It's refreshing to read a book that focuses on women (and conversations two friends might really have) as opposed to a male writer's view of how women relate to each other. As others have said, this is a must read. Read it now and tell your friends. You'll be doing them a favor.
It's hard to believe that this is the authors debut novel, the writing is exemplary and the concept is pure genius! The story is the ultimate in trust between three characters and how their actions will eventually destroy them all, emotionally and physically. It is told from the point of view of two of the characters, Shona and Valentina and they tell their stories with one person in common, Mikey.
I guessed early on what was happening but even then I didn't see the full extent of what was going to unravel until it hit me squarely between the eyes and I was totally gripped from start to finish.
Valentina is a book which makes you question how trustworthy people can really be and that you should always be one step ahead of everyone, whoever they are.
I can't wait to see what comes next from this brilliant author.
This is a psychological thriller that illustrates the mental and emotional anguish caused by secrets, lies, deception, selfishness, and manipulation.
The story is told from two perspectives. Shona, a new mother, struggling with loneliness and isolation. And Valentina, a confident, outgoing mother who befriends her.
The prose is clear, precise, and remarkably descriptive. The characters are multifaceted, flawed and absorbing. And the plot is dark, riveting, and suspenseful.
This is a really well written, tension-filled, debut novel with an ending that takes the definition of karma to a whole other level.
This is such a cleverly woven story that literally swept me off my feet.
This is one of those stories that to start with I thought I totally knew where it was going, so I sat back and settled into it thinking I would enjoy it for what it was.
Well I have to say I was well and truly gob smacked when I realised I was totally wrong. My only problem was, even though I loved that it was so different to how I thought it was going to go, for the first time ever, I didn’t know if I wanted to carry on as I started to get a really uncomfortable feeling in the pit of my stomach. It started to become a bit like watching a horror film, where you know something bad is going to happen but you just don’t know exactly what or when, so you just have to sit back and wait for it to happen.
I have to take my hat off to the author for making me feel that way as that was how wrapped up I was with the whole storyline and characters and there was more than one occasion I felt chilled to the bone.
It is really hard to go into the actual story itself in any great detail as I think it will give to much away and I don’t want to spoil it for anyone else so I’m not going to say anything other than this is a quietly brilliant novel and a must read for any fans of a clever psychological thriller.
Many thanks to Rosalie at Blackbird Digital Books for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
