Amazon Editorial Review

Truth

Megan Keeler died years ago--or so everyone believes. In fact, she disappeared to escape from her sadistic husband, Glenn. When dismembered body parts were found near their home, Glenn was convicted of his wife's murder. And Megan, terrified for her unborn child's safety, never came forward with the truth. . .

Is More Terrifying

Since then, Megan has built a new life in Seattle for herself and her son, Josh. She's never forgotten that she's a fugitive, and Josh knows nothing about her past. But someone does. First, there are anonymous emails and threats, just as she learns that Glenn has been released from prison. Then the unthinkable happens: a masked man breaks into their home and abducts Josh. . .

Than Fiction

To save her son, Megan must put herself at the mercy of a maniac. Is Glenn a cold-blooded killer determined to destroy her world piece by piece, or is the truth even more twisted? Megan thought she knew fear, but her nightmare is only beginning. . .

8 out of 10

Megan Keeler died years ago. Megan faked her own suicide and ran away from her abusive husband(Glenn) from Chicago to Seattle. Not long afterwards the police find the dismembered parts of a woman close to Glenn's house and charge him with Megan's murder. Megan at the same time finds out she is pregnant and fearing for her son's life keeps quiet and hidden. Glenn is convicted and goes to jail.

Fifteen years later, Josh, Megan's son knows nothing of his mother's past. Megan begins to get threatening letters. Glenn has just been released from jail because DNA testing proved the body was not Megan. And then the unthinkable happens and Josh is kidnapped.

This book is definitely a page-turner. Just when the reader thinks he has things figured out another twist comes along to displace the latest theory.

Journal Entry 4 by wingHoserLaurenwing at Mississauga, Ontario Canada on Saturday, February 23, 2013

5 out of 10

Lisa Swan thought she had the perfect marriage until her husband beat her one night. He swore it would stop but instead it got worse and worse. When Lisa found out she was pregnant, she staged her suicide in to a river and left for Seattle with a new alias. What she didn't know is that someone followed her and wants her all to himself. Over the course of the next 14 years she notices things go missing but thinks its her son or just misplaced items. Then she starts getting calls asking for her by her real name. Lisa is scared and with good reason.

The plot was pretty unbelievable. Why would someone wait more than 14 years to make their move? He could have done something much sooner so why wait? The worst part of this novel, however, was the manufactured suspense at the end of what felt like every paragraph. I felt like the author was using cheap tricks to keep my interested and it started bothering me after the first 60 pages or so. Every trick in the book was used. It's his reflection, not a person coming after you. It's an animal's eyes in the woods, not a person coming after you. Give me strength. The cherry on the cake was that I determined who the villain was early in the book and the whole thing ended with a fizzle rather than a bang.

My mom, AceofHearts, passed away from breast cancer on September 17, 2013. Aside from being one of the best people I know, she was an avid reader and took immense pleasure in Bookcrossing, her book club, and reading many great books.

I will be releasing this in my mom's memory.
