A Clue Or A Red Herring?
Both Of You by Adele Parks is a marvellous contemporary psychological suspense that will have you looking this way and that as you try to guess the perpetrator.
Two women go missing, two husbands are distraught, two police officers lead the hunt – and what they discover will be the moment that everything changes for the reader – we have to try to guess the ‘who’ as we believe we know the ‘why’.
I suspected several characters – leaning first towards one and then another and then back again – as I tried to guess who had orchestrated the crime.
Adele Parks created a thrilling read told from several alternating points of view and time periods. There were clues and red herrings peppered throughout but which line to follow?
The characters were well drawn and realistic. I liked some more than others as Adele Parks toyed with my emotional responses.
I became completely immersed in Both Of You finding it totally mesmerizing. Surprisingly I managed to guess the ‘who’ but not predict what followed. Although as I suspected several characters maybe it’s not that surprising!
Adele Parks always writes fabulous psychological stories which I can never put down.
A word of caution: there were bedroom scenes with far too much detail for me, so I just skipped over them. It did not detract from my overall enjoyment of the story.
