The Soulmate

Such a good read! Four stars for me. Hepworth is a wonderful story teller and the narration on the audio books are great. Released April 2023.

*I received a free copy of this novel from NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for my honest review.*

Sally Hepworth is always a favorite of mine so I was excited to get approval to read The Soulmate. Gabe and Pippa are raising their 2 daughters in a newly purchased house that backs up to deadly cliffs. Cliffs that are a favorite spot for people to commit suicide. Gabe has been taking it upon himself to talk people and try to save them. Then one night, he doesn't save a woman. Pippa doesn't trust herself when it appears that Gabe may have pushed the woman off the edge and she is someone he knew before they moved.

As the story unfurls, we learn how Gabe and Pippa met and dated and fell in love and have the perfect marriage in her eyes. They are soulmates after all. But things are never really as they seem.

I enjoy the way that Hepworth shares her stories - in dueling time periods, different points of view, doling out just enough information in each chapter to keep you wanting to read the next. The books are fantastically paced and just make me want to keep going through the story. The twists in this one - I did not see them coming! Highly recommend.
