The Surrogate by Louise Jensen
Genre: psychological thriller
I had heard wonderful things about this book and after reading The Gift , I eagerly waited for its arrival.
The Surrogate did not disappoint. From the start I was lured in to the story of Kat, who is desperate to have a child and Lisa, who offers to act as a surrogate when they meet by chance. The two women share an old but troubled friendship though it is clear from the start, secrets are also shared and hidden. There are loops and turns throughout the book that lead you to question everything but unlike many psychological thrillers I have read recently, the ending is a complete surprise.
After reading The Gift and The Surrogate I have concluded Louise Jensen creates books which are designed for days or evenings when you can escape reality and indulge in reading a book in one sitting. They are page turners and you do not want to do anything but read.
I loved this book and have already bought a copy of The Sister to add to the top of my TBR pile. The only downside is once I have read it, there will be no more books of hers for me to read until she writes her next one.
Thank you NetGalley and Bookoutre for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
