Bring Me Back

My Review:

Well, I’ll be damned, this author has done it again! I loved this darkly twisted mystery thriller.

Bring Me Back is a gripping psychological thriller filled with mystery, lies, dark secrets and characters you’ll be suspicious of trusting. This is definitely a book many will struggle to put down once they pick it up, so make sure you start it early in the day if you plan on getting any sleep.

This story had me gripped from beginning to end. Starting with the eerie scene when a couple stop at a gas station. This reminded me so much of Tanya’s restaurant and horrendous separate outdoor toilets at Services on the A30 near Bodmin. We went there recently on our way up to Yorkshire, and we’ll never stop there again. I would honestly rather wet myself than freak myself out using their creepy painted black toilets ever again. When I came out of the toilets our car was unlocked and my husband was nowhere to be seen. My heart was pounding out of my chest at the time, as I was briefly convinced he’d been kidnapped and murdered during the two minutes I’d been in the toilets. Luckily he did eventually appear, but we will never stop there again no matter what. Check out their 66% of terrible 1 star ratings on TripAdvisor if you think I’m exaggerating.

Anyway, once this book had traumatised me slightly by reminding me of my very own scary encounter and therefore sent my mind back into full-blown panic mode, I thoroughly enjoyed the mystery of this story. I did work out a couple of things in advance, but not everything, so there were surprises in there too.

I loved the focus on Russian dolls. They made me feel nostalgic, as they reminded me of when I worked at The Bead Machine, which was a quirky hippy shop in York. I worked there on Saturdays and school holidays from the age of fifteen to eighteen and mostly sat at the back counter making earrings, while being watched by a shelf of Russian dolls that stood on the wall directly behind me. I’m glad I worked there before reading this book, otherwise I think I may have been more suspicious of them, eek!

I’ve read all three books by this author and loved them all. So, not only do I highly recommend Bring Me Back, but also Behind Closed Doors and The Breakdown.

    1. Ha ha, I don’t think I’d even taken in that it was a Russian doll on the front cover until I started reading it 😉 I was definitely along the right lines in working out the mystery, but didn’t quite figure it out fully, which is good, as I do love a surprise 🙂
