Don’t Miss This Intense New Psychological Thriller-Bring Me Back-Coming 6/19/18!

 

Broken hearts, guilty consciences, and haunting mind-games are the ingredients that make up this psychological thriller.

Layla and Ellen came from a toxic family unit where their abusive alcoholic father had ruled. Layla was the first to leave the homestead. She escaped to London where she found Finn and fell in love. Finn loved Layla with a passion, so much so, that it scared him; especially the night that she went missing. 

Although Finn didn’t want to fall in love with Layla’s sister, Ellen, after Layla had disappeared, he did. It wasn’t the same kind of intense love, however, but it was enough. After Finn and Ellen’s engagement went public, Finn’s life began to fall apart. Someone was playing head-games with him, insinuating that after twelve years, Layla, was not only alive but trying to contact him.  

The story really begins to twist and turn after Ellen finds a Russian doll, the same doll she believes, her sister had taken from her years ago. Ellen wonders what will happen to her relationship, with Finn, if Layla suddenly makes an appearance in their lives.

Bring Me Back is a true, mind-twisting, psychological thriller. Although this novel isn’t completely believable and dragged a bit in the middle, it was still, captivating and enjoyable. I read the book in two days. This is the first work that I’ve read by this author, but it won’t be the last. 

Thank you, St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

Carol Goodman’s Newest Release-The Other Mother-Coming 3/27/18!

 

The Other Mother is an intense psychological thriller. It’s confusing and disturbing, but fascinating. Nothing in this book is what it appears to be. There are many twists and surprises throughout the novel. All the pieces, though, do come together in the end.

Daphne Marist and Laurel Hobbs met in a support group for women suffering from intrusive thoughts and postpartum psychosis/depression. The two women became fast friends, confiding in one another their deepest thoughts and fears. Laurel encouraged Daphne to sharpen her appearance. Daphne readily agreed and changed her hairstyle, clothes, accessories, and behavior, to match her new, more confident friend, Laurel Hobbs. Their intense friendship, however, crumbled. Did their husbands sabotage it, or did they break it themselves?

When Daphne’s life began to spin out of control, she split from her husband and took infant Chloe with her. Daphne headed for the Catskills where a job awaited her. She started her new life under the assumed name, Laurel Hobbs. It was there, however, where Daphne’s chaotic world turned into a never-ending nightmare. A world where layers of deceit and betrayals were exposed.

The Other Mother is a cleverly crafted thriller, where cunning characters come to life. A word of caution to the reader, Postpartum Psychosis/Depression, Intrusive Thoughts, suicide and Borderline Personality, are addressed in this intriguing, dark novel.

Thank you, William Morrow Publishing and Edelweiss, for my advanced review copy.

The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen–#Book Review

The Wife Between Us:.jpg 850.jpg

Don’t Miss The Wife Between Us, Coming 1/9/18

Synopsis

When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.
You will assume you are reading about a jealous ex-wife.
You will assume she is obsessed with her replacement – a beautiful, younger woman who is about to marry the man they both love.
You will assume you know the anatomy of this tangled love triangle.
Assume nothing.
Twisted and deliciously chilling, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen’s The Wife Between Us exposes the secret complexities of an enviable marriage – and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.
Read between the lies.

My Review

The Wife Between Us is an intense psychological thriller with many twists.
Vanessa had just graduated from college when she met Richard; a man whom she thought was too good to be true. Richard was charismatic, handsome, and wealthy. He was also everything Vanessa thought she wanted in a man. So when Richard started to flirt with her, Vanessa quickly fell for his charms. What Vanessa didn’t know about Richard’s personality, though, was that he was also sneaky, manipulative, and controlling. Richard was sure that Vanessa, would make the perfect wife. She was fun, pretty and needed him. Their marriage and blissful life, however, would not last long. After a new lover entered Richard’s world, their shaky marriage became more than just troubled; it began to disintegrate.

There is much more than just a simple love triangle going on in this novel. Richard and Vanessa are playing devious, cunning games with one another. Betrayal is something that’s never welcomed in a marriage, but then again, neither is violence. Deception and trickery are the main components in this story. The Wife Between Us is a compelling, brilliant read.

Thank you, St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

Intense psychological thriller
Brilliant
Twists and surprises
Well written
Slow build and twists
What I thought was happening I found out that I was wrong
I felt bad for Vanessa, Richard a couple of times and even Emma. But, the twist that took me by surprise at the end I never saw coming. Very enjoyable. Twisty psychological thriller.

Sarah Pekkanen thumb.jpg

Bio
Sarah Pekkanen is the internationally-bestselling author of the novels THE PERFECT NEIGHBORS, THINGS YOU WON’T SAY, CATCHING AIR, THE BEST OF US, THESE GIRLS, SKIPPING A BEAT and THE OPPOSITE OF ME.

Her upcoming novel THE WIFE BETWEEN US is a twisty psychological tale co-authored by Sarah and her former editor Greer Hendricks. It will be released in January 2018.

Sarah is the mother of three boys, which explains why she wrote part of her novel at Chuck E. Cheese. Seriously. Sarah penned her first book, Miscellaneous Tales and Poems, at the age of 10. When publishers failed to jump upon this literary masterpiece (hey, all the poems rhymed!) Sarah followed up by sending them a sternly-worded letter on Raggedy Ann stationery. Sarah still has that letter, and carries it to New York every time she has meetings with her publisher, as a reminder that dreams do come true.
