Review: Keeper of the Light by Diane Chamberlain #bookreview #bookblog @DianeChamberlain


Dr. Olivia Simon is on duty in the emergency room of North Carolina’s Outer Banks Hospital when a gunshot victim is brought in. Midway through the desperate effort to save the young woman’s life, Olivia realizes who she is—Annie O’Neill. The woman Olivia’s husband, Paul, is in love with. 

When Annie dies on the operating table, she leaves behind three other victims. Alec O’Neill, who thought he had the perfect marriage. Paul, whose fixation on Annie is unshakable. And Olivia, who is desperate to understand the woman who destroyed her marriage. 

Now they are left with unanswered questions about who Annie really was. And about the secrets she kept hidden so well.

My Thoughts

Could I love this authors books anymore? Phenomenal story. What I loved about it was that it’s a personally touchy topic for me. I have a pretty strong stance on infidelity and usually that skews my opinion on the story. However, I was so enthralled in the drama and lives, it just meshed with everything.

After the first chapter, you could see that the author was setting the affair scenario up. I was wondering how it was going to get any better. But boy were there some good twists. Wasn’t Paul a complete douche bag. I felt no sympathy or compassion for him at all. A complete snake really. Annie’s character was interesting in that we didn’t even get to actually meet her, but we learned that she’s got a lot more going on than people realise. Alec’s Daughter I had a soft spot on, and I liked how she developed. And old Mary? Well, I was a bit shocked by what she did for Annie.

It was an excellent read, I enjoyed the ease of flow, development and backstories we were given, and the ending wrapped it up nicely.

I rate Keeper of the Light: 5/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Happy Reading

Avid reader and 'collector' of books. I'm a prison psychologist and criminologist, so no surprise when I admit I have a particular like in true crime and psychological/police procedure thrillers and suspense books.
