REVIEW ~ Don't Close Your Eyes by Holly Seddon

With HUGE thanks to Kirsty Doole and Corvus, I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review......

Two sisters. A lifetime of secrets. One terrible reckoning. 

Robin and Sarah weren't the closest of twins. They weren't even that similar. But they loved each other dearly. Until, in the cruelest of domestic twists, they were taken from one another to different sides of the world. 

Now, in her early 30s, Robin lives alone. Formerly a famous rock star, now agoraphobic and suffering from panic attacks, she spends her days pacing the rooms of her house. The rest of the time she watches - watches the street, the houses, the neighbours. Until one day, she sees something that she shouldn't.....

Her twin Sarah got what she wanted - the good-looking man, a beautiful little baby and the perfect home. But she's just been accused of the most terrible thing of all. She can't be around her new family until she has come to terms with something horrific that happened a long time ago. But to do that, she needs to track down her twin sister.

But Sarah isn't the only person looking for Robin. As their paths intersect, something dangerous is set in motion, leading Robin and Sarah to fight for much more than their relationship....

Well, I thought that this wouldn't beat me raving about Try Not To Breathe, Don't Close Your Eyes knocks it out of the park, I absolutely LOVED it. It is a stunning novel with twists, turns, shock with a gripping psychological suspense where two sisters find themselves on the razor's edge of sanity. It is full of untold secrets, an awful lie, and a stifling guilt hold them back. Only one astounding act can set them free. Those last two chapters blew me away with that one last revelation and left me open mouthed too. Well done Holly, another triumph and can't wait to read Love Will Tear Us Apart.


Don't Close Your Eyes is available from all good bookshops, libraries, on audio and on Kindle and it is currently £0.99 at the time of publication of this review.
