Between You And Me by Lisa Hall. Read February 2016.

A gripping psychological thriller with a level of tension that will leave you breathless.

“They say every marriage has its secrets.
But no one sees what happens behind closed doors.
And sometimes those doors should never be opened …
Sal and Charlie are married. They love each other. But they aren’t happy. Sal cannot leave, no matter what Charlie does – no matter how much it hurts.”

Cleverly plotted and with a writing style that keeps the story moving at a fast pace, it’s hard to believe that this is a debut novel. I was hooked from page one and this was one of those books where I was thinking about the characters even when I wasn’t reading. The author describes their unbearable domestic situation perfectly and even minor characters are believable and well developed.

I did anticipate the twist that the book’s tagline says “you won’t see coming” but that didn’t detract from my enjoyment at all. This book is noticeably shorter than others I’ve read in the genre.

Highly recommended for psychological thriller fans an anyone who enjoys a real page turner.

Thank you to the publisher, via Netgalley, for the advance copy e-book to review.
