Review – Keeper by Jessica Moor

Synopsis:

He’s been looking in the windows again. Messing with cameras. Leaving notes. 
Supposed to be a refuge. But death got inside.

When Katie Straw’s body is pulled from the waters of the local suicide spot, the police decide it’s an open-and-shut case. A standard-issue female suicide. 

But the residents of Widringham women’s refuge where Katie worked don’t agree. They say it’s murder.

Will you listen to them?

An addictive literary page-turner about a crime as shocking as it is commonplace, KEEPER will leave you reeling long after the final page is turned.

My Review:

I will keep my review short as you would have seen all the fantastic reviews for Keeper already. I will start my saying that Keeper is definitely one of my favourite reads in 2020. It has everything you want from a thriller, it is gripping, twisted and deceptive. But what makes this book stand out to me is how much it has gone under my skin and affected me emotionally.

There are different forms of domestic abuse and Jessica has so skilfully demonstrated how a manipulative and abusive relationship can be so devastating. I love how the narrative was played out in the book and how it was such a character driven story. It was fast paced but never lacked the depth I was so looking for in a thriller. The complex characters, the countless twists and turns, and the beautiful and lyrical writing have really got me transfixed in this story.

I was so invested in this story that once I finished, I could not stop thinking about it and talking about it with my bookfriends. It is absolutely compelling and distributing but so eye opening. A book that will leave a huge void in your heart once you finish reading it.

I absolutely love it and cannot recommend it enough!

Thank you so much Ellie and @vikingbooksuk for this amazing copy of Keeper. Thank you! I love it so much!
