    1) I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh

    WHY I LIKE IT: With a gob-smacking plot twist near the middle of the novel and another towards the end, this is a thriller that checks ALL the boxes for me. A very clever plot, charactisation, setting, writing…. Kudos to Clare Mackintosh for a spectacular and very impressive debut which will be on my list of “Best Thrillers EVER Read”.

    2) Little Black Lies by Sharon Bolton

    WHY I LIKE IT: An intricately plotted story of how one moment of thoughtlessness can lead to tragedy that impacts upon countless people, Little Black Lies is filled with a pervading sense of loss. There are many surprises in store for the reader. With solid, empathetic characters and jaw-dropping plot revelations, it is a novel that will be appreciated by anyone who admires crime fiction with a psychological bent. It contains all of the elements of a great thriller: betrayal, secrecy, passion, despair, fear – and Sharon Bolton uses these elements in a seamless way that grabs you and won’t let go until the very, very end. Wow! Read my full review, HERE.

    3) Under Your Skin by Sabine Durrant

    WHY I LIKE IT: Under Your Skin by Sabine Durrant drips with tension. Masterfully constructed with Gaby as narrator, the novel is a page-turner in the truest sense. This psychological thriller is everything you want in a novel. Good characterisation, tight plot, red herrings and a surprising and disturbing ending. Highly recommended! Read my full review, HERE.
