Today I am taking part in the blog tour and reviewing The Lodger by Valerie Keogh, published by Boldwood Books.
She’s in your home…
Leigh Simons can’t say for sure what made her do it. A moment of madness, perhaps, but when the young, loud and gorgeous waitress at her favorite coffee shop reveals she is homeless, Leigh offers her the empty room in her house.
In your head…
Gina is the perfect lodger; Leigh, lonely and frustrated with her life, becomes infatuated with the woman – her boldness, her zeal. If only Leigh could be more like Gina…
And missing without trace.
So when Leigh returns from a work trip she’s shocked to find Gina missing. Where could the young woman have gone…and why?
Leigh fears that something terrible has happened – why else would Gina leave her?
But as she sets out to find her missing lodger, what Leigh discovers changes everything she knows about Gina….and her own life, too.
“She’s in your home…and in your head…”
Keogh creates a dark and sinister tale where I was held captive and on the edge of my seat. The intensity increases with each page turn and I just had to know what happened to Gina!. The pace is slightly on the slower side, but does work in this case and its plot twists and outcome satisfies. The Lodger is another entertaining read from Keogh, that once again showcases her talent for storytelling.
Thank you to Valerie Keogh, Boldwood Books and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advance copy of The Lodger, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
This review will be added to, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Amazon Australia & Amazon US. I will also add to NetGalley, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play Barnes & Noble, Waterstones, Foyles and BookBub if available. As I am from Australia, I am unable to add to Amazon UK.
