We are now in the era of psychological thrillers, the anticipation for this genre is like none other. Towards the end of last year, I heard that B A Paris was bringing out her third book and my obsession to get my hands on this book commenced. Getting my hands on a copy for this book tour resulted in shrieks of delight and I’m so pleased that I get to share my review with you all today.
Layla has been missing for twelve years. Twelve years is a very long time, so it’s hardly surprising that Finn (her boyfriend) has moved on. Finn’s engagement to Ellen is the catalyst that causes the past to rear its ugly head. Why now? Why is someone pretending to be Layla, threatening Finn? Could it possibly be because Ellen is Layla’s sister? And what if it actually is Layla? If she’s alive, the truth of the night she went missing may finally come out.
B A Paris’ writing style always seems to create such wonderful suspense from the very first page. It’s the exact same feeling you get when the opening credits start of a movie you’ve been waiting for months to see, that nervous trepidation seeps over you and your body awaits the psychological workout that’s about to unfold.
I loved the fast paced nature of this plot; the chapters were short and oozing with plot twists spurring you on to read just that little bit longer.
I felt Paris’ technique towards plot twists differed from her previous two books; although they all built up to the ultimate twist, Bring Me Back had an abundance of key twists placed sporadically throughout the plot. With twists every few chapters, your mind needs to be on the ball to keep up with the truth.
Bring Me Back hits the book stores on 8 March 2018, so just around the corner – I look forward to analysing this plot with fellow bloggers.
B A Paris is the internationally bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors and The Breakdown. Having sold over one million copies in the UK alone, she is a New York Times bestseller as well as a number one bestseller on Amazon and iBooks. Her books have sold in 37 territories around the world. Having lived in France for many years, she recently moved back to the UK. She has five daughters.
