Book Rating: 4.5/5
CoHo is a mastermind and I’m officially a forever fan. I’ve often wondered about how authors of thrillers/suspense can create such intense stories. This book gives us a twisted glimpse into the mind of such a writer. This book never stalled, never tripped. It was a full speed, twisty ride until the end. I didn’t want to put it down. Verity will take everything you thought was creepy and make it seem like a children’s bedtime story. Enjoyable is not an appropriate word for this book. Disturbingly entertaining seems a more apt description. The only reason I didn’t give a full 5 stars is because I felt the romance side was missing depth.
Trigger ⚠️ – intense sexual content; child abuse; As a mother, this storyline completely gutted me.
Audiobook Performance Rating: 5/5 Johansson lent sophistication to Lowen’s credulity and Landon artfully portrayed Verity’s truculent manipulation. The whole book was filled with emotion and great character definition. Both narrators were great in their roles. Well done. Definitely listen to Verity!
Book Food Rating: 3/5
Food was scarcely mentioned in this book- but that’s okay; I was too busy ingesting psycho. ha! Seriously, there were a few generic references: tacos, spaghetti. I upped the rating to a 3 because of the Chicken and Dumplings scene. It’s worth the read.
