Well this was an intriguing little book, told through two narrators, Louise and Adele. I thought initially it was going to be another tale of a wronged wife/lover, but it's so much more than that. It not only switches narrators, it also jumps between the past and present, adding a sense of disquiet and mystery from the beginning.

The initial meeting between Louise and David promises so much, but the ensuing revelation that David is her boss, is enough to send anyone into a state of apoplexy. The subsequent meeting with his wife Adele is odd and really quite uncomfortable. And this sense of things being slightly off, continues throughout the story. Adele might be beautiful, but I couldn't help thinking she was slightly deranged and more than a little bit creepy. I wasn't ever completely sure what was going on with her, though it definitely seemed more than just a woman wronged. I should say though that it is easy to see how Louise gets sucked into whatever game she was playing.

Louise is in turn a likeable character who I was rooting for; her and her son Adam. I know it was wrong to want David to be her knight in shining armour, but I couldn't help but feel that she was deserving on some happiness. And I'm not going to spoil it by giving more away, but it's certainly a step away from the norm.

I thoroughly enjoyed Behind Her Eyes, and I'm sure you will too. A great story, laced with promise, tension and surprise.
