Shame on You/Amy Heydenrych - Book Review

Shame on You book cover.

You think you know her...

Meet Holly.

Social media sensation. The face of clean eating.

Everyone loves her. Everyone wants to be her.
Or do they?

When Holly is attacked by a man she's only just met, her life starts to spiral out of control.

Was she targeted because of her online wellness empire, or is there a darker reason behind the attack? He seemed to know her - but she doesn't know him.

Or does she?

What if Holly isn't who she seems to be? What if Holly's living a lie?

But surely we all lie a bit online, don't we...?


I really enjoy finding new authors, so when I spotted this on Net Galley I thought I would give it a go. I'm glad I did, even though the novel is a thriller, for me I found it a bit more 'easy reading' than some thrillers ( I hope that makes sense). 

Holly is an Instagram star, she has 'made it' in the world of social media. But she has a secret, a secret that someone knows and wants to punish her for. Holly has a slightly different real life to what she portrays online.

It took me a little while to get into this novel, but once I did I really enjoyed it. Lots of twists and turns, as you would expect from this genre. I really enjoyed Amy Heydenrych's style of writing.
The story is told from both Holly and Tyler's perspectives, which I enjoyed as I really got a feel for what each character was thinking and going through. 

I would definitely recommend this novel to fans of thriller/mystery. I look forward to reading more of Amy Heydenrych's work in future.

Thank you to NetGalley and Bonnier Zaffre for sending me this novel to review.

  1. I love the sound of this, particularly the “Instagram famous / clean eating” element which is so topical right now! What an interesting premise for a Thriller novel.
