*Many thanks to the author for my review copy*
Firstly, HAPPY CHRISTMAS!!!!! 😊
I’m thrilled to be hosting one of today’s stops on the blog tour for Caroline Mitchell’s new psychological thriller, Witness. Make sure to see what Abbie at Bloomin Brilliant Books has got for you guys too as she’s my blog tour buddy today!
Now, onto the good stuff! 🙂
About the book:
To Rebecca it was a brave decision that led to her freedom from domestic abuse. To Solomon it was the ultimate betrayal.
It’s been ten years since Rebecca’s testimony saw Solomon locked away. Enough time for the nightmares to recede, the nerves to relax; enough time to rebuild her life and put the past behind her.
Then one day a phone rings in her bedroom—but it’s not her phone. Solomon has been in her home, and has a very simple message for her: for each of the ten years he has spent in jail, Rebecca must witness a crime. And, to make matters worse, she has to choose the victims.
Fail to respond and you get hurt. Talk to police and you die. Ready to play? You have sixty seconds to decide…
As the crimes grow more severe, the victims closer to home, Rebecca is forced to confront a past she had hoped was gone forever.

I’m not going to lie, it took me weeks to read Witness. NOT because I didn’t like it, but because I had a ton of other books on the go as well so I didn’t get to read Witness in solid sittings! However, that did not stop my enjoyment of the book at all.
Witness is a stunning book. A study on how sociopathic people can live among us and nobody is any the wiser until it’s too late. Filled with loathsome acts, with a very twisted antagonist, it’s definitely a book that will unnerve you.
Reminiscent of Elizabeth Haynes’ Into The Darkest Corner with regards its treatment of all-consuming relationships and the havoc they can wreak, Witness is a very clever psychological thriller.
Caroline Mitchell has done an excellent job of delving into the psyche of a sociopath, furnishing the reader with all manner of horrendous thoughts from their mind. It is creepy, chilling and completely enthralling to read.
I cannot recommend Witness highly enough. Full of devastation and carnage, with a very intriguing premise, it’s definitely one to add to your list! Especially with today being Christmas. Go on, treat yourself… you won’t regret it! 😉📚
