#BlogTour #BookReview for The Proposal By S.E. Lynes @Bookouture #TheProposal @SELynesAuthor

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

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

When Pippa meets blue-eyed Ryan Marks, he is funny and charming. He is haunted by his past – but insists he is a changed man. 

He might just be the answer to all of her problems. And Pippa can tell the truth from lies. She’d know if she were in danger. Wouldn’t she?

From Amazon chart bestseller S.E. Lynes, The Proposal is a page-turning and utterly gripping thriller about the lengths we will go to for someone we love. Perfect for fans of Gone GirlThe Woman in the Window and The Wife Between Us.
I have read a few books by this author and after reading the blurb for this one I was completely intrigued and wanted to know more!
The book is very well crafted and I read it over two days.  I will admit that it took a little while for me to get in to the story and I didn’t really have an idea at the outset of where the story was going and I felt almost a little muddled reading it, but after reading rave reviews from others I was never going to give up on a book reported to be so good and I was delighted that it soon clicked for me and then I was off devouring the words written.
Whilst I guessed part of the story, I still took a big intake of air part way through when things started to reveal themselves!  The characters were well developed and whilst I wasn’t a particular fan of any of them, they worked very well together.
4.5 stars from me rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon – a different psychological thriller – very highly recommended and another cracking book from this author!!
