Keep You Close by Lucie Whitehouse

On May 27, 2016

By Sophia Whitfield
The new thriller from Lucie Whitehouse will keep you guessing until the final page. With a skillfully drawn set of characters, this novel twists and turns gripping the reader as the intensity builds.

The brilliant young painter Marianne Glass is found dead in her snow-covered garden. She is thought to have slipped in an accident from her roof but her best friend knows this could not be possible.

Rowan Winter was once her closest friend and knows only too well about Marianne’s paralysing fear of heights. She would never have been up on the roof.

Rowan suspects that Marianne’s past has caught up with her. She returns to the Glass family home after a ten-year absence to grieve for her lost friend and reconnect with a family she once loved more than her own.

The Glass family has moved out of the home and asked Rowan to house sit for them. It is here she discovers Marianne’s latest confronting paintings that are about to be exhibited in New York. With her career reaching new heights Marianne was the darling of the art world. Eclectic characters surrounded her but with success came jealousy from others. Everyone seems to have wanted something from Marianne.

As Rowan tries to piece together the last few years of Marianne’s life, a deeply tormented soul is revealed. Has she really fallen in an accident or is it something far more sinister?

If you like your thrillers dark with a strong female character then this is definitely for you. Buy the book in Australia here and in the UK here.
