One moment of carelessness. Four shattered lives.

Literary agent Viola Matthews is sure she’s met Katherine Baxter before. So when her husband and bestselling novelist Samuel Morton introduces Viola to the quiet, unassuming woman he has offered to mentor, she knows their paths have crossed before. The question is where?

As their worlds collide and the bond between Samuel and Katherine deepens, Viola realises she must take control. 

If Viola is right, then Katherine needs to pay for something that happened twelve years ago.

39902797As my 16. book for reading challenge 2018, a book that is about a profession, I’ve picked one of my Netgalley outstanding books and gone for The Pupil by Dawn Goodwin.

Well written thriller about Kathy who is rebuilding her life following incident 12 years ago and 10 years of suffering from depression. She gets back to something she has always loved and dreamed about becoming her real profession one day, writing. She has this story she wants to follow and even finds support by well know author Samuel Morton and his wife Viola. Although Viola recognizes Kathy from somewhere,she can’t quite place her. She also takes instant dislike towards her and decides to find out who she really is.

Here the game begins and we start to untangle secrets from past and all the difficult relationships that shaped Kathy into who she is now. Following her journey fighting her own demons and overcoming obstacles in her way to become an author.

I enjoyed reading this book and it was very well written. It only took me about a day to read it as the story flowed nicely and characters kept me interested. It was slower pacing with a build up towards the big reveal at the end but it worked with this story well.

I hope to read more by this author soon.
