Into the Darkest Corner....

I have never felt so tense whilst reading a book!!! This is a seriously scary book dealing with domestic violence but it is a real page turner.

Catherine has been enjoying single life for long enough to know a good catch when she sees one. Gorgeous, charismatic and spontaneous, Lee seems almost too perfect to be true. But there is a dark side to him and his erratic, controlling and sometimes frightening behaviour means that Catherine is increasingly isolated. Driven into the darkest corner of her world, she plans a meticulous escape. Four years later, struggling to overcome her demons, Catherine dares to believe she might be safe from harm. Until one phone call changes everything...

Another vote for this one!!  You really get drawn into the main character's life and the stress she has to deal with on a daily basis...genuinely hold-your-breath tense!  :o  I would go so far as to say this was my book of the year last year!

Her new book is out on 15th March... http://www.amazon.co.uk/Revenge-Tide-Elizabeth-Haynes/dp/0956792642/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_1

Not sure if the synopsis appeals to me or not!  I think I'll wait and see what the reviews are like.  (Or wait for my mother to read it first and give it the thumbs up or down!  ;D )

Into the Darkest Corner was so good that I don't know if anything else can match it! I will give this one a try though. It sounds a bit like a Martina Cole type storyline and I'm not particularly keen on her books.

We shall see!

I used to like Martina Cole but her last few books have been very samey and I've gone off her a bit now.  If this is anything like her earlier books then it'll probably be worth a read for me!

Just bought this on your recommendation.

Looking forward to reading this but maybe not on my own on a dark night from what you say.

Raine, it really made me feel so tense. Ribena felt the same. I still couldn't wait to get back to it though.

As I said before it was the best book of its genre that I read last year. Terrific!

I only hope now that it meets your expectations. Please let us know!

I will let you know but think I may leave it until we come over for Easter.
I will have more time to really get into it then.

So that's something else to look forward to!
