BOOK REVIEW LAST SEEN ALIVE BY CLAIRE DOUGLAS 

She can run.

Libby Hall needs to hide ,to escape from everything for a while.  Which is why the house swap is a godsend . The chance for Libby and her husband Jamie to  exchange their tiny bath flat for a beautiful haven on the wild cornish coast  .

But she can’t hide

Before they can begin to heal their fragile marriage , Libby makes some disturbing discoveries about the house.  And soon the peace and isolation begin to feel threatening.  How alone are they?  Why does she feel watched?

Because someone knows her secret

What us Jamie hiding? Is Libby being paranoid?  And why does the house bring back such painful memories?  Memories Libby has worked hard to bury. Memories of the night she last saw her best friend alive …and what she did. 

Firstly a big thank you to Sarah at penguin for my copy to review.

I know without  even reading the blurb that I will enjoy one of Claire books. She is superb at writing a twisty psychological thriller .

Last seen alive is amazing ,im writing this late at night after finishing it so it’s fresh in my thoughts .

I did not in a million years see where this was going…..it has huge shock factor.

The first half I was enjoying but admitted I was feeling frustrated at the characters then boom…. 

This is so dark and tense it makes you feel almost suffocated when reading . Also paranoid and on the edge of your seat .

Who can you trust?  What is real ?

Incredibly written and very clever. 

Just go read if you want fast paced chilling read this summer .

Cannot recommend enough and I’m in awe of Claires writing …. her ability to pull the rug from under the readers feet !
