Review of You Think You Know Me by Clare Chase - Five *


Blurb:

Sometimes, it’s not easy to tell the good guys from the bad … 

Freelance journalist, Anna Morris, is struggling to make a name for herself, so she’s delighted to attend a launch event for a hip young artist at her friend Seb’s gallery. 


But an exclusive interview isn’t all Anna comes away with. After an encounter with the enigmatic Darrick Farron, she is flung into the shady underground of the art scene – a world of underhand dealings, missing paintings and mysterious deaths … 


Seb is intent on convincing Anna that Darrick is up to no good but, try as she might, she can’t seem to keep away from him. And as she becomes further embroiled, Anna begins to wonder – can Seb’s behaviour be explained away as the well-intentioned concern of an old friend, or does he have something to hide?








Review:

This was unexpected! Having read lots of Choc Lit authors, I was expecting a nice romance. In hindsight the cover should have given me a clue! This was a taut thriller about the art world with a very credible heroine and some very dodgy characters!

I really enjoyed reading about Anna as she delved deeper and deeper into the mystery of her old university friends and the appearance of the mystery man at the art gallery. I was no wiser than her - who could she trust?

The ending was heart-stopping and I'm sure I actually stopped breathing! Can't recommend this book highly enough - it's a keeper as well. I'll read this one again!

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
