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. Find here on: AMAZON

Be still my beating heart. I want more. I'm making my husband read this, so I can live vicariously through him as he reads this for the first time. He'd catch me talking to myself with a whole bunch of 'WOW's or 'Oh no she didn't' and 'No she wouldn't go there!' and most probably could review this book just based on my reactions. Even after I finished the book, I would still be caught thinking about it over the next few days and randomly vocalize a reaction to the point where he just told me to spill the beans because apparently I needed to talk this one out. I DID!!! The blurb does not do this story justice. Verity is masterfully sinister and will get under your skin and fester. It's addicting and an adrenaline high being in the mind of a mystery author. I already love books about authors, but this is the best I've read by far. An author, writing about an author, being in the mind of another author! Extreme inception! That structure was brilliant. You get to be inside of two minds yet were still watching their lives as spectators. This will 100% be a reread and I'll be hosting a giveaway soon on Instagram because everyone needs to read this book.
“I moved to this city to be invisible, but I am certainly not impenetrable. It’s something I’ve been working on—attempting to become as hardened as the concrete beneath my feet. It hasn’t been working out so well."
"It took me a while to go to sleep after that because in a house this size, noises are inevitable. And with the imagination of a writer, every noise becomes a threat."
“What you read will taste so bad at times, you’ll want to spit it out, but you’ll swallow these words and they will become part of you, part of your gut, and you will hurt because of them.”
“It’s what you do when you’ve experienced the worst of the worst. You seek out people like you… people worse off than you… and you use them to make yourself feel better about the terrible things that have happened to you.”
