I Could be You grabs the reader from the opening pages – a dead woman and a missing child! From this point on the twists keep coming – just when I thought I knew something, the plot takes a turn in a totally different direction. Dee, the character we follow in the present day, used to be a top journalist but then various events, including the breakdown of her marriage and her mother’s death, cause her to become something of a recluse.

EXCELLENT PACEY READ FULL OF TWISTS AND TURNS some of which were a little predictable but it draws the reader in and I read this book pretty quickly.

Dee, the central character of the book and a former journalist has returned to her late parent’s beachside house where she befriends a tenant of a mobile home she is renting to Katie and her son Jake.

At the beginning of the book, Dee discovers a body of a female and a child’s buggy outside her house and decides to put her journalistic training to

This is an excellent, twisty, thriller, well paced with an explosive ending I didn't guess. I loved the female protagonist and all her secrets. My first novel by this author and looking at her GoodReads profile I have a lot of catching up to do! Recommended for all lovers of mystery/psychological thrillers.

Fast paced,with a likeable central character.
Lots of tangled twists in the story whilst you try work out who is dead and why,and the plot drip feeds you clues from the past.
Entertaining whilst reading,a few things easy to guess at.
Enjoyable,but possibly not very memorable.

I would like to thank the author, the publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an ARC of this book.. The book had lots of twists and I really enjoyed it. I really liked the main character and I look forward to reading more books featuring her

I received an advanced readers copy in exchange for an honest review

This one was pretty twisty- some more obvious than others but still an enjoyable ride. You really do you fall in love with the main female character. Solid four
