Review: The Influencer by Miranda Rijks
The Influencer by Miranda Rijks
4.5 of 5 stars
Adored by her legions of followers, social media megastar Skye is an inspiration. Once homeless, she is now fantastically wealthy, enormously powerful. A ‘like’ from Skye can literally change your life.
So when she suggests partnering with Nathan’s charity for the homeless, he thinks it’s a match made in heaven. With Skye’s backing, who knows what he can achieve? And no-one is more excited than Nathan’s teenage daughters, both massive fans of the star.
But Skye’s influence comes at a price. Yes, funds are pouring into Nathan’s charity, but she is a smothering presence, seemingly determined to insert herself into every nook and cranny of his family life.
Nathan’s daughters are thrilled to have so much up close and personal contact with a superstar. But he worries about Skye’s growing influence on them… And is it just a coincidence that ever since she’s been around, his personal life is disintegrating?
As things spiral out of control, Nathan begins to wonder what Skye really wants from him and his daughters. The answer is more terrifying than he could ever imagine…
The Influencer – the stunning psychological thriller from Miranda Rijks, author of The Visitors, The Arrangement, and Roses are Red.
Such a good, sharp story that, along with building a tight story line, illuminates the world of influencers, of which I do have some knowledge, but it was still nice to see it laid out with such dry humor. This is the first book I’ve read by Miranda Rijks – she really writes well, and I’ll definitely be picking up more of her books.
This book had all the things I look for and love – a crisp story line, well written dialogues, and fleshed out characters, though I would have liked to see more of Marie.
