But she insists it’s a mistake.
All Beth has ever wanted is a quiet life for her and her family. And that is what she has, until one evening a note is pushed through the door, with two words scrawled in menacing black ink;
As Beth’s neatly crafted life begins to unravel, an unseen menace torments her and those she loves. But who’s behind the threats?
Somebody is out to get Beth, but do they have the right woman?
Beth faces losing everything, and there is far more at stake than just her marriage…
WOW! WOW! WOW! What a corker!! I'm so glad to have picked up and read this brilliant book on the recommendation of two lovely facebook friends. This must be one of the most breathtaking, suspenseful books I've ever read.
A strange note posted through Beth's door is just the first in a number of weird things that start to happen to her and her family. Someone seems to have targeted them, for what reason neither Beth nor her husband, Charlie, seem to know. Beth tries to play it down as some joke by a colleague but when these weird things start getting progressively more serious and deadly, Charlie is understandably worried and decides to involve the police. But Beth doesn't seem as keen on doing so, why? Who is doing these things to Beth's family? And why?
When lies and secrets begin to see the light of day, the serene life as Beth, Charlie and their kids know it in their lovely farmhouse starts to crack at the seams, until ultimately it is completely blown apart. The first chapter in the book, taking place in the eighties, gives us a clue as to the origin of these strange occurrances.
This is THE kind of book I LOVE, a brilliant plot with great characters and non-stop tension, and having read it now, I'll make sure to get a copy of the author's other book. The suspense in 'Girl a' never wavers and is at a high level from start to finish. My mind was immediately invaded by myriad questions and I found myself gnawing my nails, desperately wanting to know what happens next from one chapter to the next. I really felt scared for Beth and her family coming to any harm. And when I thought I had sussed it all out, the author expertly pulled the carpet from under my feet and sent me flying with even more questions than before. The ending was totally unexpected and I was left open-mouthed. OMG!!
'Girl a' is an astonishingly brilliant book and I highly, highly recommend it! Will be surely looking for more books by this talented author. Well done!
