The Strangers We Know Kindle Edition
When Charlie sees a man who is the spitting image of her husband Oliver on a dating app, her heart stops. Her first desperate instinct is to tell herself she must be mistaken – after all, she only caught a glimpse from a distance as her friends laughingly swiped through the men on offer. But no matter how much she tries to push her fears aside, she can’t let it go. Because she took that photo. On their honeymoon.
Suddenly other signs of betrayal start to add up and so Charlie does the only thing she can think of to defend her position – she signs 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 ...

Charlie signs up to the dating app, under a false name, and when she gets a message from Oliver she is shocked to the core by what she reads.
When everything seems lost and Charlie doesn’t know who to turn to she seeks out new friend, Brooke, who she met at her yoga class. She hasn’t been that honest with Brooke but Brooke has secrets of her own.
Even though some of the twists were predictable this didn’t take anything away from this tension-filled and well plotted mystery.
Narrated in the first person by Charlie, she is a relatable character and I could understand her trust issues and paranoia. The chapters are told in episodes, like a TV series which is fitting as Charlie is a low grade actress. She views life as if it were a movie script. The good guy should always win in the end. Shouldn’t he?
The Strangers We Know is twisty and tension filled, with a plot that is sure to hold your attention, making this a book that is impossible to put down.
I received a copy through Better Reading
And so begins a fast-paced convoluted journey as Charlie, having confronted Oliver and not accepted his denial, leaves him and tries to do her own detective work. But who, and what can she trust?
‘You see, that’s the problem with trust issues: eventually you find you can’t trust yourself either.’
I became frustrated by Charlie and some of her actions. But I’m not going to spoil the story for you: there are a few twists in this story, and I didn’t spot them all until very close to the end. While I found elements of the story less credible, anything is possible in our technologically enabled and highly connected world.
‘Did I make all the wrong choices?’
Note: My thanks to Better Reading and Simon & Schuster for a copy of this novel.
Charlie Buchanan is happily married to her financial invested husband Oliver
While out celebrating her bestie, Tessa’s birthday, the two casually swipe through a Dating App searching for Tessa’s next fix (conquest) when Charlie reluctantly notices a man who resembles her husband.
That one twist of fate, sets in motion a rollicking ride of betrayal and deception where nobody is how you think.
Charlie’s spidey sense go into over drive as she begins to find clues and uncover evidence that point to the possibility that - Yes, her husband may be seeing other women behind her back.

You’ll cheer for her.
You’ll want to pull your hair out and scream at her.
You won’t be disappointed in the ride your in for with this story.
