Rock Paper Scissors by Alice Feeney #BookReview #HQ #NetGalley #4.5*

Soon to be a Netflix series from the producer of The Crown

The phenomenal new thriller from the bestselling author of Sometimes I Lie

Ten years of marriage.
Ten years of secrets.
An anniversary they’ll never forget.

Adam and Amelia are spending the weekend in the Scottish Highlands. The remote location is perfect for what they have planned.

But when their romantic trip takes a dark turn, they both start to wonder – can they trust the one they’re with?

Because every couple tells little white lies. Only for Adam and Amelia, the truth is far more dangerous.

Original & Suspenseful!

Just when you think you know what’s going on – you find out you haven’t a clue!

Adam and Amelia are off to spend the weekend in the Scottish Highlands. Married for ten years, they are heading for a remote home but when they get there it’s not exactly what they was expected – in fact, it’s not at all romantic; but then, perhaps neither of them are what was expected either . . .

I got into this story pretty quickly; the anniversary letters written over the years was a good way to catch up on what had gone previously and, although there were a few little implausible niggles here and there, they all disappeared into the ether as the story advanced. Creepy and atmospheric in places, this was definitely a character-led tale and one which grabbed me by the throat. With twists and turns galore, the revelations shocked me to the core. Definitely didn’t see them coming! An original and suspenseful novel which I’m happy to recommend and give 4.5*.

My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley and for my spot on this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
