A fast-paced suspense mystery, The One You Love has topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic, and has been downloaded over three million times since being released in 2011.

PRAISE FOR PAUL PILKINGTON:
"It's rare to find a thriller writer who can simultaneously propel us readers forward at a breakneck pace and yet engage our minds as we unravel puzzles brilliantly seeded through the story. Pilkington does just this. The One You Love will captivate you and keep you up nights."
Jeffery Deaver, bestselling author of the Lincoln Rhyme novels.

I read this whole book in a day and a half. It was interesting. Throughout the whole book. I found myself trying to figure out the mystery when I wasn't even reading the book. I really want there to be a sequel. :)

The book is 656 pages of mystery and although at times I was confused and annoyed I kept reading because I wanted to know what was happening. The entire time I was reading it, in my head I was trying to figure out "who done it" and the author did a good job of keeping (for a while at least) me confused. I would say this was a good book but the ending made me mad. Being that I love romance novels I wanted the ending to be different but this wasn't a romance so I didn't get the typical ending.

For those who love a mystery, you will really love this book. It kept me guessing from the beginning. Just as I think I have it figured out, the plot takes a twist and I am guessing again. The main charachters are people you can picture in your mind as you are reading. You will sympathize with Emma and everything she has gone through, and coming from a dysfunctional family myself makes it seem real. I will definitely read other books by Paul Pilkington again.

.....to keep a soap opera enthusiast interested. I wasnt sure id like it not really romance genre as title hinted but it held its own. IMHO the characters lacked depth but too much insight into them wouldve spoiled the "whodoneit" factor. At first i was annoyed with the Brit terminology but it wasnt overly done i learned some new slang from across the pond. It was an easy read and nice break from my standard genre choices. I may pick up another of this authors books if not too $$$.

The action started from the very beginning with Emma's fiancé, Dan's disappearance: and the near death of Dan's brother, Richard. Every time I thought I knew who dunnit, the author threw in a twist to make me believe it was someone else. As other reviews have stated, character development was slow or non existent.
It was not well written. Dialog was boring and slow. The grammar was horrific, for example: Will was sat on the apartment steps, or Emma was stood at the window. These are just a couple of numerous past tense in place of present tense errors.
Overall I did enjoy reading the book. The story line was a good concept. And any suspense that I have to wait for the final pages before I'm sure who the culprit is, is a winner to me.

There are so many characters & possible suspects that it's hard to follow. I almost dumped this numerous times but I was so far into it I wanted to find out who the bad guy was. Lousy ending, sort of. Hooks you into buying the next book.
With so many other free books out there, skip this one.

The book started out a little all over the place for me just due to characters views that weren't introduced until later in the book but their views given early in the book. But the ending made the book soooo worth it. The twists and figuring out who could have done it...great.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
