Circle of Betrayal by Ruth O’Neill #BookReview #PublishNation #4.5*

Lena Farnham has it all: a job she loves, a wonderful husband, a huge house, and a baby about to arrive.

She’s the happiest she’s ever been, and she can’t believe how lucky she is.

Unfortunately, Lena’s luck is about to run out.

Someone is following her, and not only that – they’re leaving frightening messages, and threatening her perfect life. Even worse? Her husband Sean doesn’t believe any of it.

When the baby finally arrives, however, Lena’s follower is the least of her worries. Everything in her life is about to change, but why? What did she do to deserve this? And what isn’t Sean telling her?

Lena embarks on a journey to uncover the lies, deceit, and betrayal from the one person she loves and trusts the most… her husband.

Even the most perfect people can have dark pasts – and even darker secrets.

Exciting & Unpredictable!

An enticing read full of hidden secrets.

Lena Farnham seems to have it all; a wonderful job – which she loves, a gorgeous home – large enough to never want to move and an attentive husband with whom she is expecting their first child. Then she gains a stalker and suddenly life isn’t so good; she’s frightened and husband Sean doesn’t seem to appreciate how badly it’s affecting her. But it’ll all be okay once the baby arrives . . . won’t it?

This is the second novel I’ve read by Ruth O’Neill and, whilst I enjoyed the first one, I have to say that it’s noticeable how the author’s writing is maturing. This is a thrilling read! To begin with, I thought that everything was, perhaps, just too obvious but the secrets of this story are hidden in layers and revealed bit by bit. A riveting read – and one where I couldn’t have worked out where it was going. Exciting and unpredictable, this is both cleverly crafted and wonderfully written, and a novel which will keep you reading until the very last. Definitely an author to keep an eye on, and a book I’m both happy to recommend and give 4.5*.

My thanks to the author for my copy; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
