The Affair by Sheryl Browne #Blog Blitz #Review

I am super excited to share my review  for The Affair by Sheryl Browne on Blog Blitz on publication day 

The Book

The moment she opened her eyes, she knew everything had changed. The stale taste of alcohol; her uneasy stomach. She looked at her husband sleeping peacefully, and knew she would never tell anyone what happened last night.

You will think you know what happened to Alicia that night.

You will see a desperate wife, lying to her husband.

You will watch a charming lover, trying to win her back.

You will judge her, just like everyone else.

You will assume you know what happens next. But everything you think you know about the past, the relationships, what drives Alicia and her husband to lie… is wrong.

My Thoughts

Sheryl Browne never ceases to amaze me, you always know what you are getting and she always has that wow factor in her books But OMG this one is without a doubt her best book to date. I was hooked from the very first page and devoured it in one sitting…. it is beyond gripping and I loved every single page. I cannot begin to tell you how good The Affair is. Not forgetting how gorgeous the cover is.

OMFG the beginning of this story…. wow…. the rest of the story….wow….I am speechless! Sheryl’s writing skills are so powerful it will blow your mind I am an absolute wreck after reading it. The author takes us on  roller coaster ride where we follow a story that alternates between different characters. with each chapter leaving you wanting more. It will certainly get under your skin Sheryl what are you doing to me?!

Full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the end. Just when I thought I had it all worked out BOOM another twist. I have to say I wasn’t expecting that! For me this is what a psychological thriller is all about it is absolutely perfect and ticked all the boxes for me.

This is a must read for psychological thriller fans I cannot recommend it enough giving it all the stars.

Sheryl Browne brings you powerful psychological thriller and contemporary fiction. Sheryl’s latest psychological thriller THE AFFAIR – the second of a three-book deal – comes to you from fabulous BOOKOUTURE. A member of the Crime Writers’ Association and the Romantic Novelists’ Association, and previously writing for award winning Choc Lit, Sheryl has several books published and two short stories in Birmingham City University anthologies, where she completed her MA in Creative Writing.

So why does Sheryl write in two genres? Quoting E. L. Doctorow, Sheryl says: “Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can only see as far as your headlights…” This she thinks sums up a writer’s journey, you never quite know where you are going until you get there. You might start with an outline, but a strong character will always divert from the plot. If Sheryl’s not sure where a character is going, she simply has to trust him to show her the way. Plus, according to one reviewer, she also has a scary insight into the mind of a psychopath.
