Review - Faces of Beth by Carver Pike

Synopsis -

When Andrew meets Beth at the Myles-Bend State Mental Hospital, he knows she has issues. She checked herself into the place because of her problems, but he can’t help falling in love with her anyway. He’s willing to put up with her constant mood swings and all the baggage she brings into the relationship. He’ll help raise her kids, give her siblings a place to stay, and even look after her creepy grandfather. After all, he has the space in the huge house left to him by his parents.

Marriage has its hardships, Andrew knows that, but there seems to be something else wrong with Beth. A dark entity grows inside her and he can’t help wondering if she might be possessed. Andrew can look past all the other drama in their new life, but the thing inside her that seems to want him dead – that’s kind of a deal breaker.

Review -

Yes, I am well aware that we are still just in January, but Faces of Beth by Carver Pike is already an early contender for my favorite read of the year. Given how much I've enjoyed his previous work, this really doesn't come as much of a surprise.

This is a story that has you thinking one thing at the start, only to take a turn that is deliciously evil. To go too deep into that would be to spoil the revelations and twists that come along the way.

What I can say is that the scenes set inside the mental hospital are about as creepy as it gets. I for one would love to read the backstory of Old Lynne, as she is arguably the creepiest character in the book, even more so than Father Dennis.

This is an author at the top of his game and I suggest you all give this one a read. You can pick up your copy by clicking HERE.
