Sleepless, Romy Hausmann

Sleepless: the mind-bending new thriller from the bestselling author of DEAR CHILD by [Romy Hausmann]

Genre: Mystery & Thrillers

I loved Dear Child, so was eager to get into this but….while the writing is excellent the story just failed for me. I did put aside a few times, restarted and managed to finish, purely because I’d got the the point where I had to know how it played out but I really didn’t enjoy this read.
I found the tale confusing, different time lines, characters that seemed to have two very different stories. Eventually they began to join but I found the co-incidences of how characters were connected too much to believe, and I do believe a lot in random chance but this just didn’t feel right. Then there’s Laura, supposed to be Nadja’s friend according to the description but actually they’ve not spoken for a couple of years at least.
I felt for Nadja, horrific childhood, but really didn’t understand her willingness to help Laura. All of the characters were selfish to some degree, Laura and her husband very much so. Nelly was probably the most likable, poor little deluded girl, seduced by a practiced man….even she put out of her mind what her head was telling her.
I finished it, but it was a struggle, and even now I’m still confused about certain aspects, why, how, when of certain characters and events…

Stars: Two, I didn’t hate this book, I was just disappointed in the story, but as usual others adore this read. We all look for different things, this just wasn’t a fit for me.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
