ShortBookandScribes #BookReview – The Woman Inside by E.G. Scott @EGScottwrites @TrapezeBooks #BlogTour
I’m delighted to be reviewing The Woman Inside by E.G. Scott for the blog tour today. My thanks to Tracy Fenton for the place on the tour and to Trapeze Books for providing a review copy via Netgalley.
A page-turning thriller about secrets and revenge, told from the perspectives of a husband and wife who are the most perfect, and the most dangerous, match for each other.
Rebecca didn’t know love was possible until she met Paul, a man with a past as dark as her own. Their demons drew them together, but twenty years later, the damage and secrets that ignited their love begin to consume their marriage.
When Paul catches the attention of the police after two women go missing, Rebecca discovers his elaborate plot to build a new life without her. And though Rebecca is quickly spiralling out of control, it doesn’t stop her from coming up with her own devastating plan for revenge… they made a promise to each other, afterall.
Til death do they part.
With a Shakespearean twist that rivals the best books in the genre, THE WOMAN INSIDE is the unmissable thriller of 2019.

The Woman Inside is an intriguing psychological thriller, primarily concerned with betrayal and revenge. There are multiple narrators and most of them are unreliable.
Rebecca and Paul Campbell have been together for two decades and have a good life but as the book begins cracks are starting to show. Rebecca is addicted to pills which affects her judgement and makes her paranoid and lacking in concentration. Both of them have problem pasts, something which has always brought them together before.
The two missing women are what really start to pull them apart though, as the police start to investigate links between them and the Campbells.
I did struggle ever so slightly at the beginning of the book as I felt like I couldn’t quite get a handle on what was happening, but once I was into the swing of it I really enjoyed it and found it compelling reading to watch the couple start to fall apart.
There are lots of twists and turns, little things suddenly revealed to me as I read along. Some meant that an earlier part of the story slotted into place and others were a real surprise. And that ending? Well, let’s just say I did not expect that!
The Woman Inside is a delightfully complex and tense thriller, with difficult to like characters and tons of ups and downs.
