Summer Reading Preview
Listen up, psychological thriller readers: I have a must-read book recommendation for you.
Yesterday I finished reading EXQUISITE by Sarah Stovell, and I'm still reeling from it. This blend of Fatal Attraction-meets-twisty thriller must be one of the most entertaining books I've read all year, and today I'm sharing 3 reasons why this book belongs on your TBR! I'll be sharing my full review of this book as part of its blog tour in June (my tour date is June 17th. to be specific!!) but in the meantime, here's a preview of why EXQUISITE by Sarah Stovell is a must-read.
But first things first: plot summary!
Bo Luxton has it all—a loving family, a beautiful home in the Lake District, and a clutch of bestselling books to her name. Enter Alice Dark, an aspiring writer who is drifting through life, with a series of dead-end jobs and a freeloading boyfriend. When they meet at a writers’ retreat, the chemistry is instant, and a sinister relationship develops. Or does it? Breathlessly pacey, taut and terrifying, Exquisite is a startlingly original and unbalancing psychological thriller that will keep you guessing until the very last page.
3 Reasons to Add EXQUISITE to your TBR
1. It's a thriller about writers. There's something perennially appealing about books that explore the literary world. EXQUISITE sets a psychological suspense plot within the world of writers, as it traces the progression of attraction to deadly obsession between a bestselling author and an aspiring author. Books are central to this thriller—and honestly, who could ask for a better combination?
2. It's tense and sexy. I'm not one for romance novels, and EXQUISITE definitely isn't a romance—but it is laced with sexual tension between its two main characters. I couldn't help but love the way the author illustrates the affection and obsession between these two. It's dark, taut, and sensual. Don't think of this as a romantic suspense novel - it's NOT that; think of it as a Fatal Attraction-like story where forbidden romance turns deadly.
3. It's mind-bending, twisty fun. This book is surprising and entertaining in all the right ways. With twists a plenty and genuine surprises in store, EXQUISITE kept me questioning everything until the very last page. (And even after the last page, let's be honest.) Readers looking for escapist, addictive psychological thriller reading will find their perfect match in EXQUISITE.
EXQUISITE will release in the U.K. on June 15th, and in the US on October 1st. (American readers, remember: you can always use our friend BookDepository to snag a copy before October!)
