The Optician's Wife by Betsy Reavley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
First of all I really do not know where to start with this review. This is actually the moment where I just want to tell the world how good this book is and for everyone to read it. I just loved it. Even after thinking where is this story going what can I stay other than it totally blew me away!
The Story is inspired by true events so straight away I thought this is going to be a good read but when the story takes a surprising turn that I didn't see coming I have to say it is absolutely flipping fantastic.
So the story starts off in April 1983 where we meet unpopular seventeen-year-old Deborah who meets the charming and handsome Larry, he sweeps her off her feet. The trouble is Larry has a secret. A series of grim stomach turning murders take place casting a shadow over everything .As Deborah’s world starts to fall apart she begins to suspect the man she loves of a terrible betrayal. And to keep their marriage alive, sacrifices must be made.
This story takes us on a journey throughout her relationship with Larry told from her point of view. I love books written like this.
Without giving to much away this is one twisted disturbing story that will have you hooked from start to finish. I couldn't simply couldn't put it now! I didn't see the ending coming at all. I loved this book so much I will definitely be reading more books by this author. Betsy is an author not to be missed. This book most certainly is in my best reads for 2016.
If you like gritty psychological thriller, This one is very well crafted which I highly recommend it giving it 5 massive stars.
