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 Review: 4 stars
What in the world did I just read?
Lowen Ashleigh is offered the chance of a lifetime, co-write with bestselling Verity Crawford. Problem is Verity is injured and Lowen will have to pick up where she left of with very little help. Lowen is not sure about this offer at first but she decides to do it because she needs the money.
What Lowen doesn’t expect it so find Verity’s manuscript. As she reads the manuscript, she learns that Verity is hiding secrets. Very dark and twisted secrets. Lowen knows that Jeremy, Verity’s husband doesn’t know about the manuscript and she knows she can’t tell him.
But the more time Verity spend in the Crawford home, the more she senses something is not right. There are more secrets in the Crawford home than anyone could have ever imagined.
But everything is not as it seems. There are plot twists. There are secrets reveled. And some of them will shock you. At the end you will not know what to believe.
This book was really good. I think there was really good character development. I think the story flowed and it kept me at the edge of my seat. I never knew what was going to happen next.
The reasons that this book did not get 5 stars was because I felt one of the plot twists was to easy to figure out and I really wish we would have had some chapters from Jeremy’s POV.

I just added this a week or so ago to my TBR – I keep seeing it everywhere. Great review!
Shame about one of the plot twists but at least it was a good read.
I think this would be a good book, I have read good reviews for it.
I can’t wait until this one comes up on my TBR schedule.
I’ve never read anything by this author as I’m not a romance fan but lately the more intense topics featured in her books are piquing my interest.

How many times have I seen Colleen Hoover’s books around? I really need to get a move on!
Great review! Hoover is one of my fave authors and I’m sooo excited about reading this one. I keep hearing only great things about it and can’t wait to find out for myself what I’ll think of it. I love how she’s changing a bit when it comes to her writing. She’s venturing into sub-genres that I’m really interested in – I looove her ‘regular’ romance drama stories as well though but this one and Without Merit for example, which is YA, look so interesting! Hope I get around to read it soon.
