Review

Warning, The Ex-Girlfriend is an addictive read!

 If I didn’t have a small child, I would have finished this book in one sitting as I found this psychological thriller well written. The change in plot I predicted however the motive and reasoning behind was a delightful surprise as I did not see it coming.

Georgia, stood up at the bar meets a friendly guy, Luke and they hit it off straight away. He is kind, caring and enjoys spending time with her. They get on so well she invites him to a family wedding after only a few months. Unfortunately, Luke carries baggage as still lives with ex-girlfriend, Cadence. Cadence is still obsessed with Luke and starts to stalk Georgia, leaving nasty notes and messages.

 A great read which includes mental illness, self-harm and abusive relationships, which Nicola Moriarty deals with in a sensitive and realistic way.

 Highly recommend for psychological thriller fans.
