The Soulmate

The Soulmate by NYT Bestselling author Sally Hepworth is a wild ride, and I loved it!

Pippa and Gabe have moved into their dream home in an Australian coastal town. Unfortunately, their home sits where people are known to commit suicide by jumping off the cliffs. Gabe has become adept at talking people off the cliff and preventing deaths. Until one evening, he isn't, and a woman plunges to her death. As the story unfolds, it turns out Gabe knows this woman, and questions arise about whether she actually jumped or was pushed.

This was a twisty one! With alternating timelines, dual POVs, short chapters dripping with secrets and suspense, and memorable characters, Hepworth delivered with this atmospheric domestic thriller. I was hooked from the start and found this hard to put down. No spoilers, but marriages and relationships are explored, facades are shattered, and suspicions fly, culminating in an ending I did not see coming! I enjoy Hepworth's writing, and she's quickly becoming a do-not-miss author for me. She has deftly plotted this fast-paced and wildly entertaining story. I highly recommend this to thriller lovers!

Thank you to NetGalley, St. Martin's Press, and Sally Hepworth for the opportunity to review this ARC. I enjoyed it!

My steep was Black Orchid from Mariage Freres. A black tea with hints of vanilla and chocolate.
