The Bed I Made by Lucie Whitehouse
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Featured on The TV Book Club on More4 on 18 July 2010.

A dark tale of obsessive love and the danger a woman faces when she tries to break free. It’s compelling, emotional and builds to a gripping finale. I loved it.

Comparison: Maggie O’Farrell, Nikki Gemmell, Kate Saunders.

If you like Lucie Whitehouse you might also like to read books by Paula Hawkins, S. J. Watson and Gillian Flynn.

Synopsis

The Bed I Made by Lucie Whitehouse

I haven't given up on you and I'm not going to. It's time to stop playing hard to get now. When Kate meets a dark, enigmatic man in a Soho bar, she doesn't hesitate long before going home with him. There is something undeniably attractive about Richard - and irresistibly dangerous, too. Now, after eighteen exhilarating but fraught months, Kate knows she has to finish their relationship and hopes that will be the end of it. But it is only just the beginning. Fleeing London for the wintry Isle of Wight, she is determined to ignore the flood of calls and emails from an increasingly insistent Richard. But what began as a nuisance becomes an ever more threatening game of cat and mouse.

Reviews

'Gripping, believable and unnerving'
Independent on Sunday

'Whitehouse writes marvellously in an emotionally hypersensitive, lyrical, Maggie O'Farrell sort of way'
Wendy Holden, Daily Mail

'Compelling'
