The Soulmate

By: Sally Hepworth

Thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC of the book!

Gabe and Pippa’s home sits on a cliff. They’ve told their girls never to go near the cliff without an adult. Unfortunately, this cliff is where people go to end their lives. Gabe has been able to talk many people off the cliff and save them. One night, there is a woman on the cliff. Gabe instructs Pippa to call the police as Gabe goes out to talk to her, like he’s done with so many others. Only this time, Gabe isn’t able to save her. It is discovered that Gabe knew the victim and it leaves Pippa wondering if the woman really jumped, or was she pushed. As secrets are learned and revealed, Pippa begins to question whether Gabe would really lie to her.

This book wasn’t bad, but it also wasn’t great. For me, it was just kind of blah. This was my first book by this author, and she’s talked up so much so I had high expectations. While it is an easy, fast paced read, I wasn’t thrilled by this book and it didn’t keep me on the edge of my seat. I did enjoy the varying POVs for the book – mainly, I liked reading the dead girl’s point of view after she died. I felt like that was a nice touch and something that I haven’t read before. I also did not see the twist coming at the end between Max (the dead girl’s husband) and Gabe. Overall, it is a decent read that I would recommend it.
