Today I am taking part in the books on tour and reviewing Do I Really Know You by Sheryl Browne, published by Bookouture.
When the police knock on my door to tell me that my best friend Kiara has taken her life, my world shatters.
Ever since we met at university along with my husband, Nathan and her ex-husband David, the four of us have been inseparable. I can’t believe that, suddenly, she’s not here.
The police say that Kiara fell from the balcony of her small, pristine apartment. But I refuse to accept that she jumped.
I thought I knew Kiara better than anyone. But I soon find out my friend was keeping some big secrets.
Talking to her ex-husband, David, I’m shocked. Was she really having an affair, like he claims?
Searching for evidence, I let myself into her apartment. My heart races as I find her diary and I read the name of her last appointment – Nathan. Why would she be meeting with my husband? And why didn’t he tell me?
It soon becomes clear that everyone around me has been hiding the truth, and when the police call again and ask me to look at security camera footage from the night Kiara died, fear floods through me as I recognise her final visitor. Can I trust anyone in my life? And if someone did push Kiara that night, could I be next?
Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl and The Wife, Do I Really Know You? is a gripping new psychological thriller from bestselling author Sheryl Browne. Once you start reading, you won’t be able to stop!
”She’s your best friend…But can you trust her…”
Do I Really Know You explores gaslighting, coercive control and magnified phobias, that are all unwrapped and told through Browne’s unique style of storytelling.
It wasn’t hard to be drawn into this story and caught up in its drama. What I love the most about Browne’s work is she knows how to write a prologue to immediately suck you in and the opening of this book is no exception. It is goosebump worthy and skin crawling with its insects of the eight legged kind and sets an ominous tone of what is to come.
The story itself is intriguing with the themes explored, in particular Kiara’s phobia of spider’s. The characters are interesting and It all plays out well as secrets and lies are brought to the surface. The pace is fast and it’s plot twists makes it a very gripping and thrilling read. All round, this another fantastic read from Browne and I can’t wait to read what she comes up with for us fans next.
