When her neighbor’s fifteen-year-old nephew goes missing, Sonia is the last person that anyone would ever suspect. At forty-three, she is a strikingly attractive wife and mother. And like the River House, her lovely home overlooking the Thames, Sonia’s life is a picture of perfection and normalcy—until she meets Jez. From the moment he shows up on Sonia’s doorstep, the gorgeous teenage boy awakens a torrent of memories that she has worked a lifetime to forget. Drawn to Jez by a compulsion that she scarcely understands, Sonia takes him captive—prepared to sacrifice everything to keep him. Evocative of thrillers by Chevy Stevens and Sophie Hannah, Kept in the Dark is a haunting debut novel about obsession, desire, and the potential darkness in us all.

Why I can’t wait:
Okay. What the bloody hell is going on in this woman’s head? I’m seriously super excited about this one! It sounds like a really dark kind of thriller, something that keeps you reading until 2 in the morning. And you know how much I love those books, don’t you? ;) DEFINITELY waiting for this one.

What are you all waiting on this week? Make sure to leave a comment with a link to your own post so that I can visit you guys back! :)
