My March BOTM Review – The Soulmate is a thrilling, addictive novel about marriage, betrayal, and the secrets that push us to the edge by Sally Hepworth. The Soulmate is a thrilling and suspenseful mystery.
There’s a cottage on a cliff. Gabe and Pippa’s dream home in a sleepy coastal town. But their perfect house hides something sinister. The tall cliffs have become a popular spot for people to end their lives. Night after night Gabe comes to their rescue, literally talking them off the ledge. Until he doesn’t.
When Pippa discovers Gabe knew the victim, the questions spiral…Did the victim jump? Was she pushed?
And would Gabe, the love of Pippa’s life, her soulmate…lie? As the perfect facade of their marriage begins to crack, the deepest and darkest secrets begin to unravel.
“Turns out I don’t need someone holding my board and pushing me into the wave – I can do it myself. Several times as, as I ride the wave, I have that glorious, blissful feeling… like I’m flying. It’s even better than the feeling I had the day Gabe took me surfing. Because it taught me that Gabriel Gerard isn’t the only one who can make magic. I can make magic too.” – Pippa
BOTM Review – The Soulmate
Are you really shocked I chose another thriller? You shouldn’t be. Although I would categorize this as a slow-burn thriller. A warning has topics of infidelity and suicide throughout the book. I think that’s what made me not like the book as much as I thought I would or as much as everyone else did. Now don’t get me wrong Hepworth threw in a lot of plot twists as the story went on and the ending was nothing I could have saw coming.
“I didn’t come here to die.” – Amanda
Ultimately this book made you think and question your own values of relationships and love. Do you marry for convenience or do you marry because they are your soul mate? How many times would they have to mess up before you did something about it? Hepworth shed light on the good and bad sides of marriage, trust, mental illness, love, and comfort.
I fell in love with the two female characters, Pippa and Amanda. Although I did keep wishing we saw more of Amanda throughout the book but the main story and conflict highlighted Pippa. I would recommend this book to other readers who like slow-burn thrillers. I would not recommend it to readers who don’t like topics such as mental illness, suicide, and infidelity. Overall I give The Soulmate a four-star rating.
