Today it’s turn to be on the blog tour for Closer by KL Slater. The first thing about Closer that made me want to read it was the striking cover. It’s bold, yet dark. Intriguing and mysterious. So was the book as good as the cover? Read on to find out!
Book Description of Closer by KL Slater
I know my daughter better than I know myself and if there’s one thing I know for sure at this moment: it’s that Maisie is not ok.
My ex-husband Shaun and I are still friends.
We would do anything for our beautiful little girl, Maisie.
But now Shaun has moved in with Joanne and suddenly, Maisie has a brand new family.
And there’s something not quite right about it…I know Joanne isn’t everything she says she is. Yet no-one will listen.
I need to discover what she’s hiding.
Because if I don’t, my daughter will be in terrible danger.
The most gripping psychological thriller you’ll read this year from the Kindle top five bestselling author K.L. Slater. If you love The Girl on the Train or Gone Girl, you’ll be absolutely hooked.
I will say that Closer starts off pretty slow paced. It gains momentum and towards the end left me on tender hooks. The characters are well thought out and described very well. Closer is a good sit by the fire on a Sunday evening kind of book, once you get past halfway you might not want to put it own.
So now I’ve told you the pace of the book, here is a little about the plot. I won’t tell you any spoilers though!
Emma and Shaun are separated but still live in the same house to bring up their 10 year old daughter Maisie. When Shaun starts up a relationship with Emma’s boss Joanne things start to go wrong. He moves in with Joanne and her daughter Paige who happens to be the same age as Maisie. But the girls don’t get on. Piper is a spoilt brat who bullies Maisie out of ear shot of Shaun.
What’s upsetting to me is that Maisie becomes withdrawn and stops eating. Shaun can’t see anything wrong and thinks Emma is seeing too much into the situation. But when things start happening to Emma, clearly something is amiss.
