‘I invited her in… and she took everything.’

When Mel hears from a long-lost friend in need of help, she doesn’t hesitate to invite her to stay. Mel and Abi were best friends back in the day, sharing the highs and lows of student life, until Mel’s unplanned pregnancy made her drop out of her studies.

Now, seventeen years later, Mel and Abi’s lives couldn’t be more different. Mel is happily married, having raised her son on her own before meeting her husband, Ben. Now they share gorgeous girls and have a chaotic but happy family home, with three children.

Abi, meanwhile, followed her lover to LA for a glamorous life of parties, celebrity and indulgence. Everything was perfect, until she discovered her partner had been cheating on her.

The Image Of You By Adele Parks

The Image Of You’The Image Of You’ is the latest book by Adele Parks.

When all you can see is what they want you to see… Can you ever trust someone you meet online? Anna and Zoe are twins. Identical in appearance, utterly different in personality, they share a bond so close that nothing – or no one – can rip them apart. Until Anna meets charismatic Nick.

Anna is trusting, romantic and hopeful; she thinks Nick is perfect. Zoe is daring, dangerous and extreme; she thinks Nick is a liar. Zoe has seen Anna betrayed by men before. She’ll stop at nothing to discover if Nick is as good as he seems. The problem is, lies may hurt. But honesty can kill.

When it comes to favourite authors, Adele Parks is up there with being one of my favourites. Her ability to write gripping tales with twists and intriguing characters always leaves me wanting me when I reach the final page and ‘The Image Of You’ is no different.

In her latest book, we meet twin sisters, Anna and Zoe, women who are complete polar opposites of each other. Anna is quiet and organised, she works for a charity and also sees the best in people, whilst her sister Zoe is a reckless wild child who has aspirations of becoming a successful model and actress and refuses to let anyone stand in her way including her sister. But then meet Anna meets Nick through online dating and they embark on a whirlwind affair affair.

Once a man who enjoyed one night stands and wild passion, Anna manages to tame him to appreciate the finer things in life and Nick begins to think that Anna might just be the one for him.

After a short time together, he proposes and Anna is delighted that her life plan is back on track. Settle down, get married and have children. Reluctantly, she tells Zoe her good news, who finds it hilarious that she is rushing into the relationship and decides to leave New York for London, to visit her sister and new fiancé.

This is when chaos ensues, Zoe comes to London with her drama, lust and passion and completely catches Nick off guard. Wondering if he has fallen for the wrong sister, they begin an illicit affair and through the story, Nick finds himself falling for both sisters.

The story is seen through the narrative of Anna, Zoe and Nick and each of the voices gave the story an edge flowing from calm to manic as the story progresses. Anna is calm and organised as she plans her wedding whilst Zoe feels no remorse or guilt for her actions. Her arrogance is outstanding and adds almost an element of dark humour to the story, whilst Nick tackles confusion and guilt, Zoe revels in it.

With a clever storyline, witty and complex characters, the book is an engrossing read that was impossible to put down. Riddled with twists and drama, ‘The Image Of You’ tackles the complexity of sibling rivalry, deceit and lust with a shocking ending that will leave the reader breathless.

You can pre-order The Image of You from Amazon and will be available to buy from good bookshops.

The Stranger In My Home By Adele Parks

The Stranger In My Home‘The Stranger In My Home’ is the latest book by ‘Sunday Times’ besetselling author, Adele Parks

Alison is lucky and she knows it. She has the life she always craved, including a happy home with Jeff and their brilliant, vivacious teenage daughter, Katherine – the absolute centre of Alison’s world. Then a knock at the door ends life as they know it. Fifteen years ago, someone else took Alison’s baby from the hospital. And now Alison is facing the unthinkable. Her daughter belongs to someone else. What would you do if you discovered your beloved child is not yours?

When a copy of ‘The Stranger In My Home’ arrived in my postbox, I literally put everything down and eagerly delved into Adele’s latest book which promised to be a dark and gripping read.

The story is seen solely through the eyes of Alison, a woman who dotes over her 15 year old daughter, Katherine. She gave up her job to commit her life to her daughter and husband. Her career is the upkeep of the house whilst maintaining a perfect family and keeping her daughters life in order, running her to and from her numerous classes. Alison’s life is perfect until one day, a man turns up at the door claiming that Katherine isn’t her daughter and not only that she may also be carrying BRC1 gene. The man known as Tom claims that Katherine and the girl he thought was his daughter Olivia were swapped in the hospital when they were born and both babies were taken to the wrong homes.

Alison and Jeff’s life suddenly falls apart as the world that they created is torn apart beyond their control as Katherine is curious about her new family meanwhile Olivia isn’t interested in getting to know Alison and Jeff.

The characters in this story make for complex and insightful reading. Alison is a strong character, an overprotective mama bear, her only instinct is the welfare of her daughter. She frets and worries over Katherine, this perfect little bundle of joy who has brought so much happiness and purpose to her life, which was once so bleak and miserable. Now she has Katherine, she doesn’t need anyone else in her life, but now there is the potential that Katherine might be taken from her, Alison feels helpless and surprisingly finds herself turning to Tom for support, a charming and charismatic character, they support each other as they tentatively get to know each other much to Jeff’s upset, a person who has always been there in Alison’s hour of need. There is also an inclusion off a smaller sub story about Alison’s life whilst she was growing up and how it shaped her to become the woman she is today.

Like Adele’s previous books, the story is cleverly written in a way that keeps the reader engaged and bursting for more. With every chapter there is a new upheaval in Alison’s life as her perfect world is slipping through her fingers beyond her control. Gripping from the every beginning, Adele explores a parents worst fear, when a child is discovered as not your own, filled with drama, riddled with deceit, ‘The Stranger In My Home’ is another wonderfully tragic and atmospheric story about the complexities of morals and issues and with such an unexpected ending that will leave the reader gasping in shock, this book has been hailed as Adele’s best book to date. I loved it!

You can pre-order The Stranger In My Home from Amazon and will be available to buy from good bookshops from 26th January 2017.
