5*, book review

Review: I See You by Clare Mackintosh

I See You by Clare Mackintosh

This book isn’t out for ages but I couldn’t wait to read it and I couldn’t wait to tell you all about it! An easy 5* review.

‘Out of all the books that I read in 2015 my absolute favourite was I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh. It was a book that left the reader reeling. If you haven’t read it then you should. Now. And once you’ve finished you’ll have plenty of time to get excited about Mackintosh’s second book, I See You, which is released on 28th July 2016.

I was so excited to read I See You that as soon as I heard that ARCs were about I had to get one. Thankfully the publisher, Little Brown Book Group, UK, took pity on me and I managed to get hold of a very early copy which I had to immediately start reading.

I do wonder how Clare Mackintosh found writing I See You, her first book had such a phenomenal reaction that I would imagine it’d be a really hard act to follow. The risk of scores of disappointed fans must have played on her mind. Yet despite such pressure, (and yes, I am assuming here) Mackintosh has once again produced an excellent read.

Totally different to I Let You Go, I See You is based in London and tells the story of normal people, caught up in extraordinary circumstances. I really don’t want to give too much away so I won’t say much about the plot, but wow, what a concept. I also really liked Kelly, the police officer trying to piece the puzzle together and hope that she will feature again in Mackintosh’s books. And as for the ending….where is part two?!!!

Brilliant writing, a fantastic plot, believable characters and I have little doubt, another hit for Mackintosh.

Thank you so much to the publishers for giving me a copy of I See You via Netgalley in return for an honest review.’

I See You will be released on July 28th 2016 and can be preordered from Amazon UK and Amazon US now.
