have never been played by an unreliable narrator quite like the way His Hers did me I must say I m impressed even though I also feel like I need to suspend my disbelief Everything makes perfect sense in the end, but.HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE Newsreader Anna Andrews is tasked to cover a murder case that her ex husband, DCI Jack Harper, is investigating in Blackdown village, the place where she grew up that holds so many memories she d rather forget.This book is a tough nut to crack I kept trying and it kept throwing me off at every turn It s full of red herrings that will confuse and possibly drive you mad Everyone has a motive, but who would you believe I don t think I ve ever seen a detective journalist pairing, and that s what intrigued me when I read the blurb Jack and Anna have their fair share of shortcomings which make them liable, and I held my distrust towards them.There s not a single moment wasted in this book I was drawn to the brutal murders as much as I was to all the short bursts of flashbacks from Anna s tragic past They re so horrid, it s best you keep in mind every triggering subject matter you can think of.The story becomes complex, twisted, and freaky overtime Add to that the small town setting surrounded by dark creepy woods, the feeling of urgency to get to the bottom of things, the constant second guessing, and the shocking ending.Gah, you won t be able to put it down If you like this book, try these next The Kind Worth Killing Jar of Hearts 2.5 STARSI m not sure I read the same book that so many others loved I enjoyed her debut novel, but felt this one

is twisted, outrageous, and bizarre, which can work, but in this case, not for me I had many, many issues including view spoiler the cat abuse.Thanks to NG and the publisher for my advanced copy OUT

going on until the very end, and I was very wrong The ending was great and tied up the novel brilliantly The first POV is that of Anna Andrews, a news journalist that has finally been working in her dream job She is anchoring a noon hour broadcast on BBC She has given up a lot to get here, started from the very bottom rung of the ladder, even sacrificing her relationship with her husband which ended in divorce She is never really happy with herself though, is an alcoholic and eats almost nothing to maintain the look that she wants She thought her job was secure, until the woman who had this job previously, comes back After a maternity leave for two children, Cat Jones has come back to claim what she feels is her rightful place I picture her sitting in what, only yesterday, was my chair.The mental image doesn t make me feel sick, it makes me feel thirsty My fingers come to the rescue, and automatically start to search inside my bag for a miniature whiskey Anna is demoted back to a correspondent She is assigned to cover a murder in sleepy Blackdown Woods, a place that she never wanted to return to This assignment will open up everything you need to know about Anna, and the cult of friends that she was a part of in high school This group of girls did some pretty horrible things to be included in Rachel s exclusive group You have never known a group of girls like this one The second POV is that of DCI Jack Harper, he is the inspector who is assigned to the murder in Blackdown Woods He is shocked when he sees the victim, he knows her, intimately He has his own problems He has a 2 y o toddler with a woman whom he isn t married to and still holds a flame for Anna, his first wife He is generally bored with his job until the first girl is found murdered in Blackdown Woods He will have lots of action to keep him busy for the next weeks and he will never be the same again.There is a third POV, that of the killer I paid attention to every word and still didn t guess the outcome Everyone is a suspect, everyone has motives.You won t be able to stop reading this one, clear your day and your night This author is a master of psychological fiction, I just wish that she hadn t chosen to include animal cruelty in her last book as well as this one.I received an ARC of this novel from the publisher through EdelweissHis Hers is set to publish July 28, 2020 Alice Feeney

implies is told from two perspectives His is DCI Jack Harper, head of MCT in Blackdown, Surrey a quintessential, sleepy and beautiful English town in the stockbroker belt He s a bit crumpled, not living his best life having retreated to Blackdown from the Met following a tragedy Her is Anna Andrews a temporary BBC news presenter filling in for Cat Jones who has been on maternity leave Anna has plenty of secrets and there are several versions of her When a Jane Doe is discovered stabbed multiple times in Blackdown Woods what follows is a tale of the unexpected as you would expect from Alice Feeney The novel is well written and has a lot of excellent descriptions and metaphors of what it s like inside His and Her heads The plot is good and you think you have the truth sorted and then you realise you so haven t as both perspectives are contradictory It hastwists than a corkscrew and at times it s so dark you can barely see a hand in front of your face It s mysterious, tense, creepy and spooky The setting especially of Blackdown Woods adds an extra dimension of atmosphere as even the most benign woods at night can feel scary There are revelations and shocking events to keep you wanting to read on and on Although I did work out the big reveal it in no way spoils the enjoyment Overall, is a terrific read and highly recommended for fans of the genre Special thanks to NetGalley and HQ stories for the Arc I had such a good time reading this one and I definitely recommend checking it out especially if you have enjoyed other books by the author This one was fun because the author didn t write herself into a corner as there were multiple options up until the big reveal The writer kept me on my toes as I kept floating around in my head different theories as to what was going on.Anna Andrews is a tv anchor on a BBC news program and she has been assigned to cover a murder in the countryside village s I had such a good time reading this one and I definitely recommend

murder in the countryside village she grew up in, Blackdown DCI Jack Harper is investigating the case and he doesn t want others to find out he knew the victim The story alternates between the perspectives of Anna and Jack.First of all, Anna and Jack are pretty miserable characters so if that isn t your thing, you might want to steer clear of this book However, as you learnabout them it s not difficult to see why they are just kinda floating thru life at the moment and not super upbeat type people And to be honest, when I m reading a thriller or mystery like this, I think it actually enhances the story when the characters lives are messy There is one reason I decided to give this one 4 stars rather than a perfect 5 stars As I mentioned before, I did have a few theories going on while reading and one of them turned out to be true in the end Basically I threw a bunch of ideas at a wall and one actually stuck So I can t say my mind was blown when it came to the ending In a perfect thriller or mystery, I am caught completely off guard at the end which wasn t the case here I did enjoy seeing it play out though and I do think it will manage to surprise quite a few readers.If you are looking for a good distraction from real life type read, this is a good one that should hold your interest.I received a free arc of His Hers by Alice Feeney from Macmillan in

woods I was second guessing everything the whole way through as the story unravelled Just when I thought I had everything figured another twist would take me in a new direction As mentioned, the characters aren t the most likeable and I know some won t enjoy a book like that but if you do or if you ve read and loved another of Alice Feeney s books then you will love this one We all hide

creature is going to wrap around your ankle and pull you down, down, downHaving said that, I also find her twists a little over the top not left field, mind you That s something very different Feeney s twists are always plausible, just never probable Does that make sense His Hers falls into that same vein I liked the ending In fact, I liked it quite a lot But it wasn t probable Feeney has always been incredibly daringdiving into the dark underbelly of the world, a place most authors would never dare I appreciate that What I don t appreciate is the animal mutilation she seems so keen to add into her novels, and a star was deducted in response I also felt there were a couple plot holes and found myself a bit confused about one thing in particularmaybe you can help me figure it out view
