It’s a funny thing reading to be scared, to be thrilled and
to be uncomfortable, but I do love a psychological thriller. I think it is the fact that what happens in a
book like Keep Her Secret by best selling author Mark Edwards, could happen to
any of us. Just one circumstance, and
things can change and all the values we hold dear, will change like a row of
dominos toppling to a conclusion you cannot predict.
This is a sinister tale that takes a rekindled college
romance into a very dark place as the couple face a nightmare.
About the book
Standing on top of a mountain in Iceland, Matthew can’t
believe his luck. Not only is he finally
taking the trip of his dreams but joining him for the trip is his college
girlfriend, Helena. He knew the moment
he saw her at the college reunion, after all those years, that he wanted a
second chance. While they have only been
together a week, he knows this is it, she is the one. That is until Helena takes one step back, trying
to get the perfect picture and falls …
As Matthew scrambles to the edge, he finds Helena
precariously hooked by her rucksack belt on a small ledge. Desperate to get help, Matthew nearly misses
Helena cry, ‘I deserve this’, just before she is rescued.
Suddenly the perfect girlfriend is not so perfect after all,
as Helena confesses her secret. All he
knows is that he will do anything he can to keep her save.
As the couple return to their normal lives, nothing is
normal at all. Someone has heard the confession
and arrives on the doorstep with an ultimatum.
I could go on, but I don’t want to give too many spoilers, as
this is a wonderful story with so many twists and turns that will have you gasping. Right until the end I felt surprised and
About the author
Mark Edwards writes books in which scary things happen to
ordinary people. He sold 4 million
books since his first solo novel The Magpies was published in 2013 and has
topped the bestseller lists numerous times.
In conclusion I can say perhaps I read psychological
thrillers because the stories are so absorbing and all consuming, it is like a
holiday from real life.
Have you read anything by this 4 million copy bestselling author? Keep Her Secret can be found on Amazon and I would imagine most book stores.
There was a huge part of me fighting against turning anything like fifty. It happens though and there is nothing we can do to fight it.
Well we can’t fight the chronology of years and minutes ticking by but we can stay fabulous. I try to be fabulous, despite having a few things I am fighting against like RA, Diabetes and Pernicious Anaemia.
This blog is simply about me embracing life. Food, make-up, fashion and more. My trials and tribulations. I hope you enjoy!
