ABOUT THE BOOK
When Lauren takes a photo of a stranger on a beach and shares it online, she has no idea what will come of that single click.
Her daughters are surprised that she posted a photo without consent, but it’s only when she starts to get anonymous messages about the woman on the beach that she deletes the photo. It’s too little too late, and the messages escalate, prompting Lauren to confess to the woman. The woman has her own dark story, one that might explain the messages, but Lauren isn’t convinced. Then her ex-husband begins to harass her, telling her she shares too much online and brought this on herself.
She’s also dealing with other problems. A difficult client at work starts to show up in places he shouldn’t be. Her younger daughter is behaving out of character and Lauren can’t work out what’s wrong. And the cracks are literally beginning to show in her old South Dublin house, mirroring the cracks in her carefully curated life.
Meanwhile, the messages from the internet troll become more personal and more vindictive. Her friends feel she should stand up to her stalker, but Lauren isn’t so sure. And then she makes one small mistake that brings everything tumbling down.
ONE CLICK by Andrea Mara has quickly jumped into my top spot for the best books of 2018 and is a disturbing psychological thriller that cannot be missed!
Lauren's life has become very complicated since her husband left her for the neighbour down the road and raising two teenagers has its own unique problems as well. Throw in a creepy client at the clinic where she works and a holiday is definitely needed. Relaxing in Italy with her girls, Lauren soaks up the atmosphere and takes pictures for her personal photography blog. But when one picture of a stranger on the beach brings a troll into her life, it is another hassle that Lauren doesn't need. But this isn't just any troll, this is someone who knows her every move and as things take a serious turn, Lauren will find out just how invasive social media can be, and just how easily one click of a camera can bring your whole world tumbling down ...
Creepy, tense, and uncomfortable, ONE CLICK by Andrea Mara is everything you want in a psychological thriller and more. I devoured this novel in one sitting and I'm already eagerly awaiting Andrea Mara's next book. The characters are relatable, flawed, and very normal and in a world that is more and more social media obsessed, this element of the story really worked excellently for me and it will make you reassess what you share publicly from now on.
ONE CLICK by Andrea Mara is a multi-layered and compelling thriller that will haunt you from start to finish and keep you guessing every second along the way. Andrea Mara has quickly become one of my favourite authors in this genre and I cannot wait for her next book. ONE CLICK is a truly excellent story and as I said before it is topping the charts of best thriller of the year for me!
