Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes is a very well done psychological thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat. I listened to the audio version that is narrated by David Thorpe and Karen Cass who do an awesome job. This is a suspenseful story and their narration definitely added to my heart beating awfully fast more than once.
When Catherine meets Lee she has no idea just how much he will change her life. Lee seems to be the perfect guy at first. He’s gorgeous, he flatters her all the time, and their time together seems perfect. Unfortunately Catherine finds out soon enough that her dream guy is about as far from perfect as you can get. Lee has a different side to him. One that is possessive and violent and it’s now directed at Catherine. As things get worse she tries turning to her friends who think she’s overreacting… until the day everything changes and she knows that only she can be the one to save her life.
For Catherine her relationship with Lee changed who she was and how she lived her life completely. She now lives with severe OCD and her daily life is a struggle. She’s scared of everything and everybody. In her heart she knows that nothing will ever be better for her until a new neighbor moves in and offers her some hope. He’s handsome and kind and is determined to break through Catherine’s shell. Can she even begin to hope for a new beginning? Not likely…
Into the Darkest Corner was a great audiobook and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to those who like books that put a tinge of fear into their reading or listening.
