Many thanks to publisher Bookouture for my spot on this Blog Tour.
Wowza!! What a book!! It gripped from the blurb to the last page. Suspense. Action. Thriller. One of the most twisted plot lines in recent times. Author Victoria Jenkins sure had a ice in her veins when she wrote this. She proved the adage true – a good deed never goes unpunished.
After a night out with her girls, Jenna decided to take a short cut through the park when a cry for help made her rush to save the life of the victim who was stabbed in the neck. Ambulance and police were called. And they barely managed to save the woman. Jenna decided to visit her the next day and to her shock, the woman accuses her of that crime. Prison was looming large when Jenna decided to get to the killer.
Having read many of this author’s books, I still managed to be shocked completely. I thought I had a grip on thrillers, and I had seen it all. But no no… This one was elusive. The characters were super interesting. Jenna emoted her predicament well. I could feel empathy for her. I too was confused at one point. Was Jenna lying? The author sure kept me on my toes.
Secrets in the family added another layer of subterfuge. Was Jenna being framed by her loved one. The questions were many, and each chapter added to my thrill. I had to admit every word gave me a sadistic thrill. The book pulled me in, and I loved swirling in the whirlpool of confusion. Why would a stranger frame Jenna?
Absolutely unputdownable. I couldn’t stop reading till the end.
I received a ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
All my reviews can be read here
They say she’s guilty. She says she’s not. Who do you believe?
‘Help me! Help me, please!’
When Jenna hears the cry in the park one night, she feels she has no choice but to run and help. Cradling the injured woman in her arms, the attacker nowhere to be seen, all Jenna wants is to keep her alive until the ambulance arrives and for the ordeal to be over.
But the nightmare begins when the victim wakes up…
Jenna’s relief turns to horror when the finger is pointed at her. There must be some mistake: she’s never seen the woman before in her life, and Jenna tried to save her life. Why would she accuse Jenna of a crime she didn’t commit?
As the case against Jenna grows, her world starts to fall apart. Her teenage daughter is keeping secrets and her husband is growing more distant every day. To save her family and clear her name, Jenna has to prove she didn’t do it. But someone knows something Jenna did do. And they want to make her pay…
