The more I think about Victoria’s last book, “Jane Doe”, the more I absolutely loved it. Needless to say, I’m so excited to have her latest book in my hands!
Thank you Amazon Publishing for gifting me a copy in exchange for my honest review.
Synopsis: For days, all of Denver, Colorado, has worried over the fate of a missing child, little Tanner Holcomb. Then, a miracle: handsome, athletic Johnny Bradley finds him, frightened but unharmed, on a hiking trail miles from his wealthy family’s mountain home. In a heartbeat, his rescuer goes from financially strapped fitness trainer to celebrated hero. The heat of the spotlight may prove too much for Johnny’s picture-perfect family, however. His wife, Veronica, despises the pressure of the sudden fame, afraid that secrets and bitter resentments of her marriage may come to light. And she’s willing to do anything to keep them hidden. But when a shocking revelation exposes an even darker side to Tanner’s disappearance, Veronica realizes that nothing in her life can be trusted. And everything should be feared.
I absolutely LOVE Victoria’s style of writing. It’s so sharp and captivating! I loved “Jane Doe” and was really excited for this one. Sadly, this did not live up to the hype for me. I read it all in one sitting and couldn’t put it down because her writing is so good (those cliff hangers at the end of every chapter get me!) but the plot was just so similar to other domestic thrillers out there. I’m looking at you “The Couple Next Door”. I will continue to always read books by Victoria, but just wasn’t a fan of this one. Jane Doe #2 I cannot wait for you!!!!

Oh I haven’t read any by this author. I want to try her books. Lovely review… I don’t mind oft repeated domestic thrillers if written well
