Recensioner

Take Me In is a dual narrative alternating between Him and Her which had me wondering right from page one as to why the chapters weren’t titled Tessa and Marcus? Surely that would have made more sense right? And that’s not the only question that this book throws at you.

For me this was quite a slow burner in the beginning, from the books blurb it was fairly obvious that their son almost drowns whilst at the beach and that it is a stranger, Dave Jepsom, that saves the little boy. It was following that incident that the story slowed down. But that’s not to say that it was boring!

Because of how the story is told you almost feel like a fly on the wall watching as the lives of Tessa and Marcus play out. They would both make great guests on the Jeremy Kyle show!!

Full of secrets, lies and deceit both characters are on an emotional rollercoaster that we are all witnesses too and as the story plays out those lies are coming home to roost! And that isn’t including the “hero” that saved their son.

How do you ever thank someone enough when they have saved your son’s life? Does such an act of heroism embed that person into your life? How do you live with the guilt of not watching your son as he entered the water? The guilt of not saving your own son?

So many questions that all build up and as the tension increases you know its all leading to that one final twist. The big confrontation that makes everything add up in a satisfying conclusion, even if it doesn’t come as a massive shock!

For me personally the ending wasn’t great, I don’t know if that’s because I had worked most of it out before the twist so I didn’t get that surprise. I’m not sure, but it was still a great read.

I thought this book had a lot of promise in the beginning. A grifter sting gone wrong. Then the escape. But after that, it was drawn out, adding way too many characters. Additionally, each of these characters had a secret, which allowed the grifter more opportunities.
When Ali and Sean travel, they set their eyes on a mark. In France, they choose Lulu, who seems ripe for the picking. They start to take advantage of Lulu. On a boat trip, things go south, and Ali wonders how to get out of the situation.
I wish this book had been better. As it was, I struggled to get through the entire chef scenario and the family and friends at the villa. Disappointed.

This is an absorbing book that keeps you guessing right to the end, with twists galore that throw you off the scent of the trail to catch the murderer of Ania Dudek. Her body has been found in a local park by Gaby Mortimer, a television morning show presenter, who soon becomes the police’s chief suspect. With Gaby protesting her innocence, she enlists the aid of Jack Hayward, a freelance newspaper reporter to help clear her name. As his investigation progresses, doubts are raised about Gaby’s involvement in Ania’s death. Suspicions are raised about the true killer, leading to a surprise revelation and a shocking ending to an enthralling story.… (mer)
