Review: The Primrose Path by Rebecca Griffiths


As a teenager, Sarah D’Villez famously escaped a man who abducted and held her hostage for eleven days. The case became notorious, with Sarah’s face splashedimage across the front of every newspaper in the country.

Seventeen years later, Sarah’s attempt to build a normal life for herself in London has failed. When she hears of her kidnapper’s impending release from prison, fearful of the media storm
that is sure to follow, she decides to flee to rural Wales under a new identity, telling nobody where she’s gone.

As Sarah settles in to her isolated new home and gets to know the small community she is now part of, it soon becomes creepily apparent that someone is watching her. Meanwhile, back in London, her mother makes a shocking discovery – something she fears will put Sarah’s life in danger. She must urgently find her missing daughter before it’s too late…

If this is anything to go by Rebecca Griffiths is on her way to being a best selling author. The Primrose Path is disturbing, mysterious and quite unpredictable and reminds me of why crime is one of my favourite genres.

Griffiths dives into the story with a little look into the past of a disturbed and abusive family to set the tones for a book that will be additive and laden with twists and turns. 

Aside from that, Griffiths’ descriptive writing enables you to hold a clear image of the Welsh surroundings which I found to be breath-taking. And the addition of a few Welsh words into the mix was educational and a pleasure to read.

Thanks for stopping by and welcome to my blog! I'm a twenty-something year old bookworm living in London, UK. My favourite genres are YA + Adult fiction, Crime fiction, Historical fiction and the occasional non-fiction book thrown in. I try to post a review once a week but that's not always possible with a full-time job. The books I review are either bought, borrowed or ARCs/proofs gained from publishers. I always write an honest review whether or not the book has been bought, but I will state when it's an ARC/proof. Happy reading!
