Book Review: No Longer Safe by A.J. Waines

Genre:Psychological Thriller
Published by:Kindle Direct Publishing
Publication date:2/4/2016
Format:Kindle Edition
Source:Kindle Unlimited


She was your best friend. Now she’s your deadliest enemy – and there’s nowhere to run…

When Alice receives an invitation from Karen, her charismatic University friend, to stay in a remote cottage in Scotland, she can’t wait to rekindle their lost friendship. But two more former students arrive – never friends of Alice’s – and as the atmosphere chills, Karen isn’t the warm-hearted soulmate Alice remembers. Barely is the reunion underway before someone is dead and the fragile gathering is pushed to breaking point.

As the snow cuts them off from civilization and accusations fly, Alice finds herself a pawn, sinking deeper into a deadly game she can’t escape.

No Longer Safe is a chilling psychological thriller that delivers a delicious sting in the tail.

My Thoughts

I really was glued to this book and stayed up way to late to finish it, thank goodness Ipads have light dimmers on them!

The plot in this book is Wowzers! There are so many different twists and turns and the ending is definitely an eye-popper. I was definitely weirded out by all the goings on and that is what makes a great psychological thriller in my book, the tone, the suspense it was just fabulous, even the parts that would normally be considered dull added a surrealism to the story that just set the tone of the story really well.

Characters are also wonderful and really well developed, you could have went to Uni with anyone of these characters, their realness seeps through the flashbacks to Uni and then how they all treat each other now, it is just a fabulous look into how we as humans interact with each other. You'll love some of them and you'll totally despise others.

Setting is pretty much out in the middle of nowhere and that sets the scene for this story really because without the remoteness of the cottage none of the plot would have been possible at all. Plus who doesn't love to read about beautiful, snowy out of the way places.

So if everything was wonderful you are probably wondering why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 and that is because even though the ending is shocking it just seemed to be stretching it a bit. I can't say to much or I'll give it away, but the realness of the setting and characters makes that last little piece of the plot just seem over the top a bit. Again hard to explain without giving anything away.

If you love a good eerie story that will have you going "what the beep" at the end then you should give No Longer Safe by A. J. Waines a chance.You can find it here on Amazon for purchase or if you are a Kindle Unlimited Subscriber this book is available now for free.
