A house with the darkest of secrets.
A woman who is the only one who knows.
It’s another bright, sunny day in Venture, Illinois, the sort of place where dreams come true and families can get a fresh start. Cecelia Holmes deserves it after the home invasion that shattered her previous life. Now everything seems perfect – her high-security SmartHome, her doting husband, her sweet daughter.
Until she begins to feel spied on. Her husband doesn’t believe her. Her neighbors ignore her. So when she discovers a shocking secret about the prior occupant of their house, she feels that she has no one to turn to. And now Cecelia must face her fears alone…
Brisk, intense, and clever!
A Woman Alone is a suspenseful, psychological thriller that introduces us to Cecelia Holmes, a young wife who after suffering a traumatic experience moves with her husband and three-year-old daughter into a new home in Venture, Illinois, a smart community where your every whim and need is controlled by AI technology and your safety and security is at utmost importance until the day the computers begin to malfunction, secrets begin creeping out of the woodwork, and danger lurks around every corner.
The writing is crisp and edgy. The characters are unreliable, distressed, and secretive. And the plot is a disturbingly eerie tale of control, betrayal, obsession, deception, familial drama, isolation, revenge, violence, and murder.
Overall, A Woman Alone is a twisty, creepy, sinister page-turner that keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish and is a wonderful reminder of just how vulnerable and susceptible our dependence on technology truly makes us.
