The Strangers We Know by Pip Drysdale. (2019).

**4 out of 5 stars**

Charlie’s heart stops when she sees on a dating app a man who is the spitting image of her husband Oliver. Surely she must be mistaken, she only got a glimpse…but she can’t let it go because she’s the one who took that particular photo, on their honeymoon. Suddenly other signs of betrayal start to add up and so Charlie decides to sign up to the app to catch Oliver in the act. But Charlie soon discovers that infidelity is the least of her problems. Nothing is as it seems and nobody is who she thinks they are…

This is a seriously enjoyable and entertaining read. I finished it over about three and a half hours because it was super easy to read and also very engaging. It seems pretty damn obvious that Oliver is cheating on Charlie but at the same time there is all these hints that something else is going on and so it leaves you wondering what the explanation could possibly be…
Charlie herself is a great lead; she is likeable and you definitely feel for her – at the same time she clearly suffers from anxiety about her relationship which leads to some impulse decisions that while read a bit questionable, are probably quite realistic haha.
This is a fast-paced thriller that no doubt will have you racing though the pages just so you can finally find out what exactly is going on. Fans of psychological thrillers and suspense novels will find this book a real treat!
