Steady with the Photographs: Disclaimer

DisclaimerDisclaimer by Renee Knight

What if you realized the book you were reading was all about you? When an intriguing novel appears on Catherine’s bedside table, she curls up in bed and begins to read. But as she turns the pages she is sickened to realize the story will reveal her darkest secret. A secret she thought no one else knew.

First Impressions: A good page turner and easy read but it didn’t quite meet the ‘unputdownable’ status.

Highlights: The twist! The twist! I didn’t see that coming. It turned the story from a standard thriller to a pretty sad and unsettling story.

If I was an editor: I would want a bit more intrigue scattered about before the twist changes everything. The author of the mysterious novel didn’t seem a fully convincing character and I don’t think the son’s first person chapters necessarily added a lot to the story.

Overall: A good read that suddenly becomes compelling close to the end.
