‘AMAZING’ Marian Keyes
I disappeared on a Tuesday afternoon. I was there one minute and the next I was gone. They’ve never found my body…
It’s six in the morning during the hottest summer on record when Elizabeth O’Loughlin, out walking her dog, comes across Clare, a victim of a horrific knife attack, clinging onto life at the side of the road.
Clare dies minutes later, but not before whispering her haunting last words to Elizabeth.
When it becomes clear that Clare’s killer has more than one murder on his mind, Elizabeth has to take drastic action or face losing everything.
But what if she can’t stop a killer determined never to be forgotten?

About the author
Claire Allan is an Irish author who has previously written women’s fiction. Apple of My Eye is her second psychological thriller following 2018’s Her Name Was Rose.
The story is narrated in the first person in chapters by Rachel and chapters by the much older Elizabeth, ultimately the two main characters. At no time did I find this confusing, unlike some other books with multiple narrators.
The writing style was effective, pleasant and easy to read which is so important to me. Nothing jarred. There was always enough to keep my interest.
The plot is perhaps the most important thing and this was well constructed. There were plenty of potential suspects and while reading the book I probably considered all of them as the murderer, most in various scenarios. The suspense was maintained until the end. There were twists and turns but I think there was only one which surprised me.
It’s not the very best book I’ve ever read but it’s well worth 5*. I recommend it.
Fantastic read!! Didn’t want to put it down. Claire Allan has done it again!!! A must for any ex-Thornhiller/ Derry Girl! Class!!!
A good read for the price. It was fairly compelling and kept my interest.
