Thank you to the publisher for gifting me a paperback copy of this book to read and share my review with my followers.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
The voice in her head says he’s guilty. She knows he’s innocent.
Devon Burges is in the throes of a high-risk birth when she learns of her dear friend’s murder. The police quickly name another friend as the chief suspect, but Devon doesn’t buy it—and despite her difficult recovery, she decides to investigate.
Haunted by postpartum problems that manifest as a cruel voice in her head, Devon is barely getting by. Yet her instincts are still sharp, and she’s bent on proving her friend’s innocence.
But as Devon digs into the evidence, the voice in her head grows more insistent, the danger more intense. Each layer is darker, more disturbing, and she’s not sure she—or her baby—can survive what lies at the truth.
Devon is a new mom going through post-partum depression, that is causing her to hear voices in her head. Voices that tell her she is a bad mom. Despite the voices in her head she is determined to believe she is a good mom, all while helping uncover a murder mystery and prove her friend’s innocence. The police think her friend is guilty, but Devon doesn’t believe it.
I loved Devon’s character development in this novel. She was a likable character, and I felt so bad for her and all the negative voices in her head that she had to endure and battle. Imagine loving your young infant, and having voices tell you that you don’t. Despite this, she is a bad-ass lead character in this novel, and she is determined to find out the truth. Despite the fact that the main character was unreliable, her character was witty, charming, intelligent, and determined.
A great novel that was a joy to read. Make sure to check it out!
MY REVIEW: 4/5 stars
