Author: Colleen Hoover
Genre: Thriller, Romance
Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, the husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife cannot 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 happened the day her daughter died.
Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents would devastate the grieving father. But as Lowen’s feelings for Jeremy 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.
If you’d asked me the book’s genre, I would classify it as a psychological thriller; however, it has a romance element to it as well. The story is about a novice author commissioned to take over the last several books of a popular series by a very highly regarded author, Verity, after tragic circumstances left Verity unable to complete her series. Upon researching the notes and journals left in Verity’s office, Lowen finds herself engulfed in a sea of secrets, tragic life circumstances, and questioning the life of this author she looked up to.
This book was impossible to put down. I lost sleep over it, didn’t eat, and could barely pull myself out of bed to go to work. The characters were very well developed. The journal entries found of Verity’s were real, gut-wrenching, horrific, and at a few points, actually made me sick to my stomach. However, I couldn’t stop reading. From the start, Hoover’s writing style grasps you by the shoulders and does not let go. I found myself surprised at various parts of the book at the direction the book turned and the events that unfolded. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a suspenseful read.
DISCLAIMER: This book does contain vulgar language and sex scenes.
I give Verity by Colleen Hoover 5 out of 5 stars.
