Bookish Bites: The Doll House by Phoebe Morgan

You never know who’s watching…
Corinne’s life might look perfect on the outside, but after three failed IVF attempts it’s her last chance to have a baby. And when she finds a tiny part of a doll house outside her flat, it feels as if it’s a sign.
But as more pieces begin to turn up, Corinne realises that they are far too familiar. Someone knows about the miniature rocking horse and the little doll with its red velvet dress. Someone has been inside her house…
How does the stranger know so much about her life? How long have they been watching? And what are they waiting for…?

Loved the chilling nature of the crime, it was so emotionally manipulative and extremely clever. I liked how both Corinne and Ashley had their own stories that were different but also parallel.

Disliked … nothing? I thought this was a gripping, unusual psychological thriller!

Favourite moment? Probably the scene in the graveyard! I wasn’t sure how exactly it was going to turn out, and there were some chilling details and a great twist that all came to light. The ending was also unexpected and left me wanting more!

Favourite character was Corinne, as I felt her psychological state was written so well, and I was more invested in her, but I actually really liked all of them. I also loved that there were chapters from different perspectives as it offered a wider range of emotions and plots.

Final comments: This was a chilling, unusual and fast-paced story, with chapters from an unknown person that provided a truly unnerving atmosphere throughout.
