Really enjoyed reading this - anything similar you can recommend?

Mark Edwards, 'Because she loves me' and 'The Magpies'. Both psychological thrillers. The first was recommended on here ages ago along with 'Girl on the train' and I really enjoyed it.

Have you tried any Nicci French books? Some of those are similar. I presume you have also read Gone Girl?

"Her" might be worth considering...

The Lie

It's currently the big thing

The good girl and Daughter were both good similar reads. I'm going to try The Lie too I think.

YY to Her,and I have just read Disclaimer by Renée Knight which has been cited as the next GOAT grin

Before I go to sleep by SJ Watson

DaisyQuantock Tue 05-May-15 23:15:07

I Let You Go by Claire Mackintosh, very grippy and unsettling, couldn't put it down.

Broken Harbour by Tana French, actually anything by her is good.

Loved Elizabeth Haynes, Into The Darkest Corner but it scared me to death! But then I'm a Big Jessie. grin

Apple Tree Yard, Louise Doughty also v good as is The Wicked Girls, Alex Marwood.

I'm reading Disclaimer (Renee Knight) at the moment ... might try The Lie next.

 anything by Liane Moriarty 

Provencalroseparadox Fri 15-May-15 07:11:01

Under your Skin by Sabine Durrant and also Alys Always by Harriet Lane

Another vote for I Let You Go. I couldn't put it down - a really gripping read (I had liked Girl on the Train, but wasn't as bowled over as I'd expected to be from reviews). Still have the character's and events from I Let You Go going round in my head - amazing first novel.

Mark Edwards The Magpies.

The quality of silence is coming out soon by Rosamund Lupton, she wrote sisters in 2013. I was sent an advanced copy to review - it's stunning.

Another recommendation here for Keep Your Friends Close by Paula Daly!

hollyisalovelyname Sun 01-Nov-15 20:07:55
