The Unwelcome Guest by Amanda Robson


Saffron vowed to love Miles no matter what life threw at them both. But when her mother-in-law moves into their happy family home, Saffron’s shiny life begins to tarnish.
Even as Caprice’s barbed comments turn to something more sinister, Saffron hopes the new nanny’s arrival will shield her from the worst of it. She’s starting to feel paranoid in her own home.
Little does she realise that Caprice longs for a new daughter-in-law – and she’ll do anything to make that happen…

The Unwelcome Guest: From the #1 bestselling author of Obsession comes a gripping new thriller by [Amanda Robson]

My Review:

Wow, this book is stunningly good!

Some books take a little while until you get into them, and get to know all the characters. Not this one. I was totally held captive by this book right from the start.

The short chapters are told from different characters’ points of view, and they’re written as if they are addressing one of the other characters. This style of narration makes you feel as though you can read their mind and all their thoughts, and it’s really addictive.

There is so much going on with every character. I found it hard to believe that Caprice, the mother-in-law, could really be that bad, but trust me, she is!

I absolutely sped through this book, I just couldn’t put it down. Compulsive and intense reading, with some genuine shockers, this book is a major page-turner, and a must-read for anyone who enjoys an excellent and thrilling book.

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Thanks so much to Avon books and Netgalley for the advance copy of the book. It’s published on August 19th, and available to pre-order now.
