ABOUT THE BOOK:
Two very different lives.
A chance to escape…or is it?
Her life isn’t as perfect as you think…
Former actress Madi needs to escape from her lonely London life. She’s started to forget things and has the strongest sense she is being watched…
Prue feels suffocated by her claustrophobic village life, especially when she is humiliated in the most public way. Now Prue is desperate for anonymity –whatever the cost.
Meet Prue and Madi – strangers who need a little break and to “get away”, so they decide to house swap. Madi lives in the city, and needs to unwind and get away from everything, so decides to live in Prue’s cottage in the country. Prue wants to live in the city and explore it’s surroundings, so decides to move into Madi’s place for a bit.
While she is there, strange things are happening – things are moved and placed somewhere she knows she didn’t put them but thinks she is slowly losing her mind and being forgetful. Little does she know that she is being watched and someone is entering Madi’s place, unbeknownst to Prue. Who is this person that is messing with Prue and what do they want? Prue finds herself thinking about someone back home by the name of Joe. She had to escape for a while from her town, but what happened that was so terrible that she felt the need to flee?
I enjoyed the suspense of it all in this story, and reading the novel from alternating POV’s. Parts are told from Prue’s side and parts are told from Madi’s side. I also enjoyed the chapters that were told from the “unknown” character that was playing mind games with Prue, thinking of course that it was Madi. Afterall, how were they to know that Madi and Prue had chosen to do a house swap?
So much suspense I loved it.
MY RATING: 4/5 stars
