Review of Nearest Thing to Crazy by Elizabeth Forbes

Nearest Thing to Crazy is a real edge of your seat, gripping and pacy read that I didn’t want to put down.

Ellie Black arrives in a sleepy country village and is soon at the heart of local society. Everything about her from her red shoes to sports car screams glamour and different.

Ellie befriends Cass and Dan and soon they start to plan outings together. At first, Cass and Ellie seem to get on really well and Cass is excited about her new friend. However, soon Cass starts noticing strange behaviour from Ellie -  just small things at first, but the problem is that no one believes her – not even her husband Dan and daughter. As Ellie works her way into village life, Cass feels that people are turning against her and starts to feel that her life is spiralling out of control. Is Cass imagining things and blowing them out of proportion or is her distrust of Ellie justified?

This book is full of suspense and will really have you questioning what you believe to be true. I was taken by surprise so many times by the many twists and turns in the plot – it will keep you guessing right until the end.

This is a stunning debut novel that had me hooked from the very first page. I look forward to reading more from this author and wouldn’t hesitate to rate this as a five star read.

Thank you to Cutting Edge Press for sending me a copy to review.
