She Lies Close By Sharon Doering | Book Review

Today I'm reviewing and taking part in the blog tour for She Lies Close by Sharon Doering which was kindly sent to me by Titan Books*. If you are looking for a fun and very different psychological thriller  to read then keep on reading because this book will definitely be right up your street.   

What is She Lies Close About? 

Five-year-old Ava Boone has been missing for six months. There have been no leads, no arrests. The only suspect was Leland Ernest. And mother-of-two Grace Wright has just bought the house next door. With whispered neighbourhood gossip and increasingly sleepless nights, Grace develops a fierce obsession with Leland.

Could she really be living next door to a child-kidnapper? Or worse a murderer?
What I liked about She Lies Close?

She Lies Close is a really interesting and unique thriller. I really loved the writing style. Right from the start I was engaged in the story and it was a very easy book to read. 

This book really plays into the unreliable narrator trope, so if you love that trope I am sure you will love this book.

It was a really fun, quick read. If you have read a lot of thrillers, I think you'll still be able to really enjoy this one as it is quite different from other thrillers out there. Definitely well worth a read. 

What did I not like about She Lies Close?

Overall, I really did enjoy this book. I did however, find the main character quite annoying but that's just personal preference and I'm sure lots of other people will love her. Also, there were a couple of references to OCD in the book which were inaccurate and as someone who has had OCD I found a little bit offensive. But other than that, it was an enjoyable read. 

Who do I recommend She Lies Close to?

I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a fun, well written and easy to read thriller, whether you are new to the genre or not.

I would give trigger warnings though for murder, child abuse and violence. So if those are topics that you find upsetting maybe give this one a miss.

Overall thoughts:

Overall, this was a super fun and easy to read thriller. It was a great debut and I'll definitely be interested in reading more from this author in the future. 

She Lies Close comes out on the 22nd September
