Synopsis (via GR)
When Alice and Leo move into a newly renovated house in The Circle, a gated community of exclusive houses, it is everything they’ve dreamed of. But appearances can be deceptive…
As Alice is getting to know her neighbours, she discovers a devastating secret about her new home, and begins to feel a strong connection with Nina, the therapist who lived there before.
Alice becomes obsessed with trying to piece together what happened two years before. But no one wants to talk about it. Her neighbors are keeping secrets and things are not as perfect as they seem…
After reading Behind Closed Doors, I knew I had to get a copy of this book in my hands. Was it as good?
The Therapist was a read that checked off all the boxes that I love in a book.
√ Short chapters in which this reader would say “just one more chapter” and I found that I had read not one chapter but many.
√ Hooked right from the start.
√ Felt that I was part of the story and transported into it not knowing what was going on around me (ex: my husband talking to me, which I didn’t even hear him because I was so engrossed)
√ The mystery was so profound that I had no clue how this was going to end.
√Characters three dimensional, believeable and could have been any of them as the suspect.
Was this as good? HECK YES!!! This book was hard to put down!! A riveting and chilling read! Exceptional!! Captivating!!
And let’s talk about the ending. The ending!! I almost passed out because I didn’t realize how long I was holding my breath. A white knuckle read with an explosive finish!!
