This is the best book I have read this year so far. The storyline was kept interesting and intense the whole way through, I genuinely had no idea where the story was going, I loved the writing style, it was such an easy read but kept you guessing till the last page!

Sue Watson is at her most chilling with her nail-biting new thriller, You, Me, Her.

Rachel has a lot to be thankful for. Married to her gorgeous husband Tom, she also has a son she adores and a life most people would give their right arm for. Having bought their perfect seaside home, Rachel cannot wait to join Tom and start their new life together in the house of their dreams – even if Rachel cannot shake off this feeling that all isn’t quite what it seems with her marriage. She knows that Tom isn’t being completely honest with her – and that he isn’t the only one in this marriage keeping secrets.

As Rachel begins to settle into her new home, she befriends Chloe and the two become very close. There is nothing Rachel enjoys more than shooting the breeze with her new friend over a long and boozy lunch. The only fly in the ointment for Rachel is that Chloe keeps prying into her marriage to Tom with her pressing questions. Tom has warned Rachel to stay away from Chloe and the way her husband looks at her friend is giving her cause for concern…

Have Tom and Chloe met before? Why did Tom want to move to the seaside? Is Chloe going to cause the end of her marriage? Or was her relationship built on a foundation of lies and deceit?

Sue Watson sure can write a complex, captivating and engrossing thriller that will keep readers turning the pages all through the night. You, Me, Her is a razor sharp exploration of a toxic marriage spiced with secrets, intrigue, danger and suspense full of shocking twists and turns readers simply won’t see coming. Chilling, unpredictable and jaw-dropping, Sue Watson’s You, Me, Her is a must-read for thriller fans.

Another engaging psychological thriller from Sue Watson. A thriller that explores the complexities of trust, friendship, and deception within what seems to be a loving marriage.

Tom (You) and Rachel (Me) are married and live with their son Sam in a beautiful seaside home. What is perceived as a perfect marriage is in fact a family life full of secrets and lies. Rachel receives an inheritance from her father and despite being terrified of water they move from their Manchester home to a picturesque setting on the Cornish coast overlooking the sea. Rachel and four year old Sam stay in their apartment while Tom oversees renovations on their new home.

Chloe (Her) who is the only friend Rachel has made since moving and Tom hates Rachel spending time with her.

This novel is full of suspense and suspicion, Tom with his secretive behaviour and Chloe with her probing questions stirs intrigue when reading. As per normal there are lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing what is going to happen.

This book is perfect for readers who enjoy satisfying psychological thrillers with well developed characters and skilfully crafted plots.

I would like to thank both Netgalley and Bookouture for supplying a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

You, Me, Her is a mystery thriller that keeps the reader on edge till the end.

Though I must have read too many thrillers already, because from the very start of the book I could guess what was going on in the book or maybe I have read something similar.

Even then it kept me interested throughout the book. It never got boring the way it is written and almost all chapters ended on a cliffhanger so it made the story gripping.

Only thing that made me roll my eyes was Rachel the main character's engagement with Chloe even with all the red flags from the very start. It was unbelievably stupid most of the times even though I could resonate her thought process but the way she kept accepting reasons for other people's behaviour, not just Chloe but her own husband Tom was making me furious. How dumb you can be to trust people so easily and then when doubts arise, letting all the reasons go down the drain as soon as the person in front started getting angry? It was really getting on my nerves the whole time.

Book rating : 3.5 stars

Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture and author Sue Warren for the ARC and opportunity to review this book.

If you are looking for secrets, lies and betrayal this is the book for you. There was a point when I had no idea who was trustworthy, who was actually the victim and who was as the villain!

I loved the way the author built the suspense. It kept my attention and had me wanting to keep reading. There was so much secrecy and suspicion and that ending blew me away! I was NOT expecting that.

The character development was very well done. I hated Tom, totally felt for Chloe and my heart broke for the main character. The author did a great job with the mental health aspect.

This was a binge worthy page turner for me and I’m already looking for my next read by this author.

4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is my first book by Sue Watson. Reading the summary of this book had me intrigued and after reading I have become obsessed with Sue’s writing.

Thank you for allowing me to receive You Me Her as an ARC!

Once Rachel moves down to Cornwall, the financial strain between her and Tom causes him to begin traveling again for work. Leaving Rachel lonely she begins to get closer to her realtor Chloe. Against Tom’s wishes Rachel and Chloe become friends.

The twist and suspense in this book were exactly what I was looking for. It kept me interested and intrigued the whole time.

