Review of Don’t Stand So Close – Luana Lewis

Posted: February 15, 2015 in Review, thriller

dont stand so close

Alone in a grand, imposing house, Stella hears a knock on the door one freezing snowy winters day. Severely agoraphobic, Stella is wary of letting her in but relents on seeing the girls shivering body in thin clothes. The girl, Blue, seems nice as she warms up but is reluctant to leave. Then she tells Stella terrible lies about her husband Max. Are they lies though?

The story seemed interesting but I found it hard to get into the book, it jumped too much from past to present with no warning and I found it difficult to keep up. I never warmed up to the characters and found I didn’t really care what happened to them. That’s just me though; give this a try if you like psychological drama.
