Dead to Her by Sarah Pinborough

Happy Book Birthday to Sarah Pinborough! Today I'm a stop on the TLC blog tour for her latest, Dead to Her, which released today from William Morrow!

I usually write my own synopsis here but this one is a tricky one and I really don't want to give away too much, so here's the blurb from the publisher instead:

Marriage can be murder…

Marcie’s affair with Jason Maddox catapulted her into the world of the elite. Old money, old ties, old secrets. Marcie may have married into this world—but she’ll never be part of it.

Then Jason’s boss brings back a new wife from his trip to London. Young, attractive, reckless—nobody can take their eyes off Keisha. Including Marcie’s husband.


Some people would kill for the life Marcie has—what will she do to keep it?

I'm a little bit of a fan girl when it comes to Sarah Pinborough. She joined the ranks of must read authors in my TBR very early on with her Dorchester released horror and she's stayed at the top of my must read list ever since.

Pinborough is a master at building suspense. Even in a mundane setting, she builds a sense of underlying, subtle dread that becomes more intense as the plot progresses. That signature suspense is oh, so present in this latest!

This book is all twists and turns and secrets galore! Secrets from Marcie's past, secrets from Keisha's past...secrets from everybody's pasts!

The story alternates between Marcie and Keisha's perspectives and, while they're not exactly likable, they are fun to read about.

If you've read Pinborough before, you'll definitely expect some of the turns the book takes. Remember those horror roots! If you're new to her, all I can say is that you shouldn't expect this to be exactly in the vein of other current thrillers. Pinborough has her own style and is a stand out in the genre!
