Everything and Nothing A gripping psychological suspense read Cupboards were sticky from spilled jam and honey, and the oven smoked when you turned it on because of the fat that had built up over the years Agatha would never, ever let her future home end up like this She would never leave it every day like Ruth did She would never put her trust in strangers Ruth and Christian are just holding their marriage together, after Christian s disastrous affair a year ago But chaos beckons, and when the family are suddenly left without any childcare, Agatha comes into their lives to solve all their problems But Agatha is not as perfect as she seems and her love for the children masks a deeper secret Everything and Nothing is a stunningly assured debut, superbly evoking an atmosphere of inexorable and sinister menace that builds to a mesmerizing climax in a story that is, at its heart, about thwarted and damaged love

    I really hope an editor was not compensated for their effort on this book Our Kind of Cruelty by Araminta Hall was among my favorite books for 2018 It was dark and disturbing with an unreliable cuckoo narrator After reading the synopsis for this earlier book by the same author, I went into it hoping to findof this author s immersive psychological storytelling and found that this effor

    The theme of this book maybe not be an original one but for me this was a cut above others that I ve read in a similar vein The story is told from the views of the three main characters Ruth, Christian Aggie yet unlike many other books it s not told in the first person I found the style tone of the writing credible I don t think there is a mother out there that won t identify with at lea
