REVIEWS

Don't Close Your Eyes is a fabulous psychological feast of secrets and lies within two families. Thought-provoking, clever, twisty and totally compelling. Bravo!Sam Carrington

Fascinating thriller ... too good to miss!
Sun on Sunday Fabulous Magazine on DON'T CLOSE YOUR EYES

Bloody hell. This is SO good... Phrases like 'heart-pounding' and 'jaw-dropping' are so overused but that's exactly what happened to me and then I couldn't get to sleep because I was so hyped up... She's a clever one, that Holly.Deborah O' Connor on DON'T CLOSE YOUR EYES

I loved Don't Close Your Eyes. It's a really sensitive and gripping exploration of childhood issues looming large into adulthood, with a corker of a denouement. I loved it.
