I read Into The Darkest Corner on a recommendation from my sister Norma. I am not sure if this would have been one I would’ve chosen for myself. I am really glad I took Norma’s recommendation and read this one.

I found The Darkest Corner to be a dark, disturbing, and interesting book.

The story is told in alternating chapters switching timelines with the before when once lively, fun loving and party girl Catherine meets handsome, charming and mysterious Lee and we follow their relationship as it declines into violence and the after, where we see Catherine is now struggling with OCD and PTSD giving us a good sense of the burdens of both. That made this an interesting read for me. The contrast between the two timelines is cleverly pulled together leaving me feeling very satisfied with the ending.

I recommend to anyone who loves a good psychological thriller but with caution as there is some violence.
