Thank you @simon.audio for the #giftedcopy! 

A woman will stop at nothing to seek revenge on the man she blames for her son’s death. 

Can you enjoy a book with an unlikeable main character? Ellen Saint, the main character of The Heights, is so filled with rage and hate that’s it’s hard to like her and I’m ok with that. This story is told from multiple points of view and the timeline shifts between past and present. It opens with Ellen recognizing Kieran, the man she feels was responsible for her son’s death. He’s paid his debt to society, but Ellen thinks a few years in prison isn’t enough. And she starts planning the ultimate revenge. 

Ellen never gave Kieran a chance when he was the new kid at school and her son befriended him. She didn’t like him from day one and eventually blamed Kieran for leading her son down the wrong path- all while overlooking her own not-so-great parenting skills and doing very little to actually help her son. 

This is a well plotted story of grief and revenge. Author Louise Candlish knows how to keep the suspense simmering leaving readers on the edge of their seats. Narrators Genevieve Gaunt and Milo Twomey really bring the characters to life. This is perfect for fans of psychological suspense, domestic suspense, shifting timelines, and multiple POVs. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

QOTD: What was your favorite Halloween costume that you wore when you were a kid? Or your most recent favorite Halloween costume? 

My grandmother made a clown costume for me when I was little. She sewed it all herself. I remember it being very colorful and fun.
