I just finished reading the book “Keep Me Close” by Jane Holland. Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.
The book tells the story of Kate, a woman who is trying to care for her mother who has early onset dementia while holding down a demanding job in a Publishing firm, and starting a new relationship. She has to deal with finding a good caregiver for her mother, dealing with an acrimonious boss, and a rather creepy author. Then she starts receiving threatening letters which claim she was responsible for the death of her boyfriend. But the kicker comes when bruising and signs of abuse begin to appear on her mother’s body.
In her quest to find out who is causing her mother’s suffering, Kate and the reader begins to suspect everyone.
This book has many twists and turns, some expected and some not. Kate tries her best to remain strong but her homelife and worklife start to unravel.
I liked the beginning of the story, it hooked be quite quickly. The story had interesting characters which were well written, and there was alot of intrigue surrounding each character and their motives.
In the end, I liked the story right up until the last chapter. I felt the ending was too cliche. I have read ALOT of psychological thrillers, and I was disappointed because I suppose I was expecting a more clever resolution.
If you don’t read alot of psycholocial thrillers, then I know you will love this book. I suppose I have read too many of these types of endings to appreciate them as much anymore.
Happy Reading Everyone!
