TUESDAY EXCERPTS: “THE THERAPIST”

Welcome to another Tuesday celebrating bookish events: First Chapter/Intros, now hosted by Socrates Book Reviews; and Teaser Tuesdays hosted by The Purple Booker.

Today’s feature is a review ARC that will be released on July 13, 2021:  The Therapist, by B.A. Paris.

Intro:  One: 

The sound of excited voices draws me away from the box of books I’m unpacking.  It has been so quiet all day that it’s hard to believe I’m actually in London.  Back in Harlestone, there would have been familiar external noises; birds, the occasional car or tractor, sometimes a horse going past.  Here, in The Circle, everything is silent.

Teaser:

“Leo, you can’t!”  I said, mortified that people would think he was rude.  So he’d agreed to mute the group instead. (76 %).

Synopsis:

When Alice and Leo move into a newly renovated house in The Circle, a gated community of exclusive houses, it is everything they’ve dreamed of. But appearances can be deceptive…

As Alice is getting to know her neighbours, she discovers a devastating secret about her new home, and begins to feel a strong connection with Nina, the therapist who lived there before.

Alice becomes obsessed with trying to piece together what happened two years before. But no one wants to talk about it. Her neighbors are keeping secrets and things are not as perfect as they seem…
