Today I am thrilled to be sharing my review on the blog tour for Love Me To Death by Susan Gee. This was released on the 14th of May published by Aria Fiction.
Something sinister stirs in Stockport…
The police find a young woman’s body in the woods the same week a couple discover a crude, handmade doll in Lyme Park. But are the two findings connected… or a strange coincidence?
In a town full of loners and unhappy families, nothing is as it seems…
All Mr Anderson wants is a family. After his elderly mother died, he was almost unbearably lonely. Now it’s time for him to claim his own.
All Jacob wants is for Maggie to love him back. She only has eyes for the Vincent twins – but maybe he can make her see just how much he cares.
And everyone is a suspect.
A quietly sinister, utterly chilling new thriller from Susan Gee, the author of Kiss Her Goodbye. Perfect for fans of You and How to Get Away with Murder.
After reading and enjoying Susan’s debut novel Kiss Her Goodbye, I was really looking forward to her next novel. When I was given the opportunity to read and review Love Me To Death, I jumped at the chance and I was not disappointed. Love Me To Death is a first-class psychological thriller with one of the most disturbing serial killers around!
Susan has created a sinister story that had me chilled to the bone. It deals with the sensitive topics of mental illness, obsession, abuse and features a killer’s most gruesome of calling cards! It will take you on a wild rollercoaster ride full of twists and turns, that all lead to a thrilling outcome that I was not expecting!
The characters of Mr Anderson and Jacob are so complex that they would both benefit from a few sessions with Dr Phil I think! When reading a story like this, it is hard to wrap your head around feeling sympathy for a cold-blooded killer, but the backstory on one has you feeling that way. Susan has done a great job with both of them and they have been written perfectly.
Susan has a very unique writing style which really appeals to me. It is fluid and so visual that her descriptions of the snowy Stockport felt so real, it is like you are also in the story caught up in it its breathtaking surroundings, whilst being pulled into a nightmare all at the same time.
Love Me To Death is a dark tale that gets under your skin. It is a slow burn, but Susan is able to keep the reader engaged throughout as she expertly builds up the tension and suspense, keeping you on the edge of your seat. It was a pleasure to be able to read and review Love Me To Death which I recommend.
