Book Description:

What would you do if you came home to find someone in your house?


This is the predicament Polly Cooke faces when she returns to her new home.The first weeks in the house had been idyllic, but soon Jacob, a local man, is watching her.


What does he want and why is he so obsessed with Polly?


In a situation where nothing is what it seems, you might end up regretting letting some people in.

My Thoughts:

Ooh what a fab story!

It’s hard to actually know what to say about this one as to do so I think would give major spoilers away. Things definitely took a different turn to what I was expecting which is what makes this book really stand out for me.

The story flicks back and forth from present day to weeks leading up to current events. Polly could be any one of us. Sadly she spends her time visiting her mum who is in a care home as well as avoiding Jacob who seems to be obsessed with her and is stalking her. All Polly wants to do is make her new home her own and feel secure. She certainly gets the readers empathy to start with.

No Place Like Home piqued my interest from the very first page. The further into the story I got, the more twisted and surprising it was. It really will mess with your head as you won’t expect what’s coming. Things definitely arn’t as they first appear making this an absolute must read for fans of psychological thrillers.

My thanks to Bloodhound Books and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

No Place Like Home is available to purchase from Amazon. (Please note that link used is an affiliate link).
