Review: He Said/She Said by Erin Kelly


Print Length: 416 pages
Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton (April 20, 2017)

From Goodreads.com: In the hushed aftermath of a total eclipse, Laura witnesses a brutal attack. She and her boyfriend Kit call the police, and in that moment, it is not only the victim's life that is changed forever. Fifteen years on, Laura and Kit live in fear, and while Laura knows she was right to speak out, the events that follow have taught her that you can never see the whole picture: something, and someone, is always in the dark.

My Rating: 4 stars out of 5

I went back and forth on my opinion of this story several times while reading it. There were so many good things about it - the author's definite gift with words, and the parts that were so compelling that I couldn't bring myself to put the book down. Then there were the not so good parts - the fact that the book not only jumps in time from 1995 to 2015, but also switches character perspectives that it was a little hard to follow at times. There was also the fact that certain parts of this story were not as riveting as others. In fact, they are more along the lines of what I would call "filler" pages. Parts that were only added to increase the word length of the story. 

As the story progressed (I would say about the second half of the book) however, it really started to pick up the pace as old secrets were revealed in a spectacular twist that I did not see coming! 

Overall, I am sure this story will appeal to those who enjoy a good thriller novel. I would read more from this author!
