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.
Amazing 1st thriller novel
I read this book in 12 hrs. There’s so much suspense, mixed with steamy scenes. This is like the perfect genre for me and very rare to come by! The themes reminded me very much of The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. I would give it 5 stars but I feel like the climax could have been drawn out more. I feel like once the climax hit, it was immediately over and then we went straight into plot twists. Without giving away spoilers, I would have loved to see more of a physical struggle with more dialogue included before the crescendo. But over all great read!
This book had me on the edge of my seat constantly! I never knew what to expect next and I never wanted to put the book down! The ending was very unexpected. Though the last chapter was kind of boring, I still really liked how it ended.
Nope…a total miss.
I have read every single book Colleen Hoover has written…and loved them all. This book was not good. The ending was lame. A total miss.
