After the author reached out to me to see if I would be interested in reading and reviewing this book, I jumped at the chance. Thrillers are my genre of choice and one in which the main character suffers from insomnia is not something I come across too often.
I was so immersed in Becky’s world that I had a difficult time coming back to my reality after I finished this book. It reads as if Becky is a real person that you know. Becky’s world was so realistic and the thoughts and fears were very present to the reader. It is a fast paced read and not very long so as soon as you start page 1, you are in it. I didn’t want to stop reading it.
It is a psychological thriller that leaves you breathless and contemplating what you thought you knew. I highly recommend that you pick up this book! In fact, here is the link to purchase it: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B086Q9B11B?tag=jerowneywrite-20
I gave this book 5 crowns.
