My Book Review of Trust In Me by Sophie McKenzie
Trust In Me is a psychological thriller about Livy, who loses a sister, a best friend and very nearly a husband.
Livy is a mother to a painful teenage daughter and toddler son who adores her. She has a good life, but still struggles to come to terms with the loss of her little sister who was murdered whilst in her first year of university. The person who so cruelly took her little sisters life was never found. Fast forward 18 years and Livy turns up to visit her best friend Julia for a lunch date. Julia doesn’t open the door and she doesn’t answer her phone. She is dead on the couch. Are the deaths connected? Is it suicide? Is Julia the friend Livy thought she was all these years?
This read was a good one, it did have me in suspense and my favourite chapters were the ones told from the murderers point of view as they were smart and dark and interesting. However, they were few and far between and Livy as the main protagonist bored me a little. I felt that she could have been a real kick ass heroine, yet the ending didn’t really give her, or the other main characters the opportunity to bow out with a bang.
Overall though, a great holiday read if you love a thriller and some suspense!
3 out of 5 stars from me
