Review: Follow You Home by Mark Edwards

Author: Mark Edwards
Publisher: Thomas & Mercer
Date of publication: June 2015

It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime, a final adventure before settling down.

After a perfect start, Daniel and Laura’s travels end abruptly when they are thrown off a night train in the middle of nowhere. To find their way back to civilization, they must hike along the tracks through a forest…a haunting journey that ends in unimaginable terror.

Back in London, Daniel and Laura vow never to talk about what they saw that night. But as they try to fit back into their old lives, it becomes clear that their nightmare is just beginning…

In Follow You  Home, British couple, Danial and Laura, are on vacation in Romania when they are kicked off of a train after their passports and tickets are stolen.  The end up at a creepy house in the woods.  After fleeing and going back to England, they end up agreeing to never speak about what they saw.  Even though it is tearing their relationship apart.

I have  mixed feelings about this book.  I did end up ultimately enjoying the book.  There were a lot of twists that kept me on my toes.  I didn't really see any of them coming, especially the last reveal.  That one was shocking. However, I did think the book dragged in a few places.  What Danial and Laura actually saw in the house was kind of anti-climactic.  I mean it was horrific, however, I thought Laura's reaction to the events was a bit over the top.  I mean if she was that bothered, then she should have said something once they got to safety. 

I don't want to give away the plot too much.  It is told through multiple perspectives.  But it was easy to follow.  I would say this is one of the more enjoyable psychological thrillers that I read this year.  I do recommend it.
