The Ex-Girlfriend by Nicola Moriarty


Luke is the one. After everything she’s been through, Georgia knows she deserves someone like him, to make her feel loved. Safe.

The only problem is his ex-girlfriend. Luke says Cadence is having trouble accepting their break-up, but Georgia thinks there’s more to the story. She also has the feeling someone is watching her.

When everything starts to go wrong at work, at home, in her old friendships and her happy new relationship with Luke, Georgia starts to feel truly afraid.

Cadence wants what she has. What would she do to get it?

And can Georgia trust anyone at all?

My Review

An edge of your seat, fast paced psychological thriller that will have you flying through the pages at break neck speed and a definite candidate for psychological thriller of the year!

This is one of those books that it is almost impossible to review without giving away any spoilers and I certainly don’t want to ruin it for anyone. All the red herrings and plot twists is what gives this book an edge. Some were fairly predictable, others completely blindsided me. It is the level of tension and expectation of what will happen next that makes this a gripping page turner of a book. While the who becomes obvious quite quickly, the why will undoubtably surprise you!

Luke is every girls dream man, he handsome, charming, caring and makes you feel safe so it doesn’t came as a surprise to Georgia that Lukes ex-girlfriend is finding it hard to let him go.

As Georgia and Lukes relationship blossoms there is only one small hitch, Cadence, and it is not long before that small hitch escalates into a massive hitch. One that shows no signs of going away.  From sending Luke text messages to leaving notes on Georgia’s car it becomes clear that Georgia is being stalked by Cadence and when the troubles ultimately follow her into work Cadence decides to confront her and put an end to it all once and for all.

If only it was that simple!

The characters are well written and feel real, the tension and emotions come through the page sucking you in from the very start, I even found myself wanting to shout at the characters at one point!

Compelling, suspenseful and utterly captivating. If there is only one psychological thriller you read this year then this is the one!

The Ex-Girlfriend will be published on 31 October 2019 and is available to pre-order now from Amazon UK
