My second post of the day and I’m delighted to be on the blog tour for The Woman at 46 Heath Street…..I literally LOVE this book! I didn’t want to put it down and absolutely loved all the twists and turns!!
The letter is addressed to me. No stamp, swirly handwriting in black ink. I pull out a piece of paper, stiffening when I read the message. Hands trembling, the note slides to the floor: Your husband is having an affair.
Six words written in neat block letters. Six words slipped through her letterbox, destroying her marriage, exposing Ella’s perfect life as perfect lies.
But Ella has a plan: Alice is the answer to her problems. A lodger, to help keep her afloat, a friend, to keep the loneliness at bay.
Only Alice has her own reasons for wanting to live at 46 Heath Street…
If you loved The Wife Between Us, The Girl on The Train and The Secret Mother, you will be totally hooked by this twisty and gripping read about family secrets, marriage betrayal and the dark side of love.
Ok, so I literally love this book! I had a day off from work and read it in one day…..I honestly couldn’t put it down! This had so many twists and turns….and although there were a few things I guessed, it was still absolutely amazing!
After an earlier life going from foster home to foster home, having been given up by her Mum at the age of 6, Ella is happy with her life. She’s in love with her Husband Chris, and loves their home which they’d shared with her Mother-in-Law before she died. But then she receives a note through the post……telling her Chris is having an affair! After she confronts him, everything spirals out of the control….
He wants her out of the house but she won’t leave….it’s the only place she’s ever felt settled. So to help her afford it, she invites her new friend Alice to move in. But is Alice really what she seems? Who is the other woman that Chris has left her for? Will she get to stay in her beloved house? And what other secrets will she discover?
The story is told from the alternating views of Ella and Alice, with additional chapters that are from the viewpoint of an old diary……but what do they tell us? And what secrets do they hide?
I honestly loved this book so much! I’ve not read anything by Sanderson before but will definitely be finding and reading her other book (if my TBR ever decreases!!!). This intriguing, gripping and brilliant psychological thriller is most definitely highly recommended by me!
