Blog Tour: What Lies Within by Annabelle Thorpe

Sunday, April 15, 2018
I'm definitely a seasonal reader, I like to read certain books at specific times of the year and for me mystery thrillers are for either halloween or as quick spring/summer reads - this novel is ideal for the latter! Today's post is a little late but it's another blog tour with the lovely people over a Quercus.

*What Lies Within by Annabelle Thorpe (352 pages) ★★★
On Amazon this book is categorised as a psychological thriller and a crime/mystery novel. The novel has a stunning cover and matches perfectly to the sun drenched, colourful country of Morocco which is where our three main characters come together again after ten years. We follow Paul, Freya and Hamad who've been the best of friends since their university days but when Hamad offers husband and wife Paul and Freya an offer they can't refuse, they move to Morocco; however it brings up family tension, doubts, a web of tangled lies and a plethora of devastating secrets...and a body.

I think this is the first novel I've read that is set in Morocco and the setting was perfect not only for the story but the atmosphere. The colourful, humid setting was fantastic, vivid and added so much to the novel. Another aspect that I loved was the mystery that became increasingly complex and intriguing as the novel progressed with more secrets unveiled. The writing was fairly quick and easy, it was definitely an enjoyable and interesting read and I would definitely recommend it as the perfect summer mystery thriller set in a beautifully colourful and intriguing country!

Will you be picking up this novel (it's only 99p on Amazon)? Do you like mystery thrillers?

  13. This sounds like a good read. The fact that it is based in Morocco and I've never read anything set there is what really draws me in.
