Get ready for a thrilling, addictive novel about marriage, betrayal, and the secrets that push us to the edge in Sally Hepworth's The Soulmate.
There’s a cottage on a cliff. Gabe and Pippa’s dream home in a sleepy coastal town. But their perfect house hides something sinister. The tall cliffs have become a popular spot for people to end their lives. Night after night Gabe comes to their rescue, literally talking them off the ledge. Until he doesn’t.
When Pippa discovers Gabe knew the victim, the questions spiral...Did the victim jump? Was she pushed?
And would Gabe, the love of Pippa’s life, her soulmate...lie? As the perfect facade of their marriage begins to crack, the deepest and darkest secrets begin to unravel.
Sally Hepworth is one of my favorite authors. Her stories are always entertaining.
From the opening scene, The Soulmate had me.
Pippa and Gabe live in a coastal cottage with their two daughters. From the beginning, you know something is not right. Their home is on a cliff and sadly, this has become a great place for people to commit suicide. Thankfully, Gabe has been able to help several people from jumping just by talking to them. When the book begins, a woman is by the cliff. As always, Gabe grabs a jacket and goes out there to talk to her and hopefully help her not jump. However, this time things don't work out and she dies.
As traumatizing as this situation is for Pipa, it becomes worse when it's revealed that Gabe knew the victim and that Pipa knew her husband.
The book is narrated by Pippa and by Amanda, the dead woman. Both characters unraveled the past and make sense of the present.
I listened to the audio and it was fantastic thanks to Barrie Kreinik, and Jessica Douglas-Henry.
Engrossing and atmospheric with a side of ghostly made this book another winner by Sally Hepworth.
