A dark, twisty, claustrophobic read
Jo Spain
A fabulous, page-turning read . . . Highly recommended!
Caroline England
Immensely entertaining . . . grips and chills in equal measures
Cath Weeks
I loved this book - tightly plotted, edge-of-seat gripping
Sophie Hannah
A sharp and sweetly twisted protagonist I couldn't help but cheer on
Caroline England
Intricately plotted, this gripping thriller is written with great style and has a host of wonderful characters to be loved and hated in equal measure
Lisa Ballantyne
An utterly addictive, OMG read! The main character was completely unexpected and absolute genius! Natalie will stay with me for a long time.
Lauren North
I loved this book; it got me hooked right from the first page. Natalie's voice is compelling, she is such a good protagonist. Seeing the world from her viewpoint was captivating, especially when all the twists and turns began. I found myself gripped, turning the pages, not knowing what was to come next. It's the type of book that keeps you up at night, that you don't want to put down, and I raced to get to the end to see how it would all turn out
Zoe Lea
Clever, gripping and gutsy with an unreliable narrator who I trusted and doubted in equal measures, knowing anything could and would happen
Cath Weeks
A dark, twisting story with a fascinating, compelling lead
Claire McGowan
I for one am terrified of the woman next door!
Louise Candlish
A dark, original and twisted story of revenge that is beautifully written and brilliantly executed. CJ Cooper does not put a foot wrong.
Fiona Cummins
I raced through it - edgy, tense
Harriet Tyce
Gripping, unpredictable and immensely satisfying
Sophie Hannah
Incredibly well-written, deliciously sinister and full of dark humour
Allie Reynolds
Praise for C. J. Cooper's debut, The Book Club:

An irresistible slow descent into darkness, with twist upon twist upon twist. C.J. Cooper's page-turner debut kept on surprising me right to the end
Catriona McPherson
Pacy twistability
