A suspenseful, easy and entertaining read!
Alice and Leo purchase a home in a tight knit gated community known as The Circle. Alice is excited to make new friends and feel a sense of belonging in this new neighbourhood while Leo holds back from socializing too much. Soon after they move in, Alice senses something isn’t right. She begins to question her neighbours intentions and doesn’t know who she can genuinely trust, including Leo.
This was the perfect read for me during a really busy time. The shorter chapters were easy to fly through. The pace and flow were consistent and kept me highly intrigued and invested. Each chapter had my curiosity building and my suspicions changing. There isn’t a lot to overthink with this book which I loved – it was exactly what I needed at the time I read it. There were some questionable elements to the plot but the writing was so smooth and addictive that they didn’t bother me.
I truly love this author! I’ve read all of her books and highly recommend them if you want an addictively suspenseful and entertaining story without having to think too much. They are books that you can just sit back and enjoy as the plot unfolds, keeping you intrigued to the last page. Nothing too intense or gripping, but extremely enjoyable nonetheless. They all follow that same formula of slowly building up tension and suspense and throwing some great unexpected twists and turns in the mix.
I am already looking forward to what this author comes out with next!
I enjoyed this psychological suspense for it’s easy and entertaining plot and unlikable characters with an intense setting to get lost in. I sat back, read, and gave that over thinker in me a rest. So I am not going to overthink this review by delving deep into anything. Like Lindsay said in her review, there isn’t much to think about here, and like her, I loved that about the story. Sometimes that all is needed in a good book.
I loved the setting with the closed vibe of the sought-after gated community of “The Circle” that our main character Alice is not feeling is so sought-after moving in. Her newly renovated dream home holds a shocking secret, and she tries to find more about what happened to the therapist Nina who lived there. Things start to spiral out of control, and those twists and turns kept me on my toes right up to the hard to buy into but entertaining and satisfying ending.
I highly recommend it for a fun distraction from the world around you and not to over think this one!!
