B A Paris totally knocks it out of the park with this enthralling psychological thriller.
Alice was an interesting character, some people really just do not get a good run of luck in life do they! ‘The Circle’ sounds as equally claustrophobic and dangerous as it does delightful and elite. From the very beginning when Alice and Leo move there things don’t seem quite right – but then they rapidly accelerate downwards into really rather wrong!
Her neighbours – how can any of them afford to live there when they never seem to do any work? – also seem to be an equal mix of lovely and awful. There are a lot of contrasts in this book, layered with a lot of misguidance and huge dollop of mistrust!
I was utterly hooked as the story began to unravel, although Alice was a damn site braver than I would have been as I don’t think I could have stayed in the house as long as she did.
The Therapist is a cleverly constructed, multi-layered, psychological thriller that will keep you guessing and make you trust no-one…
Blurb: When Alice and Leo move into a newly renovated house in The Circle, a gated community of exclusive houses, it is everything they’ve dreamed of. But appearances can be deceptive…
As Alice is getting to know her neighbours, she discovers a devastating secret about her new home, and begins to feel a strong connection with Nina, the therapist who lived there before.
Alice becomes obsessed with trying to piece together what happened two years before. But no one wants to talk about it. Her neighbors are keeping secrets and things are not as perfect as they seem…
It feels like its been a while since I read a book by BA Paris. I’ll definitely be checking this one out. Great review!
