Quick synopsis: When a mysterious note arrives for six-months-pregnant Dr Eliana Hughes, she begins to doubt every aspect of her life – from her mixed feelings about motherhood to her marriage to Martin. As the person behind the note escalates their campaign to out Eli’s husband as a cheat, she finds herself unable to trust even her own instincts, and as pressure builds, she makes a mistake that jeopardises her entire future.
Review: I love a good villain and boy do we get one in Apple of My Eye. The tension mounts beautifully and I was hooked from the word go. The story alternates between three point-of-views, which works and, for me, wasn’t confusing, I liked being able to piece the three together and to try to work out where the story was going!
The positives: Well written, pacey, a real-page turner.
The negatives: I’m not sure it’s a negative as I don’t feel like the author was trying to keep the villain a total secret, but I know some people like to be jaw-drop-shocked by the reveal. I, however, enjoyed being able to figure out who the baddy was, it just added to the tension and had me screaming ‘No! Get away!’ at various points.
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars.
