The Soulmate Review
When I saw that Sally Hepworth was coming out with a new book, I knew I wanted to read it. (This is my third Hepworth novel, and I’ve enjoyed every one.)
This book grabbed me from the first chapter. It starts with such an interesting premise about a family that lives in a beach house on a cliff with a steep drop. It’s a dream house except for one problem — it’s a popular suicide spot. (And that is the most I will give away.)
This book is about marriage, parenting, and mental illness. It also explores perception and reality and how well you think you know someone.
The Soulmate is told in alternating points of view and alternating timelines. While this structure could lose readers, Hepworth presents it in a way that makes it easy to follow.
While this book falls into the mystery/thriller genre, there is no gore or excessive violence. This book contained lots of twists and turns I definitely did not expect. (It makes me want to read it again.)
Given the beach setting, this would make a great summer read.
