Wow!!! This was such a gripping psychological thriller I have read! Tess Stimson has done it again!

Three couples–Stacie and Felix, Millie and Tom and Kyle and Harper. Stacie and Felix own the Glass House a beautiful house that is for sale. MIllie and Tom wants to buy the house as it is their dream home. So does Kyle and Harper from Millie and Tom. This is a thriller based on these three couples.

This was a fast paced thriller with the twists and turns. The characters are all interesting and was mainly told from Millie’s and Tom’s point of view. The author has managed to grab the attention of the reader and from the beginning till the end, I was literally hooked into the story that I actually stayed up all night reading the book! The characters are unreliable and a bit of psychopaths themselves. And the end…that was completely unexpected and I was so hooked that I felt like I was watching a thriller movie!! This was really a gripping psychological thriller that will keep you at the edge of the seat till the end!

So if you are looking for a thriller that will keep you up all night, reading about psychopaths, then this book will be one for you–worth five stars!

Many thanks to Netgalley and Avon for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
