Genre: Psychological Suspense Mystery
First Class Psychological Suspense From a Major New Voice in Fiction
Margot Lewis is the agony aunt for The Cambridge Examiner. Her advice column, Dear Amy, gets all kinds of letters - but none like the one she's just received:
I don't know where I am. I've been kidnapped and am being held prisoner by a strange man. I'm afraid he'll kill me.
Please help me soon,
Bethan Avery has been missing for years. This is surely some cruel hoax. But, as more letters arrive, they contain information that was never made public. How is this happening? Answering this question will cost Margot everything
DEAR AMY by Helen Callaghan is a great read in that it's engaging enough, but not too intense where the suspense starts to stress me out. Although I think this is relative depending on one's taste or level of tolerance for psychological suspense mysteries.
HCallaghan smoothly brought the pieces of DEAR AMY together. Unlike other psychological suspense mysteries where there's massive info-dumping to justify and seam clues, the author made Margot Lewis' story realistic what with her pending divorce and professional issues, it made her relatable and her odd life almost normal.
DEAR AMY is not a cozy but I enjoyed cuddling with this one. It's an easy read with enough peaks to keep me glued to the story. I definitely recommend you add this to your Fall TBR list.
