Par : Colleen Hoover
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.
A standalone romantic thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, releasing December 18th.
Mon avis :
Un livre différent! Cette fois, l’auteure trempe sa plume dans le thriller et la psychologie… une lecture perturbante et excellente!
Lowen est une jeune auteure pas trop bien dans sa peau. Elle obtient un contrat miraculeux, celui de terminer la série de l’auteure Verity Crowford, qui a de graves problèmes de santé. Lowen est loin de se douter de ce que cache cette famille comme secrets et comment ils perturberont sa vie à jamais…
J’ai littéralement dévoré cette lecture. On se pose mille et une questions, on n’est sûr de rien, et ce, jusqu’à la toute fin… Un coup de cœur!
