He Said/She Said by Erin Kelly, Hodder & Stoughton (April 20, 2017), Advanced Reader’s Copy courtesy of NetGalley.
Thank you to @NetGalley for an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for an honest review; all opinions are my own.
There’s been so much buzz surrounding this book that I had to give it a try, even though it’s not my usual genre.
An excellent example of “griplit”, He Said/She Said tells the story of Kit and Laura, a couple who become enmeshed in the life of Beth, the victim of a vicious incident. From the prospective of the two characters over several years, we see how an unexpected discovery, and the choices that follow, change the trajectory of everyone’s lives. This unpredictable story makes the reader question how far some people will go to be heard them, while others protect their secrets.
Although I found this book slow to start as the story set itself up, its twists kept me invested in the outcome. I think it will definitely appeal to those who like an intriguing, psychological story, with a bit of a twist.
