Never Go There by Rebecca Tinnelly is a tense psychological thriller exploring the rivalry between two very different women, and what happens when terrible secrets of birth and death become public knowledge.
The arrival of outsider, Nuala, in her husband’s hometown brings widespread panic to its residents and young bartender, Emma, is especially surprised to hear the news that she brings. Suspense builds steadily through a dual narrative and there are several explosive twists in the past that completely alter the reader’s perception of the present.
The novel’s greatest strength is the setting of Taunton, a village haunted by a string of tragedies. Tinnelly masterfully captures an atmosphere of mistrust and betrayal, creating a murder mystery that will haunt readers long past the final page.
If you’re looking for a gripping, dramatic and sometimes shocking thriller for your next read, you’ll love Never Go There.
