Charlene is devastated and traumatised by the death of her husband three years ago. She is plagued by guilt and refuses to leave her home. Therapy encourages her to start living her life again. She befriends Samuel on Facebook and they share a passion for art that tempts her to leave her home and meet up. Is he really so perfect or is he hiding something…?
The Perfect Suitor is a psychological thriller set in America.
The opening part of the book is so sad with Charlene struggling with her grief. She also has unhappiness due to her family circumstances and I felt so sorry for her, completely understanding why she wanted to protect herself physically and emotionally from the rest of the world. Her character felt very authentic; her reactions and vulnerability made her more human.
Samuel seems too good to be true and I wanted to plead with her not to trust him. Things start off well and he seems ever more perfect in person that he did online and on the phone. But gradually Charlene begins to notice things that make her suspicious. I enjoyed the way the author builds the tension and slowly reveals the truth about Samuel.
The Perfect Suitor is an engaging and emotive psychological thriller due to our investment in the lead character.
