happy that she was this way and never gave up wanting to know what happened to her precious daughter. She would move mountains if she could just to find her her. I envied their mother daughter bond in the end. Also, I couldn’t believe the ending and what truly happened to Kat’s daughter. There were so many twists and turns in this book but the ending blew my mind. The whole book made sense and you felt bad for Kat who had everyone manipulating her. You couldn’t trust anyone even your closest friends. All I can is what a great book this was. Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Overall, it was good

    The Empty Nest by Sue Watson is a psychological thriller. First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Bookouture, 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) Kat Ellis is a worried mother.  Her 18-year old daughter did not come home from university on the weekend as planned.  It is Sunday, and Kat hasn't heard from Amy since yesterday.    She doesn't understand why no one believes there's a problem.  It's one day.  Yes, Kat may have over-reacted to things in the past, but it was always because she loved her daughter, and she had to protect her.  Yes, she may have lied in the past, but it was always to keep Amy safe.   Yes, she goes a little overboard occasionally, but none of that matters now.  But Kat is sure that something awful has happened this time. Amy would never abandon her plans with her mother, not without at least calling or texting.  Amy tells her mother everything, doesn't she? Kat's husband, Richard, is trying to calm Kat down, but to no avail. Kat's best friend Zoe is also trying to keep Kat calm.  She and her daughter Jodie know that Kat can "crowd" her daughter a little too much.  They aren't having much luck keeping Kat under control either. When it turns out that Amy really is missing, secrets are going to be revealed.  Apparently everyone is keeping some....and lying.   My Opinions:   First, I have to tell you that I really disliked most of the characters in this book.  I guess Richard and Josh were okay, if a little bland.  Kat was over-bearing to the extreme, Zoe was overly sympathetic, and Jodie just whined.  Then there was Amy, who we mostly heard about in a round-about way, but she didn't appeal either -- sounded like a mean, egotistical child.  So I couldn't relate, or enjoy any of the characters, which made the book a hard read for me.  As well, my feelings for the characters did not change from beginning to end. However, the plot, the writing, and the twists, were all good -- if a little predictable.   So overall, the book was "okay" in my opinion.  This one just didn't have the spark that Sue Watson's "Our Little Lies" had.  Although I found it more than a little annoying, I am sure others will love it.  I will also continue to be interested in books by this author.
