Wow! Just Wow!
The Red House by Roz Watkins is an absolutely gripping contemporary psychological suspense that I just could not put down. My attention was grabbed from the start.
Roz Watkins has spun a marvellous tale. Her plotline is well thought out and executed. I, wrongly, believed I had worked out the conclusion – nope! How wrong was I? I followed where Roz Watkins pen led, ending up in a dead end as Roz Watkins constructed her fabulous tale.
The conclusion was superb. My heart rate rose and my jaw dropped in an ‘oh wow!’ moment.
All the characters were well drawn and realistic, eliciting a variety of emotional responses from me. I loved the leading lady as she tenaciously searched for the truth from that traumatic night when she was just five years old.
The action is told from alternating points of view, enabling the reader to draw as close to the characters as we want to.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Red House and read it in just two sittings. It is an extremely well planned tale that definitely makes you think as you read.
I always enjoy Roz Watkins books and The Red House was cracking. It would make a nail-bitingly good Netfix series – any producers out there please take note!
I received a free copy from the publishers. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
