Watch Her Fall By Erin Kelly | Book Review

Today I'm taking part in the blog tour for Watch Her Fall by Erin Kelly, a fantastic thriller with a superb twist which you won't see coming! This book was kindly sent to me Hodder and Stoughton*. If you are looking for an addictive new thriller to read then look no further!

What Is Watch Her Fall About:

Swan Lake is divided into the black acts and the white acts. The Prince is on stage for most of the ballet, but it's the swans audiences flock to see. In early productions, Odette and Odile were performed by two different dancers. These days, it is usual for the same dancer to play both roles. Because of the faultless ballet technique required to master the steps, and the emotional range needed to perform both the virginal Odette and the dark, seductive Odile, this challenging dual role is one of the most coveted in all ballet. Dancers would kill for the part.

Ava Kirilova has reached the very top of her profession. After years and years of hard graft, pain and sacrifice as part of the London Russian Ballet Company, allowing nothing else to distract her, she is finally the poster girl for Swan Lake. Even Mr K - her father, and the intense, terrifying director of the company - can find no fault. Ava has pushed herself ahead of countless other talented, hardworking girls, and they are all watching her now.

But there is someone who really wants to see Ava fall . . .

What I Liked About Watch Her Fall:

I really loved the concept of this book. I have never read a thriller based on ballet before, which made this book really interesting and stand out from the countless other thrillers I've read.

I absolutely loved the twist in this book. It was so shocking and I definitely did not see it coming. 

If you are looking for a well-written and engaging thriller to read in 2021, then I reckon this is definitely one you are going to want to check out. 

What I Did Not Like About Watch Her Fall:

I really did enjoy this book. The only issue I had was at the start the structure takes some time to get used to. It doesn't really make sense at the beginning. However, once the story progressed everything fell into place and I really enjoyed the book. 

Who Do I Recommend Watch Her Fall To:

I recommend this book to anyone who loves thrillers. If you have just started reading thrillers or have been reading them for years, I think you'll love this book. This book is definitely for fans of Paula Hawkins, Claire Mackintosh and Gillian Macallister. 

This book does have trigger warnings for murder and violence so if those are issues you find triggering to read, give this book a miss. 

Overall thoughts:

Watch Her Fall is a really well-written, addictive thriller with a fantastic twist! Highly recommend. I will definitely be checking out more of Erin Kelly's books in the future now. 

Watch Her Fall comes out on the 1st April 2020
