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.
I keep questioning myself. Did Colleen Hoover really write this book? From successfully writing contemporary romance novels to psychological thriller, I have to commend her for writing this book.
The story is about a struggling author, Lowen Ashleigh secures a book deal being a co-author to Jeremy Crawford’s wife, Verity because she’s incapacitated and still has to complete the remaining books in her series. However, Lowen discovered a manuscript in Verity’s office which revealed the secrets of her past.
Verity is creepy and disturbing. There are scenes in this book that made me uncomfortable. I made a wrong decision to read it at night. I have my guesses and I was right but towards the end of book, it became mind boggling.
What’s so good on this, the story is manipulative and deceiving. I am still confused and dumbstruck in the end. I don’t know who to believe and makes me question everything. I enjoy it. Now I’m mad.
