Today I am taking part in the book tour and reviewing Save Her by Abigail Osborne. This was released on the 5th of May, published by Bloodhound Books.
Would you give up your husband to save your best friend’s life?
Bonded by their traumatic childhoods, Flora and Sophie are inseparable friends who married brothers.
What they could not have anticipated was their mother-in-law, Cecelia. Disappointed that her children have married beneath them, Cecelia takes every opportunity to belittle and taunt her daughters-in-law.
When Cecelia learns that Flora and her son are moving away, her wrath escalates, and Flora’s world begins to fall apart.
Meanwhile, Sophie’s life is also crumbling around her. Her marriage is not what it seems, and she is desperate to escape the clutches of the poisonous family she has married into.
Is Flora being tormented or is she losing her mind?
Will Sophie and Flora be forced to leave their husbands in order to survive?
With a mother-in-law like Cecelia, anything is possible…
Discover a twisty and completely gripping psychological thriller today.
Save Her is a gripping psychological thriller full of twists and turns which will keep you guessing until the very end. It’s the perfect read for readers of domestic noir, as well as for fans of authors like Louise Jensen, B A Paris and K.L. Slater.
A mother in law from hell, a dysfunctional family, a marriage not as it seems, secrets, lies, deceit, domestic abuse, manipulation, toxic relationships and friendship all play a role in this engrossing tale from Abigail Osborne.
So when you read the above did you need to take a breath? Phew I did and I wrote it! This book is mentally exhausting with everything that goes on and is so very riveting. The plot is intricately woven and pulls you into its web, its narrative is compelling and multifaceted.
I love these stories that are bursting full of drama and you definitely get that in this book. Above all else though, the main crux of it is about the friendship between Flora and Sophie. Friends since childhood, all they have had is each other and I enjoyed learning of its origin, how it has developed over time and how it is portrayed in the present.
All the characters are all interesting and intriguing. That Cecelia is a piece of work! The things that come out of that woman’s mouth, oh my goodness she is something else. I loved Flora and felt very protective of her especially when in the firing line of Cecelia wrath!
Save Me is an addictive psychological thriller. It is a well written and fast paced with no unnecessary filler chapters, making for a quick and smooth read. The twist was unexpected and well done and everything played out perfectly. All up a very satisfying read.
