The author certainly knows how to ramp up the sense of drama and at times I genuinely feared what was going to happen next to one particular character. The story trundles along at a gentle pace but it gathers momentum in the second half of the book leading to a dramatic conclusion and a shock twist. The characters are believable and authentic in that you can go to any small village and find similar individuals as those found in this book.
I think that Rachel finds herself in the midst of a close knit community, where you tell somebody something and by nightfall the whole community knows.
At first I think that Rachel finds this hard to deal with. As the story continues it becomes obvious that each and every villager is hiding a secret. Overall I did enjoy reading this book and I would recommend it to others.

What started out as a promising, twisted plot became a confused mix of poorly connected storylines with too many characters. The writing style is faux Daphne du Maurier but doesn't quite match the same degree of control du Maurier had over language. If Griffiths had stripped back the unnecessary overuse of adjectives this would have read much better. In what realm can you describe a sheep as having wool like "lanolin-laced jelly"!? It doesn't make sense and, sadly, most of the book is What started out as a promising, twisted plot became a confused mix of poorly connected storylines with too many characters.
It doesn't make sense and, sadly, most of the book is written in this manner. I didn't get chills from the 'dark atmosphere' being projected; I simply rolled my eyes at the forced metaphors and not-so-subtle foreshadowing. The plot is very clumsy and all over the place for most of the book.

There are several storylines that are only partially drawn together at the end. There was also a lot of repetition of basic plot details - it read like the author was trying to sprinkle bread crumbs the size of bricks! Overall, a very disappointing book. With tighter editing this could have been a standout read. Jan 10, Amanda rated it really liked it. A beautifully written book, starts slow but builds up and draws you in with its strong characters and surprising ending!!
Nov 01, Louise Beech rated it it was amazing. Such a beautifully written novel. Despite being a psychological thriller this one never races towards its shocking climax, but slowly and teasingly takes you there - the best way. So when the end came, I was speechless. This is how you do those so-called 'huge twists that knock you out of your seat and are announced on every cover but don't always happen.
Never saw it coming, and had the most glorious ride until it did.
With thanks to Rebecca Griffiths and Sphere, I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review Somebody's watching her. And they know she's alone When Sarah D'Villez was nineteen, she was kidnapped and held hostage for eleven days but famously escaped her abductor.
The case became infamous with Sarah's face splashed across the front of every newspaper in the country. Fearful of the media storm that is sure to follow, Sarah or Rachel as she's now known as decides to disappear to rural Wales under a new identity, telling nobody where she's gone. Settling into the small community she is now part of, Sarah soon realises that someone is watching her and this someone seems to know everything about her I really, really enjoyed The Primrose Path and even though it started off well with a shocking first few pages but for me it slowed down for a little but this didn't withdraw my attention and I was gripped throughout and as I'm writing this review I think that this was Rebecca's plan to keep the reader on their toes.
There is quite a lot going on in this book with the plot lines all coming together as the story proceeds a bit like the way the layers are peeled away on an onion with secrets, lies and the twist that I didn't see coming. The characters were well written and I didn't know who to trust either as I was reading it, some of them were creepy in their own way. The descriptions of the countryside of Wales was spot on, seeing as I spent a bit of time in Wales as a kid I could feel that I was there at times looking out on the surrounding landscape.
I am looking forward to reading the next novel from Rebecca but no pressure. Jan 30, Susie Price rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. Dark, disturbing and utterly brilliant this book is fast paced, flows beautifully and was one that I did not want to put down. Rebecca Griffiths is a very talented author, her writing style is exceptional! She had brought her characters to life so well, especially the despicable Idris Tudor. A vile evil man who I could picture in my head, could see him, practically smell him.
The same goes for the setting, beautiful rural Wales, Rebecca writes with such vivid imagery setting the scene perfectly, the book is so atmospheric that I could visualise it all in my head. I find a lot of books are lacking in that so it was really refreshing to read a book that I could get so fully involved with. The primrose path has some fantastic characters and there's lots of different aspects of the story, there are a lot of twists and turns which I loved!! The end of the book came as a complete shocker to me, I did not see that coming!!
So cleverly written, a fantastic creepy plot that doesn't so much keep you guessing until the end, more that it smacks you in the face at the end! I would wholeheartedly recommend this book, it's one I will definitely be reading again, and I hope that there's many more to come by this very talented author.

Seventeen years later she is divorced from her husband and her only daughter is living with him in America. When Sarah finds out her kidnapper is about to be released from prison she runs away to Wales and changes her name to Rachel.

In Wales Ra Listened to in audio format. In Wales Rachel moves into a lovely cottage and is friends with a couple of her neighbours.
The only downside is Idris whose family used to own her cottage, he is a bit unwashed and sleezy. He is attracted to Rachel and finds ways to visit her, he also steals her knickers from her washing line. I think this is the best audio book I have listened to so far in This opening chapter was very dark but then the story slowed but never got boring.
This book had red herrings galore, I thought I knew the killer then changed my mind again. Highly recommended. View all 3 comments. Jan 21, Rebecca Stonehill rated it it was amazing. I don't read a huge amount of psychological thrillers, but I was extremely impressed by this one. Rebecca Griffiths cunningly leads the reader in a certain direction before the realisation hits you that everything you thought the novel was actually about is actually something completely different!
I was stunned, not only with the plot's twists and turns but also the author's ingenuity and very clever writing. Something else I loved about this book was the way the Welsh countryside is depict I don't read a huge amount of psychological thrillers, but I was extremely impressed by this one.

Something else I loved about this book was the way the Welsh countryside is depicted - Griffiths is skilled at bringing the magic of rural areas alive. As the story unfolded, it drew me in more and more until I could actually not put the book down! Truly riveting and highly recommended. Apr 27, Sara Edwards rated it it was amazing. This is a fantastic debut novel. It's an intriguing tale with so many twists and turns - I really didn't see them coming!
