The Ex Boyfriend by Rona Halsall

5 stars from me ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Seems I’m a little late to the Rona Halsall party as I think this is the first of her books that I’ve read.

Fair to say that it won’t be the last!

The Ex Boyfriend offers a complete distraction from the outside world – I read it in a day (a glorious day, grey and rainy outside copious mugs of tea and a warm blanket on the sofa – bliss).

This is a mind bending book – as soon as you are convinced you know what’s what it is all swept away and a new scenario appears to be the one. This makes it super fast paced and interesting. Yes, yes there are bits that seem a little fantastic but that just added to the tension for me.

I have no intention of giving spoilers – just know that if you like a psychological thriller then you will LOVE this book!

Blurb: He promised to love her until her dying day…

When Becca’s first love shows up on her social media feed, she can’t help but smile fondly. Once upon a time, Connor was the love of her life, and though it was over ten years ago, he’s always held a place in her heart.

Then he sends her a message. He sounds happy – still kind and funny, still living across the world in Australia. But he wants to know everything about her life now. How can Becca tell him the truth? About her workaholic husband, her stressful job, and the challenges of caring for her elderly father and her longed-for, adorable but exhausting three-year-old daughter Mia?

Becca hesitates, knowing she shouldn’t even reply. But Connor lives on the other side of the world. Just how dangerous can becoming friends again be?

It feels harmless. Until Mia gets sick – in a way that no one can explain. And it starts to become clear – someone will do absolutely anything to make sure Becca never escapes her past…
