The Girl with a Clock for a Heart: A Novel by Peter Swanson

The Girl with a Clock for a Heart: A NovelThe Girl with a Clock for a Heart: A Novel by Peter Swanson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a fab read! I'm a sucker for a good psychological thriller, throw in some romance and past history and you have this fabulous read.

Its been over 20 years since George saw the only girl who broke his heart. As time went on, he realised he never really knew her, just who was she this girl he had fallen head over heels in love with.

The lead up at the beginning of the book was enthralling, it kept me turning pages. If I say much about this book I would be giving a lot of it away, so I don't want to give spoilers as there are enough in some other reviews.

Just to say, I sat in the garden and read this from cover to cover this morning.

Its a bit dark in places, it has its unique form of funny moments in too I thought, thoroughly thought out and well written book.

Thank you to Faber and Faber Ltd via Net Galley for allowing me a copy to read and review.

George Foss never thought he'd see her again, but on a late-August night in Boston, there she is, in his local bar, Jack's Tavern. 

When George first met her, she was an eighteen-year-old college freshman from Sweetgum, Florida. She and George became inseparable in their first fall semester, so George was devastated when he got the news that she had committed suicide over Christmas break. But, as he stood in the living room of the girl's grieving parents, he realized the girl in the photo on their mantelpiece - the one who had committed suicide - was not his girlfriend. Later, he discovered the true identity of the girl he had loved - and of the things she may have done to escape her past.

Now, twenty years later, she's back, and she's telling George that he's the only one who can help her.
