Ad – review. I was sent a copy of this book for review purposes and all thoughts are my own.

Today is another book tour that I am involved in. Beneath the fear by Sheila Rawlings is a physiological thriller which is my go to genre.

About the Author:
After graduating from Medway Collage of Art and Design (now the University of creative arts), Sheila enjoyed a long career with a magazine publisher,  where she was responsible for the production of the weekly issue and various other publications. An avid reader since childhood, working with journalists rekindled Sheila's love of the written word, prompting her to write her debut novel Truth and Revenge.

About the book:

Spoilt and indulged since childhood, Samantha Copeland believes bad things only happen to other people. However, after witnessing her husband’s murder during a bank robbery in Oxford, that illusion is cruelly shattered.

Traumatised by the experience, Sam eventually retreats to the Cornish coast, where she hopes to heal her fragile state of mind. Unfortunately, instead of the peace she so desperately craves, she soon finds her vulnerability tested to breaking point by a series of unnerving and unexplained incidents. However, after meeting her enigmatic neighbour, Tony Walker, and local handyman, Nathan Scott, Sam soon discovers the worst is yet to come.

My thoughts:
Beneath the fear is my kind of thriller. Gripping and intense with twists and turns. The way that Rawlings writes gripped me from the start and kept me hooked. It's a fast paced and easy read which is exactly what I like. I could feel Sam's grief within the pages and the other characters  are also well put together. This is my first read from Sheila Rawlings and  I'm looking forward to reading more of her work. If you are on the look out for an easy to read thriller than I definitely recommend this one.
