I bought The Visitor by K.L. Slater on sale for barely 1 euro as an ebook and I finished it quickly. The story plot was interesting and suspenseful, unraveling gradually. The protagonist is a young woman Holly, who clearly went through some difficult times in her life. With empty pockets and bunch of unpaid bills, she finds a shelter at Cora’s house. Cora is an elderly lady whom she has met by chance, or so it seemed at the time. She has offered her help and all she wanted in exchange was company, someone to talk to.
Thanks to the older woman’s generosity, Holy is able to make a fresh start in life; she quickly finds a job. As much as she tries to stop her memories of the past however, they keep invading her consciousness and leaving her restless. She also knows she has to find Edward, a person who is very dear to her and whom she is desperate to find.
She discovers that Cora is hiding something, something that could help Holy in her search. There are more secrets emerging, as Holy befriends one of the neighbours, David. He is a forty year old man, still living with his mother and terrified of leaving the house, unless it is a scheduled journey to and from his work. It turns out that he is a parking assistant at the place where she now works. She suspects that something has happened in the past that involved David. Nobody is willing to share it with her but she is told by Cora’s gardener to keep an eye on David.
Holy feels watched. She is wondering if it is in fact David, or her new nemesis from work Emily, a top sales assistant, who is now out of work and holding a grudge against Holly. Perhaps a dept collector has found her new address.. Could it be one of the dark characters from her past, or is she getting paranoid while nobody is watching her?
Overall a good page turner. 3 pink roses, glass vases or letters.
