BLOG TOUR ~ The Other Couple by Sarah J Naughton

Hi Everyone,

Today is my stop on the Blog Tour for The Other Couple by Sarah J Naughton where I have a review of her latest novel. I was thrilled to be asked by Tracy Fenton from Compulsive Readers who organised this tour in conjunction with Trapeze Books to take part along with some other fab book bloggers. You can find out who else is taking part in this fabulous Blog Tour at the end of this review
so without further ado, here it is:

With huge thanks to Sam Eades, Lauren Woosey, Sarah J Naughton and Trapeze Books, I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review..........

A dark, twisty psychological thriller set in paradise.

Asha wakes up in a Vietnamese hospital but she has been left for dead on the holiday of a lifetime after a night-time swim in the picturesque So Den Caves. We flashback to her fairytale wedding with Ollie, where a mystery guest puts in motion a change of events that will lead to murder. Unable to come to terms with the police's version of events, Amber returns to the scene of the crime. She remembers that there was another couple during the night of the murder. And the killer is still out there..........

Well, where do I start........I didn't like it, I absolutely LOVED it. A really twisty, turny and tense psychological thriller set on a beautiful island near Vietnam with picturesque views, a paradise where Asha and Ollie are going to have the honeymoon of their dreams but when Asha wakes up in a hospital in Vietnam with no recollection of what happened or how she got there and doesn't know where her husband, Ollie is??

The chapters alternate between their wedding day and their time on their honeymoon where it builds the story and each chapter reveals a little more of the story where you just know that there is something not right between Asha and Ollie but what exactly is it and why is Ollie acting so strange??

Just when you think you've worked out where the book is going and then another twist gets thrown into your path and you furiously read faster to find out which way it's going to go BUT I didn't expect that shocker of the twist to bring us to that ending. This is Sarah's second novel, the first been Tattletale which I haven't got around to reading yet but I definitely will and I look forward to reading more from Sarah. I would also love to see this optioned for a TV series. Go and get this book and settle down on the couch with a cup of tea/wine and some chocolate, you won't want to put it down once you've started and you definitely won't be disappointed.

The Other Couple is available in all good bookshops, libraries, on audio and is available on Kindle where it is currently £1.99 at the time of publication of this review.
