You think you know me

Sometimes, it’s not easy to tell the good guys from the bad …

Freelance journalist, Anna Morris, is struggling to make a name for herself, so she’s delighted to attend a launch event for a hip, young artist at her friend Seb’s gallery.

But an exclusive interview isn’t all Anna comes away with. After an encounter with the enigmatic Darrick Farron, she is flung into the shady underground of the art scene – a world of underhand dealings, missing paintings and mysterious deaths …

Seb is intent on convincing Anna that Darrick is up to no good but, try as she might, she can’t seem to keep away from him. And as she becomes further embroiled, Anna begins to wonder – is Seb’s behaviour the well-intentioned concern of an old friend, or does he have something to hide?

You Think You Know Me is her debut novel, and is available now on Kindle, and in paperback from 7th September.


My Review

I find it hard to believe that this is a novel by a debut writer as I know many writers with several years’ experience who would be proud to have written this book. Clare’s writing is accomplished and immediately pulled me into Anna’s world as she tries to forge a career as an Arts journalist. The book started off as a simple romance – or so I thought. I was totally unprepared for the mind games and suspense that were to follow as Anna has to decide whether to trust her boyfriend Darrick or her old school friend and boss, Seb. I loved the way Clare plays with the reader, setting up a scenario only to pull it down a few chapters later as the suspense hurtles towards the finale – and what a finale! I read this book over two days as I really wanted to know what the right decision was and if Anna made the right choice. This book will suck you in – brilliant!

When reading all the reviews I just can not wait to read this for myself. I adore stories of hardship and how they unfold and hopefully have a good ending.
