Are you ready to stay up all night? Rebecca meets Gone Girl in this shocking, unpredictable thriller with a twist that will leave you reeling . . .
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 their family was forever altered.
Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents would 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 . . .

Ooh, I can’t express how drawn in I was by this book. It was so immersive I have no idea where the time went. The Verity chapters were enthralling and the complexity of her character had me thinking all sorts.
This is a book that delves deep. It’s gave me the chills too. How Lowen stayed in that house was beyond me. I literally devoured the pages over two settings and I can’t recommend this book enough.
If you love psychological thrillers, this isn’t a book to be missed. It’s a master of its genre. Truly spellbinding!
Thanks for reading!
