I give it - 5/5
My review - This was such a beautiful story. I told myself I wasn't going to read it till next year, since it's not out till April but, it kept calling to me and I knew I had to read it and I am so glad I did. It was such a beautiful story. I was instantly gripped from the beginning. I wanted to know what was going on with Jessica and Adam.
10 years have passed since Jessica was with Adam. Certain events brought their relationship to a stop and Adam now lives in France and runs a successful business. They also have a son together. Jess is fine with Adam and William only seeing each other now and again but, with Jess's mother telling her she wishes they would have a better relationship that a boy needs his father. So, Jess agrees to spend the summer at Adam's lodges with William so they can have the whole Summer together. Seeing Adam again brings up old feelings the good and also the bad, the hurt he caused and seeing the way he is as a father makes Jess question why she is there.
Jess has the whole summer to figure out how she's feeling and she is also hiding a big secret. There is another reason she agreed to this trip. Adam hasn't been around Jess and William for awhile. Seeing them again makes him wonder what happened between them both. He's also hiding a secret, something from their past that will change them forever.
I really enjoyed this story. I really loved the relationship between William and Jess. They had a great mother/son relationship. You can tell they adore each other so much and even though they argue, they are always there for each other. Adam doesn't have much of a relationship with William, he doesn't really know how to be a father sometime but, he's learning.
This book really gets you in the feels. It hits different topics that I'm not going to spoil since it doesn't come out till April.
A beautiful, heartbreaking story about a family, a family who need this time together to heal old wounds and to finally come clean about their secrets. To do what's best for their family and also themselves.
Catherine has written a beautiful story that is centred around family. I really love that, that was one of the main focuses of this story. How you get to also read about their past and see what has happened and you just want to hug these characters.
The Perfect Victim
I give it - 5/5
My review - I love a good thriller. I love a good thriller when they have twists in the book it makes you gasp when you read it. This was that kind of book for me. I didn't know what to expect when reading this book only, that I bloody adored it. I only wanted to read a few chapters before I went on holiday and found myself reading the whole thing on the day I got it.
You know a book is good when it grips you from the beginning and you can't put it down. I just had to know what was going to happen. I guessed all the time throughout it and never once got it right.
In this book we follow two women. Sophie after the murder and Emily, leading up to the murder.
A body has been found and everyone is wondering what has happened. Emily and Charlie seem to live the best life, they look like the picture perfect couple, from the outside. Sophie works with Charlie and they have became really good friends. So, when Charlie is named a suspect in this murder Sophie and Emily don't believe it.
Until Charlie runs.
With no one hearing anything from Charlie. Sophie starts to question everything. Emily is acting strange, Charlie is missing, and there are things in his past she didn't even know about. Sophie starts to dig more into Charlie's past and the connection he had with this woman. How did he know her? Why has he ran? Did he do it? Sophie is about to learn a lot of things about the people she thought she knew and even herself. Can she figure out what happened? Or, is someone trying to stop her? Can she keep herself safe whilst trying to figure out the truth?
This book kept me on my toes. I just adored it. It was brilliant, gripping and chilling. I loved reading about Sophie and Emily. Two different women, both lead different lives but, have something that connects them. The deal with things a lot differently and this will test them.
A fantastic thriller that will have you gripped to the end.
