I just wanted a place where we could get away from it all. But coming here was one of the worst mistakes of my life...

After the year Aidan and I have had, we needed some respite. My husband is overworked, whilst I'm anxious about the past, so renting a night at this converted barn house in the countryside seems like the perfect place for the pair of us to relax and unwind. It might be situated at the bottom of a large garden, but it's private enough that we don't have to mingle with the homeowners who live nearby. Or at least that's what I thought...

No sooner have we checked in for our peaceful stay, Aidan and I are invited to share a drink with the owners, Bridgette and Logan, in their opulent home. I want to politely refuse. After all, we came here to get away from people. But Aidan accepts the invitation and that's when things start spiralling out of control. That's when I realise that this is not going to be the perfect escape after all...

My Thoughts

I appreciated how the plot took unexpected twists and turns. As with all of Daniel’s works, the writing was fantastic. All of the characters were well-developed, and I thought it was interesting to hear their points of view. I highly recommend to all psychological thriller lovers!
