You never know who’s watching…
Corinne’s life might look perfect on the outside, but after three failed IVF attempts it’s her last chance to have a baby. And when she finds a tiny part of a doll house outside her flat, it feels as if it’s a sign.
But as more pieces begin to turn up, Corinne realises that they are far too familiar. Someone knows about the miniature rocking horse and the little doll with its red velvet dress. Someone has been inside her house…
How does the stranger know so much about her life? How long have they been watching? And what are they waiting for…?
Not As Good As I Had Hoped . . .
Having read quite a few ‘gentler’ novels lately, I was looking forward to getting my teeth into something a bit stronger, especially when I read there was a good twist.
However, due to the minimal amount of characters in this book, I worked out fairly quickly who were the guilty parties and what was going on – despite not being the kind of reader who usually thinks ahead, normally taking a story as it unfolds in front of me. From then on it was just a matter of completing the book to check my deductions were correct.
I’m quite disappointed that it was so easy and obvious. A few more characters to pad out the possibilities would have helped, but as it stands it doesn’t come very high on my list of good reads.
I received an arc via NetGalley in exchange for my honest, original and unbiased review.
