A "sublimely creepy" psychological thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover (Tarryn Fisher, New York Times bestselling author).
Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to finish.
Lowen arrives at the Crawford home, ready to sort through years of Verity’s notes and outlines, hoping to find enough material to get her started. What Lowen doesn’t expect to uncover in the chaotic office is an unfinished autobiography Verity never intended for anyone to read. Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity's recollection of the night her family was forever altered.
Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents could devastate the already grieving father. But as Lowen’s feelings for Jeremy begin to intensify, she recognizes all the ways she could benefit if he were to read his wife’s words. After all, no matter how devoted Jeremy is to his injured wife, a truth this horrifying would make it impossible for him to continue loving her.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Known for her emotional romances, Colleen Hoover comes out swinging with her first psychological thriller. Struggling novelist Lowen Ashleigh is about to give up on writing altogether when she’s offered an opportunity to ghostwrite a book for best-selling mystery author Verity Crawford, who’s been injured in a car crash. But from the moment Lowen moves into the Crawford house to collect Verity’s notes, things seem off…and Verity’s husband is particularly suspicious. Hoover fills Lowen’s journey with tension and dread, especially when she discovers a disturbing autobiography that Verity never intended for anyone to read. You may want to steady yourself as Lowen inches perilously closer to the truth about her assignment—and remind yourself to breathe.
Great story, needs a warning
This is really a page turner and kept me intrigued, however I really think there needs to be more warning for some of the disturbing scenes. This is not a book for everyone. But if you start it, you absolutely need to finish it to make it worth going through the harder moments
Lordy, that was a ride! I couldn’t put the book down - seriously, I never pay more than 2.99 for a book but this was worth the money. After reading the sample I purchased this book and had no regrets as the nonstop suspense continued until the very last page! Great read!!
Finished this book in 5 hours, did not put it down once. I feel like I’m in a daze. I find it incredible how on edge this book made me feel, normally I love a hint of a potential romance in a thriller but this book had me scared of one
