The Woman in My Home by Kerry Fisher

I’m delighted to be part of the tour for this absolutely gripping book today. Thanks so much to Bookouture for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

I was starting to believe it might be my turn for the fairy tale. A man who adored me, someone to return to at the end of the day and to share my life with. And Rebecca. Capable, reliable Rebecca who could help me to manage my busy home…

Finally, Cath has met someone: a man she loves, Robin, and who adores her in return. And after years of managing fine on her own, running a successful business, raising her son, and caring for her elderly mother, she feels she deserves some happiness. And who better to provide it than charming, fun-loving Robin?

She expected everyone to be delighted for her. But her friends and family are suspicious of Robin. And Rebecca, a desperate single mother who Cath has hired as a live-in housekeeper, doesn’t trust him either. He’s too slick, he’s too perfect and it all happened too fast… how well does Cath really know him?

Cath is used to taking care of herself; she’s nobody’s fool. But when things start to go wrong in the house that’s been her haven for all these years, she’s forced to ask herself whether the man she loves is really what he seems… And having let Rebecca in to every part of her life, is Cath ready to face the secrets she might find there?

From the Amazon charts bestselling author of The Silent Wife and The Woman I Was Before, The Woman in My Home is a gripping read about family secrets and lies. Perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty and Diane Chamberlain.

My Review:

Ooh, this is a very twisty tale! Right from the start I was totally drawn into the story, which is told from the points of view of both Cath and Rebecca.

I liked both of them as characters, although I was surprised that a successful and strong woman like Cath could be so trusting of a man she’d only known for a short while, one who seemed to be not just too good to be true, but who had a variety of excuses and ever-changing stories.

It is so hard to know who to trust in this book and it’s very addictive reading. It’s a real “just one more chapter” book.

The first half of the book moves along at quite an easy pace and then boom, along comes the first twist. After this, it’s a very tense read with an impending deadline ahead that made me race to the finish.

This book will completely consume you, highly recommended for anyone who loves a superb domestic thriller with some genuinely jaw-dropping moments.

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.
