‘The Face At The Window’ by Ruby Speechley

The Face At The Window: A gripping, twisty thriller you won't be able to put down by [Ruby Speechley]


They’re in your house.

They want your life.

And now, they have your baby.

To the world, I’m @HappyWife. Online, people only see my picture-perfect home, my handsome husband, Nick, and my beautiful baby, Thomas.

They don’t see the real Gemma Adams. They don’t see my past, the dark secrets I’m hiding in my marriage. They don’t see the fear I live in every single day.

But I know someone is watching me. And now, they’ve taken Thomas.

I just don’t know why.

But I’m going to stop at nothing to get my baby back.

Even if it destroys everything I’ve got to find him.

My Review

I have read and loved a couple of Ruby’s books now.  I love the way in which she writes psychological thrillers that send a bit of a shiver down your spine.  I read the synopsis for ‘The Face At The Window’ and it certainly sounded like my type of read.  So without further ado, I dived straight in.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘The Face At The Window’ but more about that in a bit.

I was drawn into this story from the moment I read the synopsis and as soon as I started to read the story itself then that was it.  I found it extremely difficult to put my Kindle to one side for any length of time.  The story intrigued me and I had my own suspicions as to what was going to happen.  I had to keep reading to see if I was on the right track or if I had wandered down the wrong path entirely.  There were a couple of characters, to whom I took an instant dislike and I had to find out what happened to them.  The pages turned at a fairly fast pace and I finished the book within the space of a day.  I found ‘The Face At The Window’ to be a gripping read, which kept me guessing and kept me on the edge of my seat throughout.

‘The Face At The Window’ is extremely well written.  Ruby has one of those easy going writing styles that is easy to get used to and easy to get along with.  She grabs your attention from fairly early on and reels you into what proves to be a compelling story.  In my opinion the story was perfectly paced.  The story was a bit of a slow burn but the plot gained momentum as the story continued before ending in a tense and dramatic conclusion.  Reading ‘The Face At The Window’ was a bit like being on a scary and unpredictable rollercoaster ride with several twists and turns along the way.

In short, I really enjoyed reading ‘The Face At The Window’ and I would recommend it to other readers.  I will certainly be reading more of Ruby’s work in the future.  The score on the Ginger Book Geek board is a very well deserved 4* out of 5*.
