The Ex

22 March 2021
Written by: Nicola Moriarty
Review by: Dee Atkinson
Genre: Suspense

Georgia is in her mid 30s and a nurse. She’s never had much luck with the men in her life. She has been through a lot and finally feels safe in her relationship to Luke, who is a sales rep. To start with they meet by chance, though Georgia has a sneaking feeling she has seen him before.

They hit i off, start dating and fairly soon Georgia decides Luke is ‘the one’. The only issue is the ex – ex-girlfriend – Cadence, who Luke is still living with until the lease is up.

Cadence is having trouble letting go. She leaves messages on Georgia’s car, and texts and emails Luke all the time. Georgia also has the feeling she is being followed.

Things start to go wrong for Georgia - at work, at home and in her friendships. She starts to feel afraid, and rightly so.

How far will Cadence go to get back what Georgia’s got? Or is there a twist in the tail that will cause Georgia to question her trust of anyone? And what really is Cadence’s story?

Moriarty holds out on us until the very end, drawing out the suspense. Captivating reading until the very end!

The odd crass word and innuendo, but well worth the read!
