When Rose and Jonathan meet online, we get a front seat insight into their burgeoning romance, complete with text bubbles and plenty of racy moments. There’s one main issue…Jonathon is a married man, what could go wrong? You’ll be surprised…
Dead by Text provides a perfect balance of historical backstory, rich character development, snippets of sauciness, and boatloads of edge-of-your-seat thrill. You’ll find yourself thinking hard about the modern mode of communication, how we find love, and what happens when love becomes muddied by jealousy, possessiveness, deception, and red-hot emotion.
There is something eerily familiar about ‘Dead by Text’ for many of us as it perfectly captured the modern way of communicating and finding love (or obsession?) at a screen of your mobile phone.
The timeless themes of infatuation, paranoia, obsession, infidelity, and sexual desire are perfectly entwined throughout an ultra-modern format, complete with text messaging, virtual flirting, and a city setting.
An excellent insight into potential dangers of unhinged obsession, sneaky affairs, and how text communication allows secrets, lies, and infidelity to fester.
We can all recognize parts of ourselves in Natasha’s characters, whether we want to or not… the mark of a true writer and an outstanding book.
