I was looking forward to reading this debut novel from Natalie Daniels as soon as I read the blurb. Oh! I was fascinated! Too Close is a tense psychological family drama which had me gripped throughout.
Overall, I found the book to be quite dark and uncomfortable as the author weaves a shocker of a story that was very emotionally disturbing at times. It tells a story of friendship, betrayal, deceit and is a very tense read.
The scenes are very well written and you can imagine yourself there. The characters are very believable. I really felt for Connie and the situation she found herself in. The author has impressively developed each character incredibly well, and the similarities shown between Connie and Emma's lives was fascinating. This is the feeling I love to get from a new author.
This story was magnificent and I just couldn’t put it down – one more twist, one more turn… I look forward to reading more from this new author. Brilliant debut!
Thank you to NetGalley, Random House UK and Natalie Daniels for the opportunity to read and review this novel prior to publication.
