Many thanks to Tracy Fenton and Compulsive Readers for my spot on this Blog Tour.
Ben was driving a car when a man jumped in front of it. And he died. Ben befriended the widow and child and kinda became stalkerish in his guilt. The book was the journey of their lives post the accident.
My first book by author Robin Morgan-Bentley, the story gave off creepy vibes which pulled me in. Both the main characters had their own agenda which filled me with suspense. I too began to peruse their motives. The author evoked my curiosity to investigate all actions of the protagonists.
The story moved at a swift pace. The characters were all weirded out which was understandable since they were in an unusual circumstance, linked together by death. Guilt could take different forms, and the author perfectly dealt with that along with different aspects of mental health and depression.
This was a low suspense story, where the ending caused my eyes to widen. There weren’t many subplots per se, just two flawed characters who were both interesting in their actions and reactions.
Overall, the story pulled me into my kindle one chapter at a time until my drive to know the truth made me read it at one go.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
