The Villa, by Rachel Hawkins

The Villa by Rachel Hawkins

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


The word “switcheroo” popped into my head, more than once, when I finished listening to the Audiobook ARC of The Villa by Rachel Hawkins – ably narrated by Julia Whelan, Kimberly M. Wetherell and Shiromi Arserio.

I did a few double-takes during the final chapters: at one point, I actually protested: “Come on now! Seriously?!?! Again?!?!”

Oh dear: that’s as far as I can go without spoilers folks!

I did guess some of the plot, and I groaned disbelievingly at the numerous twists.
And I actually fast-forwarded the audiobook toward the end, just to make sure that there wasn’t yet another twist waiting to ambush me unawares! I just couldn’t take that never-ending ending anymore!

Again, you will have to experience this well-written thriller to understand this rather cryptic review. The story was a bit repetitive in some places, hence the one point deduction, but the premise was interesting and kept me hooked to the very end.
You will have to read it to believe it… or not!

My thanks to the author, publisher and Netgalley for an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
