It seems like a lovely little house. But it has dark secrets…
Karen is a busy wife and mother. Between work, her husband Peter, and their two children, Oscar and Noah, she doesn’t have a minute to herself.
So when it all begins to feel too much, Karen knows just what she needs – to get away for a little while. Nothing big. Just a short break.
Her friend, Eve, tells her about a quaint little holiday home, and Karen books herself a short stay. She’ll have time to read, take bubble baths, unwind. Perfect.
But this is no ordinary holiday home – it contains a dark and disturbing secret. Because Karen isn’t alone here – someone is watching her. Waiting for the right moment to spring the trap and plunge her into a nightmare she’ll never forget.
The Break – the stunning psychological thriller from the author of The Passenger and The New Friends

Review by Curling up with a Coffee and a Kindle, “Read it in a day with barely any breaks, but the breaks that I took just meant that I was thinking about it and wanted to get back to it! Pardon the puns please.”
Review by My Reading Getaway, “When I was reading this book on my Kindle, I glanced at where I was and was surprised that I was halfway through the book. The pace of the book is so fast that you don’t want to put it down.”

Until the next adventure xxx
