Hush, Hush

Hush, Hush

As this is likely to be my last review before Christmas, I thought I’d look at something relatively festive – angels. Well, fallen angels but it’s close enough.

Hush, Hush was first published in 2009 and was the debut novel of Becca Fitzpatrick. It is a paranormal romance story about a teenage girl who finds herself drawn to a mysterious and threatening new student in her class. The novel is the first of a series of four books and is followed by Crescendo (2010), Silence (2011) and Finale (2012), but for the purpose of today’s review I’ll be looking at the first book only.

Ever since her father was murdered, Nora Grey has had trouble letting other people into her life. Although she hangs around a lot with her bubbly best friend, Vee, she had no interest in finding romance. This is until her biology teacher devises a brand new seating plan half way through the semester and she finds herself sitting next to Patch.

Although Patch is incredibly handsome, there is also something very sinister about him. He seems to know far too much about Nora’s personal life and, although she is strangely attracted to him, he also frightens her to her core.

Around the same time, Nora begins to see disturbing things. An unseen stranger watches her while she’s sleeping and then a man in a ski mask attacks her one night as she drives home. As Patch begins to show up wherever she goes and reveals that he knows very personal things about her, Nora realises that she needs to learn more about him. Is he a stalker, or does he have some even more sinister motivation for harassing her?
