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 the night their family was forever altered.
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.
After a terrible accident, Verity Crawford is unable to finish writing her best selling book series. Her husband hires Lowen Ashleigh to ghostwrite the remaining books. While searching for Verity’s notes, Lowen comes across an unfinished autobiography by Verity. The autobiography was never meant to be found, and contains some chilling admissions.
Told with the alternating viewpoints of Verity and Lowen. Lowen is a struggling author who prefers to live a very private life. The opportunity to ghostwrite a popular series comes at a time when she needs the money and the escape. Verity is a popular author who is basically catatonic after an accident. Verity is married to Jeremy, who Lowen starts to have feelings for as the story progresses.
A plot that is fast-paced, twisted, and complex. Characters that are well developed, intriguing, and unlikable. A thriller that will leave you unsettled. Recommended to fans of domestic thrillers.
