My Review:

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Gwyn GB’s debut novel Islands, set on the island of Jersey where I live and so couldn’t wait to read Lonely Hearts. I wasn’t disappointed and couldn’t put the book down. Lonely Hearts is a fast-paced thriller with a shocking twist. So good! I loved Islands and this book, although quite different, is another excellent read.

DI Claire Falle is investigating a murder. As she finds out more about her victim, she discovers that he was a client at a dating agency. Rachel works works at the agency and she’s being stalked. She is terrified and DI Falle is desperate to protect her and ensure that Rachel doesn’t become another victim. Rachel’s situation goes from bad to worse and… well, you’ll just have to read the book.

Lonely Hearts has two timelines, the present day covering DI Falle’s investigations and Rachel’s desperation over being watched by an anonymous person, as well a

s going back to the past where the reader visits Rachel’s childhood. The two timelines are interwoven cleverly and seamlessly.

I was drawn in from the first line to the very last and loved it. I can’t wait for Gwyn GB’s next book.

A 10/10!
