Louise is a single mom, a secretary, stuck in a modern-day rut. On a rare night out, she meets a man in a bar and sparks fly. Though he leaves after they kiss, she’s thrilled she finally connected with someone.
When Louise arrives at work on Monday, she meets her new boss, David. The man from the bar. The very married man from the bar…who says the kiss was a terrible mistake, but who still can’t keep his eyes off Louise.
And then Louise bumps into Adele, who’s new to town and in need of a friend. But she also just happens to be married to David. And if you think you know where this story is going, think again, because Behind Her Eyes is like no other book you’ve read before.
David and Adele look like the picture-perfect husband and wife. But then why is David so controlling? And why is Adele so scared of him?
As Louise is drawn into David and Adele’s orbit, she uncovers more puzzling questions than answers. The only thing that is crystal clear is that something in this marriage is very, very wrong. But Louise can’t guess how wrong―and how far a person might go to protect their marriage’s secrets.
In Behind Her Eyes, Sarah Pinborough has written a novel that takes the modern day love triangle and not only turns it on its head, but completely reinvents it in a way that will leave readers reeling.
My Review: Behind Her Eyes is the new psychological thriller by Sarah Pinborough which has been heavily hyped as the next BIG book of 2017 and marketed with the hashtag #wtfthatending.
Now I don’t believe in spoilers in reviews but it’s quite fair to say that 99.9% of psychological thrillers contain twists so I feel comfortable saying WTF I did NOT see that coming! I feel like I’ve been reading this blindfolded because this entire story tricked me from page 1. Full of devious and twisted individuals this story is told via Adele, the beautiful and wealthy wife of David a successful psychiatrist and Louise, an overweight single mother who is David’s secretary. Switching from past and present this gripping, tense and darkly disturbing story will leave you breathless with a smirk on your face and definitely saying WTF! 5 STARS
