The Therapist – A Book Review

By Sue Baldani

As with her previous books, B.A. Paris’s latest novel, “The Therapist”, does not disappoint. Released in July of 2021, it’s full of the intrigue and mystery for which she is famous. Her latest tale will keep readers in suspense from beginning to end.

Alice Dawson has just left her life-long home in the country to move into a newly renovated house in London with her boyfriend Leo. Although the home is spacious, beautiful, and bright, something about it gives her an uneasy feeling. At first, she blames it on living in a strange place, but as time goes by, she begins to realize there’s something more to it. And, the neighbors in her exclusive gated community of The Circle, although friendly enough, seem to be hiding something.

With a tragic past of her own, and no family to speak of, Alice is desperate to make friends, especially with Leo being away so often on business. But, when she learns of the horrific history of the house and the fate of Nina, the female therapist who used to live there, she quickly realizes that everyone in The Circle, including the man she loves, has been keeping secrets from her.

At first, she feels betrayed and angry, but as she starts to uncover more and more of the buried secrets of the people around her, including Leo’s, she doesn’t know whom she can trust. When she discovers that someone has been entering the house at night and leaving unusual and sometimes frightening gifts behind, and with what she now knows happened in the house two years prior, she begins to fear for her life. As she makes plans to leave The Circle and Leo and return home, little does she know that someone intends to stop her – for good. And it might be the person she least suspects.

Filled with twists and turns in every chapter, with interesting characters who keep readers guessing, “The Therapist” makes it hard to pin down who is friend, foe, or even a killer. When the truth finally comes out, it’s even more shocking than imagined.

B.A. Paris is the internationally best-selling author of five previous novels, including “Behind Closed Doors” and “The Breakdown.” She lives in the UK with her husband and is hopefully busy writing her next unforgettable story.

Written for The Felixstowe Magazine published in Felixstowe in Suffolk, England.
