Coming For You by Deborah Rogers – Book Review


PUBLISHERS BLURB 

A brutal crime. A traumatised mind. A victim no one believes…

Amelia Kellaway is hiding a secret. Still deeply traumatized by a kidnapping incident she suffered three years ago, Amelia is struggling to cope with a crippling anxiety disorder where she compulsively checks her locks and doors. She’s also experiencing frightening blackouts that strike at random. The root cause of her anxiety is her unshakable belief that her previous attacker, Rex Hawkins, is stalking her. She’s been to the authorities but they’ve dismissed her concerns as the paranoid delusions of a traumatized mind.

But are Amelia’s fears really unfounded? Could Rex Hawkins still be out there, waiting for her to drop her guard and make a mistake? Or is Amelia slipping deeper into neurosis and at risk of losing her mind?

Another gripping tale of psychological suspense from Deborah Rogers, Coming for You is a terrifying portrayal of a young woman on the brink, with shades of Hitchcock and Gillian Flynn.

If you like tense, gritty psychological suspense thrillers, you’ll love book 2 in the Amelia Kellaway series from exciting new crime writer Deborah Rogers.

MY REVIEW 

Amelia is a lawyer by day, she’s good at her job, but inside she’s falling apart. She’s recovered from her physical injuries after being kidnapped, raped and her eventual escape that has left her with half a foot, but psychologically she’s desperate. She’s obsessive about security, taking a different journey home every day and compulsively checking her apartment is locked over and over……

She is convinced her attacker, Rex Hawkins,  is still looking for her.

Ethan, a Detective, tries to convince Amelia she is safe, that Hawkins can’t hurt her anymore…as they grow close she starts to believe him……

Oh my nerves…..this is an incredibly tense tale, as you see Amelia struggle with her day to day life, her slipping deeper into fear and the effect this has on her….

Was she right to be so scared, or is she really losing her mind?

Coming For You has a quite slow pace as you get to know Amelia, but the tension builds as you turn the pages and it made me check the windows were closed that night for sure. I loved every fear filled minute and I can recommend this to anyone who loves a psychological thriller.

Thank you to Deborah for an eARC of Coming For You. This is my honest and unbiased review.
