Book Mail – The Night Visitor by Lucy Atkins

Who can name the movie my keychain is from? Extra bonus points to the correct answer 🙂 And a follow up, what’s your favorite Tarantino film?

Thanks to Quercus Books for the advanced copy in exchange for my honest review!

THE NIGHT VISITOR – Lucy Atkins (Releasing July 3rd, 2018)


Here’s the synopsis:

Professor Olivia Sweetman has worked hard to achieve the life she loves, with a high-flying career as a TV presenter and historian, three children, and a talented husband. But as she stands before a crowd at the launch of her new best seller she can barely pretend to smile. Her life has spiraled into nothing but lies, and if the truth comes out, she’ll lose everything.

Only one person knows what Olivia has done. Vivian Tester is the socially awkward, middle-aged housekeeper of a Sussex manor who found the Victorian diary on which Olivia’s book is based. Now Olivia’s unofficial research assistant, Vivian has secrets of her own.

As events move between London, Sussex, and the idyllic South of France, the relationship between these two women grows more entangled and complex. Then a bizarre act of violence changes everything.

The Night Visitor is a compelling exploration of ambition, morality, and deception that asks the question: How far would you go to save your reputation?


I loved her other book THE OTHER CHILD, so I’m really excited to dive into this one.
