Verity – Colleen Hoover ★★★★★

Blurb; 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; My first Colleen Hoover book and boy did I choose a good one. Her only thriller from what I can see, rest are romance. I devoured 50% of this book in one sitting. Such easy, fast paced reading. I was hooked from the beginning. Poor Lowen I was on her side until the end. Parts of this book are very disturbing and dark to read especially as a mother myself. Verity is one messed up, twisted character.

But then everything you ever thought you knew about Verity is turned upside now. The ending is explosive and unexpected. The ending really made this a five star read for me. Jaw dropping. Gob smacked. Highly recommend. A well deserved five stars from me. This will be hard to forget. I’m going to give her romance books a try but this has set my expectations high. A must read.
