Apologies for how late in the day this is, but massive thank you to EdPr for the blog tour invite and ARC of Teresa Driscoll’s ‘I Will Make You Pay’. Here is my review:
What does TWG think?
Goodness me – what a shocker!! I stayed up until 1.47am (to be precise) to finish reading this book. At first I was a bit ‘uhhhhhh another typical psychological thriller’, however once I got into the story, I soon realised that ‘I Will Make You Pay’ wasn’t typical at all. In fact, I was gobsmacked by how evil people could be! To some, Alice may come across as a bit of a doormat, to me I thought that she was just rather unlucky. She wanted to see the best in people and refused to see how conniving some people could actually be. A little naive, perhaps, espcially given the fact that she was a journalist, but she didn’t exactly ask to be treated like dirt by people. I mean, why would anyone do that?
I loved how devious and addictive the storyline was, with dark events and shocking characters making the storyline even more disturbing than I originally anticipated.
Of course I felt sorry for Alice – her life was in turmoil and her mother was terminally ill. The fact that a human would use that against another human is sickening. It did make for a bloody good read though!!
‘I Will Make You Pay’ has revenge at the core of its storyline, as well as multiple shocking undertones. Teresa Driscoll wrote the story in such a way, it felt as though it was happening in real life. The devastation that Alice felt was so powerful, I couldn’t help but be moved by what she had endured in such a short space of time.
If you’re after a shocking, multi layered and devious read, I cannot recommend this enough. A cracking read!
‘I Will Make You Pay’ by Teresa Driscoll is out now, published by Thomas & Mercer, priced £8.99 in paperback original
