Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to finish.

Lowen arrives at the Crawford home, ready to sort through years of Verity’s notes and outlines, hoping to find enough material to get her started. What Lowen doesn’t expect to uncover in the chaotic office is an unfinished autobiography Verity never intended for anyone to read. Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity’s recollection of what really happened the day her daughter died.

Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents would devastate the already grieving father. But as Lowen’s feelings for Jeremy begin to intensify, she recognizes all the ways she could benefit if he were to read his wife’s words. After all, no matter how devoted Jeremy is to his injured wife, a truth this horrifying would make it impossible for him to continue to love her.

~ My Thoughts ~

Most books I read I need to feel the characters, create a bond with them so I can feel everything they feel. With Verity I bonded with the story line. The characters, they were incredible, perfectly structured, intriguing, interesting, all consuming. It was the story line though, that enhanced the characters thought process and movements.

Verity showcases the talent of this author.

Shocking moments in the beginning of this book literally had me thinking, what the hell did I just read. Boundaries of the mind were pushed and I couldn’t get enough of this intense psychological game of cat and mouse.

While reading Verity, you allow the author to control your thought process. Something I didn’t realize until I had finished reading the credits.

I am not going to go into detail about the story line, you can read the synopsis for that. I am not going to go into detail about the characters as I think going in blind is best for anyone planning to read this story.

What I will share with you is this. The story, the characters and the mystery are intoxicating. A wonderfully chilling scripted story of love, death, destruction and betrayal. A pulse pounding, invigorating story of truths, lies and everything in between. A story you will want to read from start to finish without interruption.

One of the best parts, for me at least was the ending. Brilliant twist in the story. Just when you felt yourself relax, a sense of peace washing over your extremely distraught emotions you realize the author isn’t finished manipulating your mind.

I know what I believe happened in the end. The question is do you?
