Many thanks to publisher Bookouture for my spot on this Blog Tour.
WHAT. THE. FREAK. I tell ya author Sheryl Browne has evil synapses in her brain cells. She could twist a simple scene with her words, making it convoluted, wicked, and all time shivery. I kept swaying like a pendulum. To believe or not to believe the characters…
It was a simple straightforward story. Josh died on the tracks. His parents Cassie and Adam were heartbroken. On their doorstep stood a woman with a child claiming him to be Josh’s son. That started the story…
Having read all books by this author, I could see how far she had come. Evil came in various forms, and one of them was Sheryl Browne. She gave me unreliable characters, really weird ones, who appeared nice, but I was never sure of them. Then she gave me a plot which inverted over itself midway. The one I liked became the one I was scared of. Then she gave me reveals, not those tiny ones, but huge earth shaking…err…book-shaking ones.
The book would change directions frequently. I was kept on the back foot the whole time, not knowing what was happening. There were parts I guessed, rather I hoped the author would write in. And I was blown away when I was right… I think I would make a cool wicked character.
Suspense kept the prose flowing and secrets made it more intriguing. The story never let up until the last line when truth was revealed to me at last. It was not the characters but the author who had given in to the darkness within. Damn! A shiver sure coursed down my back as a strand of my hair caressed my cheek. Sheryl, pun intended.
Wicked… Wicked… Wicked!!
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
our Secrets. Her Lies.
Cassie stares at the woman on her doorstep in disbelief. Just months after losing her only son, Josh, here stands a stranger claiming to be Josh’s girlfriend. But it’s not only the woman Cassie is shocked by, it’s the baby nestled in Kim’s arms. Cassie’s grandchild.
I know what you did.
As Cassie tries to do what’s best for baby Samuel, she starts to receive threatening messages from someone from her past – someone Cassie has been hiding from for a long time. Cassie is frightened that her biggest secret is about to be revealed and she will lose everything, including her precious grandson.
You took everything from me. Now you need to pay.
As the messages get more sinister, Cassie realises the person behind them knows every detail about her life and she fears that she is being watched. Could Kim be the link between Cassie and the mysterious messenger? And is she in danger now that she has welcomed this woman and her baby into her home?
