The Proposal by SE Lynes

You invited him into your life. And now you can never go back…

Pippa wants a second chance. Recently divorced and unhappy at work, she uproots her life to move to a beautiful farmhouse in the countryside, determined to make a fresh start. But Pippa soon realises: your troubles are never far behind.

One night, when Pippa is at home alone, a stranger arrives at her front door. Pippa invites him in, and, in a moment of madness, makes him an offer she believes could change everything…

Ryan is funny, charming, and haunted by his past. There in the kitchen, over a glass of wine, Pippa thinks Ryan might be the answer to all of her problems. But how well does she really know him?

Pippa can tell truth from lies. And she’d know if she were in danger. Wouldn’t she?


The first thing you should know, dear reader, is that I am dead…

As the opening sentence of this intriguing thriller it is sure to pulled you in and will have you gripped until the final page!

The story is told through Pippa’s journal entries and blog posts.  The story begins slowly, all the best psychological thrillers do! However you should pay attention!it makes up for that as it gathers pace and builds up to an excellently written conclusion. 

Overall, if you like dark psychological thrillers then you will enjoy this dark and twisted story.

This was my first read of this author and I look forward to the next novel.
