The Fear - C.L.Taylor || Netgalley Review

When Lou Wandsworth ran away to France with her teacher Mike Hughes, she thought he was the love of her life. But Mike wasn’t what he seemed and he left her life in pieces.

 Now 32, Lou discovers that he is involved with teenager Chloe Meadows. Determined to make sure history doesn’t repeat itself, she returns home to confront him for the damage he’s caused. But Mike is a predator of the worst kind, and as Lou tries to bring him to justice, it’s clear that she could once again become his prey…

 The million copy Sunday Times bestseller returns with a taut, compelling psychological thriller that will have you glued to the edge of your seat


I have loved Cally for a long time and have read every book as they have come out so when i saw this was on netgalley for early review i knew i was going to get in on it.

This is a hard one to review because ever since finishing this, i literally dont know how to feel. This book has sat with me for days now and even now, im still not sure. It was creepy, it was odd & i just i dont know. However what i know is that its one of those that sits with you and its not very often that that happens so when it does, i know its something major.

Lou Wandsworth is returning to her home time to clear out her dads house after he passed away - its the first time she has been back since she was a teenager and fled after she ran away to france with her karate teacher. She planned on just getting on with her life, but when she comes across new information about Chloe Meadows what was going to be answers turns into so much more. There is more to Mike than what we are the reader are led to beileve.

This is told from a few different perspectives, i kind of guessed how some were connected quite quickly,but that didnt deter from what was going to happen. I was left shocked and kept guessing even up until the end, literally the last page still managed to throw a curveball in there.

The fear is that, it literally gave me fear, its not scary in your typical way but it still chills you with the possibilites, i flew through this to the point i finished it in 2 days - and the only reason that it wasnt quicker was because i had to sleep. Nothing is as it seems and everything you assume is thrown up into the air. 

Totally worth a read - it sticks with you.
