I made a mistake when I downloaded Verity, which I won’t go into, but what a terrific mistake to make! I loved reading this book. It was a real page-turner, one which I wanted to go to bed early for so I could carry on reading.
Lowen is a struggling writer who is asked to finish a series for a highly successful author, Verity, who has been hurt in an accident. She finds herself at Verity’s home in Vermont with the nurses who care for Verity, Jeremy, her husband, and Crew, their last surviving child. The house is shrouded in tragedy and the family, loss.
As Lowen works her way through Verity’s office to get a handle on her series and looks for any hints as to where Verity might have been going with it she discovers a manuscript, an autobiography.
This read becomes a book within a book as Lowen can’t stop devouring chapter after chapter of the autobiography and as she does she discovers a side to Verity she wishes she hadn’t.
The suspense is terrific in a wonderfully creepy way and the romance built realistically. I have no hesitation in recommending this book and will definitely be reading more from this author.
