My Thoughts

I have been so frustrated trying to write this review; the first 75%, I was fully on board, it started off strong and hit the ground running. I was enjoying reading it and looking forward to what I hoped would be a fantastic conclusion. What I got instead was a lot of head shaking as I found the last 25% of this book improbable. 

I’m rating this a 3, because it really did hold my interest and I appreciated the story up until that last quarter.

I’m looking forward to seeing the author continue to hone her writing, as she is capable of creating really engaging stories. 

This one is available now on Kindle Unlimited.

A brilliant psychologist faces the secrets and lies of her own dark past in a shocking novel of suspense by the Washington Post and Amazon Charts bestselling author of A Familiar Sight.

“Gretchen…What have you done?”

Psychologist and criminologist Dr. Gretchen White, top consultant for the Boston PD, has solved countless cases—but never her own. Since the age of eight, she has lived her life thinking she killed her aunt. After all, she was found standing over the body, clutching a bloody knife. Most people, including Detective Patrick Shaughnessy, believe the little sociopath got away with murder. Thirty years later, Detective Lauren Marconi wants to prove them wrong.

When plucking at the threads of the past unravels a decades-old case tied to the White family, both Lauren and Gretchen grapple with the question, What if Gretchen really is guilty? As old secrets come to light and Gretchen’s lifelong grip on her darkest impulses threatens to erode, Shaughnessy is there watching, waiting for her to lose control one more time.

Everyone thinks they know what happened that night. But the truth is beyond what anyone imagines—even Gretchen herself.
