Single mom Louise rarely has a night out alone, and hardly ever meets anyone knew. So when she gets to work the day after she met a man that she truly believed had been a great guy who was also interested in her, she is quite dismayed when the man turns out to be her new boss. Her married boss, David.
David tells her the kiss they shared was a mistake and Louise has no desire to break up a marriage, but David can’t seem to let Louise go. And when Louise meets David’s wife Adele she actually begins to like her. Then she begins to see cracks in the picture of the perfect marriage that they portray.
Adele seems to be terrified of David, has to be home to accept his phone call at a specific time each day and is not allowed a cell-phone. Louise begins to seriously doubt David. If he is doing to Adele the things that Louise has begun to suspect, how could she have not seen this side of him before?
The more Louise tries to figure out what is going on, the more she is pulled into their world and she has no idea how far a person might go to protect what the secrets that they want to keep hidden.
“Behind Her Eyes” by Sarah Pinborough is a very interesting book with quite a few twists and turns that I never really saw coming. There were plenty of times that I had figured out exactly what was happening, only to be thrown for a loop when my theories were dispelled. If you like a story that keeps you on your toes, this is a book for you. Pinborough does a wonderful job of creating characters that you can relate to, even when you have no idea if they are who or what they say they are.
So, if you like a psychological thriller, pick this one up. I think you’ll really like it!
