The Couple on Maple Drive Sam Carrington 5*#Review @sam_carrington1 @AvonBooksUK #psychologicalthriller #secrets #crimefiction #podcast #Torquay #Devon #BookReview #domesticsuspense #TheCoupleonMapleDrive

Isla barely leaves the house after her brutal mugging.

Her boyfriend Zach moved in with her after the attack. To look after her.

But something else has happened now. Right on their doorstep.

I don’t want to say that someone’s out to get her…

I just hope they find out the truth before it’s too late.

Or at least before the secrets, they’re hiding from each other surface.

Because those could be even deadlier

I received a copy of this book from Avon Books UK via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

This book’s quiet beginning means that it’s a little while before you realise that the story is full of danger and deceit. Isla’s unreliability shows her vulnerability, and the reader empathises with her. Dual timeframes give the reader insights into the characters’ past as Isla’s memories gradually return.

The suspense is multilayered; Isla’s internal battle with her anxiety, the domestic tension between Isla and Zach and the overall suspenseful nature of the plot as the story plays out. The ending is impactful and satisfying.
