ABOUT THE BOOK
Bo Luxton has it all—a loving family, a beautiful home in the Lake District, and a clutch of bestselling books to her name.
Enter Alice Dark, an aspiring writer who is drifting through life, with a series of dead-end jobs and a freeloading boyfriend.
When they meet at a writers’ retreat, the chemistry is instant, and a sinister relationship develops.
Or does it?
Breathlessly pacey, taut and terrifying, Exquisite is a startlingly original and unbalancing psychological thriller that will keep you guessing until the very last page.
EXQUISITE by Sarah Stovell is simply superb. Compelling, dark, and terrifyingly intense, this novel wraps its psychological tendons around you from the beginning and doesn't release you until the very end.
The narrative switches from Bo's perspective of what is happening to Alice's throughout, and this really lets the reader see deeply into these characters lives. Bo who seems to have a perfect life is instantly drawn to the younger, vibrant, if slightly damaged, Alice. While Alice immediately idolises this woman who seems to have everything in life that she wants for herself.
As the story develops it becomes obvious that they are both battling with the issues from their childhoods, and in each other, they find their saving grace, as it were. But a darker threat lurks beneath the surface, and I know I spent most of this book wondering just what was going to happen.
Edgy, atmospheric, and gripping, EXQUISITE by Sarah Stovell will keep you hooked and give you chills - and the ending is scarily perfect! EXQUISITE by Sarah Stovell should not be missed and I highly recommend it.
Sarah Stovell was born in 1977 and spent most of her life in the Home Counties before a season working in a remote North Yorkshire youth hostel made her realise she was a northerner at heart. She now lives in Northumberland with her partner and two children and is a lecturer in Creative Writing at Lincoln University. Her debut psychological thriller, Exquisite, is set in the Lake District. For more information:
