Desperate to fill the emotional void, Peter becomes involved with a woman from his grief support group.
But as his relationship with Alice progresses, Lauren becomes unsettled.

Who is she, really, and what does she want?
Lauren is right to be suspicious.
But the deeper her investigation of Alice goes, the greater the danger grows . . .
What was it all about
Here Lies Alice by J. A. Baker was a dark thriller at the core where a father and daughter were just coming to terms after the murder of mother Sophia.
Alice entered their life bringing happiness.
But there was something off about her as the story progressed.
Who was she?
How it made me feel
It was exciting as each character showed off their gray shades. I liked that the author cast them not like normal main characters.
They were all likable yet there was something off about them.
After I reached the end of the book, I understood how much I liked the title.
Written in 3 POVs, the book threw out a lot of red herrings to keep me within its pages.
Luckily for me, it was fast paced and easy to finish. Lies, secrets, and revenge were weaved in well.
Very easily predictable. The story followed the same formula as many authors had written.
A solid yet predictable thriller.
I downloaded the digital version of the book from an online retail, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
If you’ve loved the review, buy me a cuppa to perk me up.
