You ever read a book that grabs you so hard, it literally presses pause on your life? I’ve been reading just such a book. 

In Too Deep….

by Samantha Hayes, sucked me in from the first page and held down the pause button on my life. Literally for the past 5 days, I’ve not wanted to have a conversation with my husband or spend quality time with my kids. I’ve just wanted to read this book and find out WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!

Most gripping read of 2017

Four months ago, Rick went out to buy a newspaper. He never came back.

His wife, Gina, is struggling to deal with her loss, and her daughter’s mood swings are getting worse. Then she receives a phone call from a woman at a country hotel, confirming details of a booking Rick made before he vanished. 

Desperate to find out more about his disappearance, Gina and her daughter take the trip. But there is something very strange about the hotel, and the family that run it. 
Soon Gina is unsure that Rick even made the booking – but one thing is clear: both mother and daughter are in serious danger.

I’m not even really sure how to write this review.

No Spoilers…

Except to say that if you love mysteries and thrillers you will love this book. I have never read a Samantha Hayes book before, now I want to read them all!

A Giphy Review…

So in an attempt to review this book, spoiler free, I’m going to use GIF’s to show you my experience of the book….

At the beginning I was like…. wait what…. 

Then I was all…

I know what’s going on here….

And then I was all…

What the hell….as the veil was slowly lifted behind each characters perfect life…..

And then the ending…

When I thought I had it all figured out….


If you love thrillers, you will love this book. I so thought I had it all figured out, I was so VERY wrong. The last page left me feeling… like….

Seriously…. read it and then come back and tell me what you thought of it! SO SO good.

It’s a well plotted, psychological thriller that will leave you on the edge of your seat! 

Solid five star read for me!
