The Perfect Suitor by Cole Baxter – Review

On holiday in Egypt, Charlene’s husband, Christopher, is stabbed to death during a street robbery. Desperately unhappy Charlene slips into her own depressive world, staying in her house, afraid to face the world. Three years later she meets Samuel, online, who seems the perfect gentleman. When they meet in person she begins to realise that Samuel is not what he seems and in her mind she begins to question everything.

The book starts well with a quite shocking beginning but in the early parts of the story are quite slow. I have to say that this is not my normal read but I persevered with it. The book could be described as a ‘slow burn’ for me. There are some humorous parts and as the novel progresses, the pace does begin to pick up and the story moves faster.

Later, it develops lots of twists and turns as the pace hots up with quite an unexpected finale. For anyone who likes to think they can guess the ending half way through this is a book to test you on. On the whole a decent read with lots of twists, a shocking start and an unexpected ending.

My thanks to #Netgalley and #Inkubator Books for this ARC in exchange for an honest review
