Sometimes your first love won’t let you go…
When Lou Wandsworth ran away to France with her teacher Mike Hughes, she thought he was the love of her life. But Mike wasn’t what he seemed and he left her life in pieces.
Now 32, Lou discovers that he is involved with teenager Chloe Meadows. Determined to make sure history doesn’t repeat itself, she returns home to confront him for the damage he’s caused.
But Mike is a predator of the worst kind, and as Lou tries to bring him to justice, it’s clear that she could once again become his prey…
The million copy Sunday Times bestseller returns with a gripping psychological thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat.
The Fear is without a doubt a brilliant title for this book. As a parent it put the fear of god into me reading about Mike and how he grooms girls. It was scary to see how easy someone can prey on someone so young and vulnerable. It was also so easy to see how a young adolescent would fall for it.
Lou has tried to get on with her life but has struggled to form any lasting relationships with a man due to what happened in her past. Returning to her family home has her bringing up a whole load of memories and emotions that she would rather forget.
Mike literally made my skin crawl, the more I read the more I loathed him. I was literally right there beside Lou willing her to put an end to what Mike was doing before he got his grubby hands on another unsuspecting victim.
The Fear is a chilling read that sadly portrays what is happening now in the real world. It really opened my eyes into how these predators work and it made for some compelling reading. Yet another engrossing, page turner of a read.
Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.
