What is true friendship really worth?
A psychological thriller that will draw you in and keep you guessing!…
When Emily receives an e-mail from her estranged childhood friend, Ali, she instantly looks forward to reading what it has to say. She hasn’t seen or heard from Ali in a very long time and hopes that they can begin to rekindle the perfect friendship they once had.
But when Emily opens the e-mail, she finds it isn’t the friendly message she had hoped for. Instead, it is a desperate plea for help from Ali to tell Emily she could be in danger.
Growing increasingly concerned for Ali’s safety, Emily is forced to return to the seaside town where she and Ali had grown up. The same town that she had fled from over fifteen years ago, when she had sworn she would never return.
Once back there, Emily is quickly thrown into a game of cat and mouse, where she must follow the clues to help her old friend. But time is against her and she is constantly looking over her shoulder.
It appears Emily isn’t alone, and must hurry before her past finally tracks her down…
I first came across this author after reading her debut novel, Sleep Peacefully, which I loved, so was very excited to see she had a new novel out which I bumped right to the top of my to be read pile.
At 186 pages, See You Soon did not take me long at all to read and I literally devoured it within a few hours.
Crime/psychological thrillers have got to be some of my all time favourite reads. I just love the buzz and tension that builds inside of you as you are reading them and See You Soon ticked all the boxes.
Even though Emily returns to her hometown in search of her childhood best friend, it is obvious that Emily also has some things in her past that she would rather keep to herself.
I was really intrigued with Ali’s disappearance and was just as confused about it all as Emily was. Even though Emily hasn’t seen Ali for many years, you can tell how much she cares about her and regrets letting their friendship fizzle out.
I loved the setting of the story in a small town where everyone knows each other and it isn’t long before Emily is bumping into quite a few old faces from her past.
See You Soon had me gripped from beginning to end. For some reason I thought I had the whole thing worked out and was feeling pretty smug with myself. Even though I thought I had it all solved, I still really enjoyed reading the story and was happily waiting for everything to be revealed and for me to be proven right.
Well, I have to say the author totally floored me when I realised I was well and truly wrong with my calculations. Totally jaw dropping stuff which had me uttering “no way” more than a couple of times.
NC Marshall really is an up and coming author who is one to watch out for. If you haven’t read any of her books yet, you really should give them a try.
Many thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.
See You Soon is out now and available to purchase from Amazon.
