Review: The Skylight by Louise Candlish

 They can’t see her, but she can see them…

Simone has a secret. She likes to stand at her bathroom window and spy on the couple downstairs through their kitchen skylight. She knows what they eat for breakfast and who they’ve got over for dinner. She knows what mood they’re in before they even step out the door. There’s nothing wrong with looking, is there?

Until one day Simone sees something through the skylight she is not expecting. Something that upsets her so much she begins to plot a terrible crime…

Review: I adored this story, once again Louise Candlish has created a very twisted main character and I loved being inside of her mind for even this short a period of time. By the time you reach the end of chapter one you'll be sucked into Simone's world and possibly just be worried about what actions she might take. I love the fact that this book has you gasping with shock by the end of the first act, thinking you know things are going to be OK by the end of the second act and then hav all of those theories thrown into disarray by the end of the book.

Quick Reads like this are just so wonderful because they can be a great introduction to an author you haven't read before. If this is your first tastes of Louise Candlish, you picked a great place to start and for fan of this author already this is like a beautiful bonus book when we're in between her full length novels. I love the fact that this is a brand new fully formed story and I loved reading it. 

Being a quick reads book this book also has excellent pacing. There is something happening on every single page and the end of each chapter leaves you on a cliffhanger wanting more. The characters are dark and intriguing and you could totally see the events happening in real life. There are also multiple revelations throughout the book and so you're not waiting for a 'twist' to happen, they literally happen right the way through from the very beginning to the bitter end. 

I loved this book and I highly recommend picking it up!
