Dear Colleen Hoover,
Feel free to write more thrillers in the future.
“Somewhere up there is the house, and somewhere inside of that house lies Verity Crawford.”
What. Did. I. Just. Read?!!
If you’d told me last year that one day I’d be reading a Colleen Hoover novel, I certainly wouldn’t have believed you.
The book more or less starts off with a bang. Our protagonist had witnessed something awful happen right in front of her. And from that moment on, you’ll find yourself hooked and beyond drawn to the pages.
Lowen Ashleigh, who’s portrayed as such a badass woman in this book, gets more and more interesting as we watch her character being peeled away progressively.
She’s given this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to continue a series written by incredibly successful author Verity Crawford. But she – us readers too – can already get the feeling that this job offer isn’t such a good idea, considering the mysterious history of tragedies that Verity’s family has known, the elusiveness of why Lowen was really picked for the job, and the coincidental horrifying occurrence that she had to witness at the beginning of the book.
Lowen moves into Verity’s home, and it’s not until she stumbles upon one of her manuscripts that Lowen finds herself thrusting into this author’s elusive mind.
Inexplicable things start happening at the house. And 1/3 into the book, you’ll realize how Verity’s character is the most strangely captivating one – one that’ll keep you wondering, “Do I really want to know more about this peculiar-minded woman?”
The dialogue kept me on edge. And the things that are about to be revealed about this woman will just leave you breathless.
As you read more about the things that’ve happened to Verity and her children, you’ll feel as if you’re spying on this strange family – a voyeuristic effect that adds an extra dose of liveliness and suspense.
The author challenges everything we think we know about the characters, while our main character Lowen is torn between her attempt to leave this house where she feels she’s going completely crazy, and finding out the truths it hides.
Verity is going to trigger you, disturb you, challenge your sanity and provide you with the most overwhelming experience.
