Description

Colleen and Andrew haven't had sex in eleven weeks and three days [not that anyone's counting].

Their marriage is in crisis, they're drinking too much and both have secrets they're afraid to share. A teetotal week in a remote cottage could solve all their problems.

'‘Dan Brotzel is a master story-teller and observer of people and relationships. What is utterly brilliant is that he takes those things and brings them out into the open with humour, suspense and unexpected twists. I could not put this book down.’ -Christy Lefteri, author of Songbirds and The Beekeeper of Aleppo

‘Sharp-eyed but warm-hearted, Dan Brotzel’s portrait of a struggling marriage will make you wince with recognition. Happily it will also make you smile. With characters that are all-too-relatable, The Wolf in the Woods skewers the lies we tell ourselves in order to keep going. I loved it.’ -Stephen May, author of We Don’t Die of Love

What a strange little book ! I don't think strange is necessarily bad, but it was certainly different. I enjoyed it because it was quirky, and I liked the humour, and the intrigue. I honestly had no idea where this book was going. It was very original, and I enjoyed reading it.

This was a gripping story. Andrew and Colleen meet more than their match when they rent a holiday cottage next to some spooky woods. Their car becomes damaged and they cannot leave the cottage until it is mended. Mr wolf and Hildy keep them ‘entertained’ whilst they wait for the car to be mended. I had heightened anxiety whilst reading this book, it’s quite sinister and worrying. It kept me on the edge of my seat. The dark secrets are slowly revealed, and the thought that these may be revealed to others, worries the characters immensely.
A great short read.
Thanks to #NetGalley for the opportunity to read this ahead of publication in exchange for an honest review

Odd, strange and weird, I would be hard put to give you a honest description of this bizarre fictional trip.
But nevertheless, the author's dazzling style compelled me to read it until the end. I reckon that it was definitely a bit tricky at the beginning, a bit of a struggle to move forward but soon I must recognize that I fell under the charm of the narrative flow even if the plot was very very wobbly to say the least.
I will probably & definitely take another gander at this novel. I will simply try to tackle the plot differently..

Many thanks to Netgalley and Sandstone for this strange but interesting reading experience!
