Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
Brenda Bouverie has come on a singles holiday to Turkey to escape. Intent on indulgence, she’s looking for sun, sea and ... distraction from a past she would give anything to change.
But on this singles holiday no one is quite who they seem. First impressions are unreliable and when the sun goes down, danger lies in wait. As someone targets the unwary group of strangers, one guest is alone in sensing the threat.
But who would get involved, when getting involved only ever leads to trouble?
Singled Out subverts the sunshine holiday romance, taking readers to a darker place where horrific exploits come to light, past mistakes must be accounted for and there are few happily-ever-afters.
A simmering psychological suspense laced with moral ambiguities, for fans of Louise Doughty, Sabine Durrant, Gillian Flynn, Elizabeth Haynes, S.J. Watson and Lucie Whitehouse.
Everyone brings baggage on a singles holiday - a taste of Singled Out:
... It’s never been the ones who flirt with him who interest him; it’s the ones who don’t. They’re in awe of him; they understand their lack of status. Whatever, the result is captivating – a reticent glance here, a half-smile there, a quiet sublimation into the background. He lusts after their shy restraint, almost without control.
... She reached into her bag and drew out the letter. The envelope was worn, the contents familiar. She knew what would follow but the pull it exerted was too strong. She read from beginning to end; her punishment, an act of contrition, the price for stealing a night of freedom.
... He felt the blood draining from his forehead. In the flaming midday heat, a chill rattled his spine. He wanted to die. Right here, right now. But of course, it got worse.
... What did she know? What facts did she have, to back up the slivers of circumstantial evidence and the prickling ache in her gut?
... ‘You don’t know if I spiked it.’ He smiled. ‘Are you going under? Do you think?’
... ‘Why couldn’t you stay out of it? You ruined... everything.’

The writing in this debut novel is impressive with descriptions so rich, you'll feel like you're touring, sunbathing, and feasting on delicious meals in Turkey yourself. Mystery cloaks every page, and answers are doled out in a page-turning manner. But a caution to sensitive readers--the subject matter deals with sexual assault (that's not a spoiler as the opening scene depicts this) and misogyny, sometimes in quite graphic detail. Normally I would shy away from material like that, but I felt comfortable in the author's hands given the strong female lead who carries the novel, and the important message that's unveiled.
An impressive debut novel for fans of psychological suspense. I look forward to more of this author's work.
I had other stuff to take care of today, but did it get done? Not a chance. I was locked away with ‘Singled Out’ until I finally finished it, wishing there was already a sequel. The way she writes her characters throughout the book is nothing short of masterful and I have a new favourite heroine in Brenda Bouverie; the twists in her personal tale made my jaw drop. I seriously can hardly wait for Lawson’s next book.
Author Julie Lawford not only wrote a great story, but se did it with style and a vocabulary that should be commended. The author took a group of strangers on holiday to a foreign land and made them real. I was caught up in wanting to know all about them.
Singled Out is a mystery that kept me guessing and wanting to know who it was taking advantage of innocent women. The author didn’t let me know until the time was right.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery.
a description of Turkey that makes you want to take your next vacation there. hopefully,
there is more to come from Julie.
