The Assistant By S. K. Tremayne

The Assistant By S. K. Tremayne


She watches you constantly.
Newly divorced Jo is delighted to move into her best friend’s spare room almost rent-free. The high-tech luxury Camden flat is managed by a meticulous Home Assistant, called Electra, that takes care of the heating, the lights – and sometimes Jo even turns to her for company.

She knows all your secrets.
Until, late one night, Electra says one sentence that rips Jo’s fragile world in two: ‘I know what you did.’ And Jo is horrified. Because in her past she did do something terrible. Something unforgivable.

Now she wants to destroy you.
Only two other people in the whole world know Jo’s secret. And they would never tell anyone. Would they? As a fierce winter brings London to a standstill, Jo begins to understand that the Assistant on the shelf doesn’t just want to control Jo; it wants to destroy her.

My Thoughts:

Wow what a unique story, the story centres around Jo and if she is going mad or is it the assistants? I found this read creepy and unnerving as I think anyone would do if they have a home hub in their home. Some things with these home hubs just don’t sit right with me. I couldn’t for the life of me work out where this story was going to lead and with Jo’s paranoia I wondered what would happen to her and her state of mind. The book is dark and by the final few chapters gets darker and a secret comes out that I couldn’t believe.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

Behind Closed Doors By B A Paris

Behind Closed Doors By B A Paris

behind closed doors

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance. You might not want to like them, but you do.
You’d like to get to know Grace better.
But it’s difficult, because you realise Jack and Grace are never apart.
Some might call this true love. Others might ask why Grace never answers the phone. Or how she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work.

How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. And why there are bars on one of the bedroom windows.

My Thoughts:

Wow what a book. This is the gripping debut thriller from B A Paris that everyone is talking about. I wanted to see for myself what all the fuss was about and I am glad I did. I didn’t want to leave this book alone let alone put it down. I read in a couple of days, it was brilliant. I love the way each chapter is set in the past and present. I found it eerily good and fascinating. I really didn’t know what was going to happen. I can’t believe it is the author’s first book as it was brilliant. I look forward to more of the author’s books. You never know what happens behind closed doors.
