The Poison Tree by Erin Kelly

I have just spent half an hour writing a review of The Poison Tree and it has disappeared. I have no idea what I did wrong.

So, in short – great read, good psychological thriller. Reminiscent of Rebecca and A Secret History. Straight-laced student, Karen, meets glamorous decadent wanna-be actress and her life changes forever. She moves in with Biba and her brother for the long summer holiday and the book climaxes in a dreadful event.

It’s written from Karen’s point of view, weaves between the present and the past and kept me guessing throughout.

A great holiday read.

There – a very short review.