You, Me, Her by Sue Watson is a thriller about a new couple who moved into their new home in the countryside. Rachel and Tom starts a new life with their 4 year old son in a bigger house after purchasing with Rachel's inheritance from her father. However, she is reunited with Tom only to realize he has built a big pool in their yard. Rachel is petrified of the water. Strange things also starts happening after she moves in. She just can't get over the fear that someone is in their home. Is her husband having an affair with their real estate agent, Chloe?

An inheritance, a real estate agent with keys to their house, strange shadows and a death...

While the story is fast-paced and entertaining to read, it is hard to ignore the red flags from the beginning. How Rachel can be so oblivious is beyond me. The main character and her naivety really make it hard for me to give any more than 4 stars for this book.

The ending is a definite shock factor but it was hard not to see from a mile away. After reading thriller after thriller, you tend to see this coming from authors.

Thank you to Netgalley, publisher Bookouture, and author Sue Watson for providing me with an ARC in exchange for my honest, unbiased review.

If Sue Watson writes a book, I will be reading it. I don’t even need to know the plot. I have read everything she’s written and have not been disappointed. Her latest is You Me Her, and I read it quickly.

Three people. One marriage. One murder.

YOU: My handsome husband Tom. You’ve given me everything — our beautiful son and our perfect new seaside home. I want to trust you, but I know you haven’t been honest about why you really wanted to move here. I haven’t been honest with you either…

ME: I make a secret promise as Tom kisses me and pours a glass of ice-cold wine to toast the first night in our dream house: I’m going to forget about his past. For the sake of our son, I’ll keep this family together, no matter what.

HER: Chloe is the only friend I’ve made since the move. I love our long lunches, even though she asks prying questions about my marriage. Tom hates me spending time with her, but I ignore his warning to stay away. I’ve seen the way he looks at her. It’s better to keep your enemies close…

You may think you know what’s going on in my marriage, but you’ll be wrong. Only three things are true: Someone is a liar. Someone is in danger. Someone is a killer.

Very compelling read! At times I wasn't sure who was to be trusted and who was suspect! Kept me on my toes. Loved the ending!

This was the kind of popcorn thriller I desperately needed right now. It’s been a while since I’ve had one of those compulsive reads that I just couldn’t stop tapping through (had to charge my Kindle for a little bit because I made the rookie mistake of not checking the battery level before starting) and finished this in two sittings. As someone that frequents the thriller genre, I’m always mildly skeptical when I see words like “unputdownable” to describe the story – mostly because they aren’t always like that. This book is deserving of that description! While I was able to figure out the ending, it didn’t ruin the wild ride we took to get there! There were a lot of times I wanted to shake Rachel to get her to pay attention and see things for what they were, but you can’t always have perfect characters, right? Not all of the characters are particularly likeable, but it amazed me how well Rachel just refused to see the red flags right in front of her. Overall, it was engaging and fun and I’m glad to have a new author on my radar to keep an eye out for!

Wow, I really enjoyed this one. These types of domestic thrillers where you don't know who to trust or what each character's motives are, are my absolute favorite types of thrillers to read because they're so relatable in some ways but also make you realize how normal your own marriage is in comparison. I was completely sucked into this and read the book in a day. I thought the conclusion was such karmic justice and just absolutely perfect. This was one of my favorite thrillers I've read in a long time. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I loved how fast paced was and how short the chapters were, the plot twist was a bit predictable but it was fun to read.. what I didn’t like about this book is the main character.. I mean it’s hard to root for a main character that is so adamantly stubborn in acknowledging the red flags that’s right in front of her ..

This is one of those books that has great twists and turns but is also incredibly frustrating with a moronic main character.

Rachel and Tom just moved into their dream house that they restored to their hearts desires. Tom has been staying at the house while Rachel and their son have been living at their old home several hours away. Once the house is done and the family is officially reunited in their new home, everything begins to fall apart for Rachel.

Rachel is about as naive and blind as a woman can possibly be. Does she even know her husband??

It’s definitely an interesting read but I think it could’ve been executed better.

Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the opportunity to read this ARC.

This one. Omg. Had me guessing the entire time. You think the title gives it away but it’s SOOOOO much more. Very clever writing BUT be aware this is NOT a murder mystery. It’s more a psychological thriller where a murder might happen WELL into the story. If you have a chance to listen to the audio, I highly recommend it. I am very excited to jump into the author’s back catalog.

As always, another great read from Sue Watson. A great story and just as I thought I had it all figured, another final twist.
