Huge thanks to Orenda Books for inviting me on the tour for this fascinating sounding book. The idea was that I would the review the book on the tour today, however due to personal circumstances in my family, I’ve been unable to read and review on time. I have read the first 20% and I absolutely love it, so I will be back to do a full review for you asap.
In the meantime, read all about the book, and make a note to add it to your TBR.The Closer I Get by Paul Burston

A compulsive, disturbingly relevant, twisty and powerful psychological, social-media thriller from the bestselling author of The Black Path
’An intense, tightly calibrated thriller’ Huffington Post
Tom is a successful author, but he’s struggling to finish his novel. His main distraction is an online admirer, Evie, who simply won’t leave him alone.
Evie is smart, well read and unstable; she lives with her father and her social-media friendships are not only her escape, but everything she has.
When she’s hit with a restraining order, her world is turned upside down, and Tom is free to live his life again, to concentrate on writing.
But things aren’t really adding up. For Tom is distracted but also addicted to his online relationships, and when they take a darker, more menacing turn, he feels powerless to change things. Because maybe he needs Evie more than he’s letting on.
A compulsive, disturbingly relevant, twisty and powerful psychological thriller, The Closer I Get is also a searing commentary on the fragility and insincerity of online relationships, and the danger that can lurk just one ‘like’ away…
Doesn’t it sound chilling? And is there anything more annoying than not being able to read when the book you’ve started is so promising?
