Book Review ~ He Said/She Said by Erin Kelly



He Said/She Said
by Erin Kelly
Expected publication: June 6th 2017 by Minotaur Books

On the eve of a solar eclipse, a couple forced into hiding discovers that they can no longer run from their past in this taut psychological suspense novel.

In the summer of 1999, Kit and Laura travel to a festival in Cornwall to see a total eclipse of the sun. Kit is an eclipse chaser; Laura has never seen one before. Young and in love, they are certain this will be the first of many they’ll share.

But in the hushed moments after the shadow passes, Laura interrupts a man and a woman. She knows that she saw something terrible. The man denies it. It is her word against his.

The victim seems grateful. Months later, she turns up on their doorstep like a lonely stray. But as her gratitude takes a twisted turn, Laura begins to wonder—did she trust the wrong person?

15 years later, Kit and Laura are living under assumed names and completely off the digital grid: no Facebook, only rudimentary cell phones, not in any directories. But as the truth catches up to them, they realize they can no longer keep the past in the past.

From Erin Kelly, queen of the killer twist, He Said/She Said is a gripping tale of the lies we tell to save ourselves, the truths we cannot admit, and how far we will go to make others believe our side of the story.

He Said/She Said has all the ingredients that are essential to me for an astonishingly spectacular psychological suspense novel that is sure to be one of my top reads for 2017. Filled with so many twists and turns and filled with tension, it gave me no choice but to hang on for dear life as I traversed the inner workings of this story.  Not only was it intriguing and suspenseful, there was a moment that took me completely off guard and my jaw literally dropped from the sheer cleverness of this author’s writing talent.

Highly addicting and absolutely riveting, this story consumed my every waking moment – needing to know the truth….who to really believe.  Erin Kelly is a remarkably good storyteller and her talent shines through in this well-crafted novel.  Guaranteed to keep you guessing throughout, this is one novel that I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys psychological suspense stories.  Check it out and let me know #WhoDoYouBelieve?
