My Own TBR Pick – The Night Visitor by Lucy Atkins (I own it)
Book Description —
Professor Olivia Sweetman has worked hard to achieve the life she loves, with a high-flying career as a TV presenter and historian, three children and a talented husband. But as she stands before a crowd at the launch of her new bestseller she can barely pretend to smile. Her life has spiralled into deceit and if the truth comes out, she will lose everything.
Only one person knows what Olivia has done. Vivian Tester is the socially awkward sixty-year-old housekeeper of a Sussex manor who found the Victorian diary on which Olivia’s book is based. She has now become Olivia’s unofficial research assistant. And Vivian has secrets of her own.
As events move between London, Sussex and the idyllic South of France, the relationship between these two women grows more entangled and complex. Then a bizarre act of violence changes everything.
The Night Visitor is a compelling exploration of ambition, morality and deception that asks the question: how far would you go to save your reputation?
‘Such a sophisticated, layered read, I absolutely revelled in it’ Clare Mackintosh
I read so many of my friends reviews on Goodreads for this book and added it right away! It has been on my TBR list for a few months and plan to get to it very soon! I love books with old mansions and creepy houses! Have you read this one? What is your next TBR pick? Please share any books you’ve read that has an old/creepy house in the setting. I would love to add it to my growing TBR pile!
