Hello my lovelies!! Today I’m also excited to share with you a review of Apartment 6 by Stuart James…..I loved the last book I read by him and couldn’t wait to get stuck into this…..and I most definitely WASN’T disappointed!!!
Be careful what you wish for…
When Meagan was five years old her mother was viciously attacked and murdered.
Now an adult, she herself is the victim of an abusive relationship. Meagan is desperate to escape but doesn’t have the courage to leave.
So, when Meagan meets Oliver, a decent guy who is on the rebound after a failed relationship, the two strike up a connection. But when Meagan confesses that her husband is abusive, it leads Oliver down a dark and dangerous path.
Just how far would you go to protect someone?
Oliver is about to find out and be pushed to his very limits…
Yet another fantastic psychological thriller from Stuart!
This time I’m not going to put anything about the plot as I don’t want to spoil any bit of the story. All you need to know is that if you love psychological thrillers then you NEED to read this! Absolutely full of twists and turns – things that you would never expect and couldn’t make up!!
Meagan is an interesting character – seemingly vulnerable and going through the worst thing possible, experiencing violence at the hands of her husband. But she is stronger than she knows….
Oliver is a lovely guy, but somewhat naive. Meeting a girl that he knows nothing about, being sucked in and then spiralling down a path that he would never have imagined….
Meagan’s husband is NOT a nice guy in comparison! Every time he was mentioned, it just made my blood boil! There are also some fantastic supporting characters in this – the old lady and the guy from next door were particular favourites!
We also learn about Meagan’s past which is enlightening in itself and will bring out a rollercoaster of emotions in the best of us.
Apartment 6 has a fantastic storyline and characters which will completely suck you in, have you hooked and have your heart racing. I honestly didn’t want to put this down. Fab work Stuart! Looking forward to seeing what you bring us next!
Absolutely 100% recommended by me.
about the author
I have always loved scary stories, especially ones that shocked me, left me terrified, looking under my bed or in the wardrobe before going to sleep.
There was just a fantastic buzz whenever I watched or read something that took my breathe away.
I remember going to my nan’s house in Ireland as a youngster with my mother and sister, on the West Coast, staying in a cottage, surrounded by miles of fields and my family sitting around the table in the kitchen at night telling ghost stories. Going out and exploring derelict farmhouses in the middle of nowhere. I remember clearly the field at the end of the road was supposed to be haunted by headless nuns.
My cousins often remind me of the great times we had, frightening each other and running for our lives whenever we’d see something that didn’t look right.
This is why I love nothing more than to tell a story.
I started writing two years ago, penning The House On Rectory Lane.
I got the idea from something that has often seemed scary to me. I know that a terrifying story has to be something that you’re frightened of doing, something that makes the hairs stand on the back of your neck, something that fills you with dread, yet also with excitement.
To me, the thought of going to a house in the middle of nowhere, upping and leaving a busy town and moving to the country is something that scares lots of people and me: the seclusion, the quiet, the darkness.
That’s what inspired me to write my first novel.
My second thriller is called Turn The Other Way.
I have multiple stories running, past and present. A family who want answers from the surgeon responsible for their daughter’s death.
A young woman looking for her parents after they go missing from a party.
A couple driving home and hearing screams for help from the back of the van in front of them.
A serial killer on the loose in North London, dragging victims off the street.
I’m so grateful when people not only read my thrillers but also take the time to get in touch and leave a review. To me, that is the greatest feeling, hearing from people that have enjoyed my work. I know then that I’m doing something right.
I’m currently working on my new thriller, Apartment Six, which Will be released 29th of January.
I’m 45, married and have two beautiful children. Currently, I’m a full-time plumber but would love nothing more than to make a living from my writing.
I hope I write stories and people continue to enjoy them for years to come. That would be completely amazing and a dream come true.
