A complex psychological thriller, I couldn't stay away from it. This book did perhaps take me a little while for me to get into as I acclimatised myself with the writing style. It is very descriptive in places, if not slightly 'overwritten,' some of the smallest details so intricate, I got lost in the wordiness... but this was a temporary reaction. Every spot of rain, every tear, every emotional response and consequent reaction is important. The story blew me away.
Without giving too much away, there was a character that shocked me. Written in second person singular, I admire the way this author got right inside the head of controlling psychopath.
Will definitely be reading more by Clare Mackintosh.
The market has been drenched with books that promise you a twist you'll never see coming yet often leave you wondering what it was! The 'twist' in this one is evident from the word go and you're well aware of whose viewpoint you're reading from. However, if you take that away and just follow the plot you'll find decently written characters whose development you're genuinely interested in. I liked the fact that the 'baddie', who we're introduced to later, is in the first person too which provides for a well-written dark and twisty insight into a character, who is paramount to the story. Some cliches make you groan. But they're realistic all the same. There's no need for the final 'twist'. Its far too neat and, in my view, the baddie was already so vile that it would have had more impact if there had been no link between them and the victim. This character needs no reason to behave the way they do. Overall, a good effort with some great moments, sadly let down by the promise of a shattering revelation that doesn't deliver.
Overall a decent enough page-turning thriller, but nothing that is really original or outstanding.

I did figure out some part of the twist at the end. But that doesn't mean that I didn't enjoy reading it. Claire Mackintosh's writing is very easy flowing. The pace of the story is on point. This was my second book by her after I See You. She certainly has a habit of writing open ended mysteries (the good kind) and leaving the rest to the reader's imagination.
WARNING - SPOILERS
I very much enjoyed the first portion of the book. The initial car accident and the immediate fallout were compelling and kept me turning the page. However, after the main character's move to the cottage and integration into village life was well established, the book became too much of a run-of-the-mill romance. Frankly, I did not care about her budding relationship. Fortunately, just as I was beginning to lose interest, the major "twist" in the plot was revealed. The twist, as others have mentioned, caught me completely by surprise and did have me flipping back to see whether I had missed something. Unfortunately, after the initial excitement of the twist had worn off, I found the main character unrelatable, and the newly introduced "villain" to be over the top and not realistic. Had I known that this really boiled down to a domestic violence piece, I likely would have passed.
I pulled it out of my wishlist though I usually have a large number of books in there and forget what they're all about. I read the back of the book and couldn't figure out why I even had it in my wishlist to begin with. Checked the reviews and was even more put off by starting it. But it quickly caught my interest and I found I couldn't put it down! Highly recommend.
The story itself is a bit strange, to say the least, alternating brilliant passages and not so great ideas.
I didn't like the fact that we, as readers, are manipulated by the writer; it's a trick that can be seen as clever but that I found a bit easy.
The first half of the book is slow paced, verging on boring if not for the amazing writing and the fact that we "know" there is something more coming up. Then, it picks up speed and becomes really gripping. I've been overwhelmed by emotions a couple of times, and you just don't want to put the book down.
I would easily have left a 5-star review if not for chapter 49 at the end. I thought it was totally unnecessary and exaggerated, missing an important element (the dog). It left me dubious and disappointed after such excellent chapters right before.
Sometimes, it's better to let things slow down after a climax than try to create always more and more suspense and push things too far...
Eso si luego te atrapa hasta el final.
I have been enjoyed this read this summer. It catched me, not from the beginnig, but from roughly 40% to the end. Perhaps, as far as Im concerned It is a little bit slow in the first half, but the twist is so incredibe that it was worthwhile. I highly recommend this book. Im sure you dont regret it.
2 1/2 stars
One of the best book I have read in 2016. Love the concept. This book is really a page-turner. While reading this, I smiled, I cried and at the time when I finished this book, I was emotional.
I was shocked when i finished the First Chapter. Very well written. Looking forward to get a copy of "I See You". Hope that I'd like that one as well.
If you guys are planning to read this, go ahead. You will love this book and enjoy it as well.
