The Old You by Louise Voss #Blogtour #Review


Nail-bitingly modern domestic noir

A tense, Hitchcockian psychological thriller

Louise Voss returns with her darkest, most chilling, novel yet…

Lynn Naismith gave up the job she loved when she married Ed, the love of her life, but it was worth it for the happy years they enjoyed together. Now, ten years on, Ed has been diagnosed with early-onset dementia, and things start to happen; things more sinister than missing keys and lost words. As some memories are forgotten, others, long buried, begin to surface … and Lynn’s perfect world begins to crumble.

But is it Ed’s mind playing tricks, or hers…?

My Review

I’d like to thank Anne Cater, Louise Voss and Orenda books for including me in this fab blogtour.

The Old You is a modern, nail biting thrill of a read. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

This is the first book I’ve read by Louise and I’ve very quickly added her other books to my TBR pile.

The Old You is like peeling an onion and finding an orange, then peeling further and finding a lemon! It starts as a very candid story of someone with early stages of picks which is a form of dementia. Or so you think! The story takes a gradual chilling turn. I literally could not put this book down.

The characters were very believable and down to earth, and the story is so clever that i can guarantee it will have you thinking about it long after you’ve finished it.

The climax to the story had me on the edge of my seat and my heart racing.

Thank you Louise and Orenda books for an absolute gem of a book.

A 5* plus review from me!
