I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Fast paced, character driven thriller focusing on wife, Olivia, who uncovers her husband’s infidelity and plans to exact her revenge on a road trip through the American plains.

This is definitely more of a cerebral thriller, that relies heavily on the strength of its characters, particularly Olivia. The drama feeds off her paranoia and jealousy, clouding her judgement with thoughts of murder and payback. Their isolation also helps

 thoroughly enjoyed Wilderness, a brilliantly paced character driven drama/ psychological thriller hybrid with a fascinating central protagonist who gets just a little grumpy when betrayed…
An affair uncovered and a “healing” road trip to the wildest places soon becomes a twisty, addictive tale with Liv scrambling to deal with unexpected spanners in the works and save her marriage. Assuming she wants to. Girl changes with the weather so the whole novel is beautifully delightful.
Insightful human d

I read Halfway by B.E Jones last year and liked it enough to say a big, fat YES when I was asked to be on the blog tour for her newest book. But I was blown away but how much I loved Wilderness compared to Halfway! It had a completely different style of writing and plotting compared to her previous book and it worked perfectly for me! This is a brilliant psychological thriller with plenty of “love to hate” characters and lots of twists to keep you on your toes!

Liv has discovered her husband is a

I loved this book. It does have a Gone Girl esque to it. I could relate to Olivia's frustrations in her relationship, although thankfully not the cheating element, nor do I have murder in mind! Well written, good tension, descriptions of the trip, I now want to go on an American road trip!

This disturbing but gripping story unfolds through Liv’s eyes when she finds her dream chance at a new life in New York City shattered by her husband’s affair. Devastated and traumatised, she tries to give him a second chance but can she deal with the betrayal and its aftermath?
This isn’t so much a revenge story about a wronged woman as an exploration of the damage that betrayal and lies can cause to an individual and a relationship, as Liv questions what she thought was her happy marriage and t

Olivia’s husband Will is a cheating bastard. I’m really sorry, pardon my French and all that, but he is. He has forgotten that when he took Olivia for his lawful wife and promised to have and hold her for better or worse, it was only supposed to be Olivia, he was not supposed to add some skinny girl at work to the mix. Liv found out, was furious but decided to give the hubby and her marriage a second change. Except that the hubby went and forgot all about his promises all over again and now… Wel ...more

I think we’ve all been there, set off on a holiday with our other halves feeling the pressure for things to be perfect only for tensions to rise to the surface, though few of us have had this much deadly baggage!

A story about obsession and justifying our actions - the urge to lash out when we’ve been hurt or wronged. Though it’s hard to actually ‘like’ someone as damaged as Liv, I found myself on her side all the way despite that.

It’s definitely a case of ‘will she, won’t she’ as the story unfo

Wilderness is a terrific page-turner by B.E. Jones. In the harsh, vast expanse of the American wilderness, a terrifying thought slips into Olivia’s mind. It would be very easy to kill her husband out here. It could be passed so easily off as an accident. Would she get away with it?

Olivia and her husband Will, head to the States for a break, for a chance to heal their marriage after Will’s affair. But Olivia can’t stop thinking that she can never trust him again and she can’t forgive him for wha

2.5 Not awful but I didn't love this. None of the characters are likable and it jumps around a lot. Harder work than it needed to be.
