The perfect family. A moment that will change everything.
Emma thought she had the perfect life: a beautiful home, a loving husband and a gorgeous son.
She was wrong.
She wakes up in hospital, with no idea how she got there or why her husband and son won’t come to see her. What happened to Emma’s family?
As Emma tries to piece her memories back together, she remembers that her husband was hiding something from her, and that someone was watching their house.
She remembers that she was afraid.
Emma is desperate to find out what happened – and that her loved ones are safe – but remembering the truth could be the most dangerous thing of all…
Previously published as Don’t Let Me Die. This edition contains significant editorial revisions.
Thank you to Bookouture for letting me take part in this tour. This is the first book I have read by Alex. The blurb excited me and the original cover of the eye scared me. Perfect for a psychological thriller. I do however prefer this cover. There is something more refined about it.
Emma wakes up in a psychiatric hospital. She knows something terrible happened but her brain has repressed the memory. The story flicks between before and after the ‘event’ that led Emma to the hospital. Emma is a pretty likeable character. She’s easy to root for.
I naturally have a suspicious mind when I am reading these sorts of books so I tend not to trust anyone. I didn’t trust Emma’s husband. He seemed like he might have some shady contacts. The other person I immediately distrusted was Emma’s brother. There was something about him that made me shiver.
I really enjoyed Alex’s writing style. It was so addictive. I could feel myself getting tired but I just couldn’t stop reading. At one point I was so tired I fell asleep with my kindle still in my hand!
I was reading and reading and I noticed I was at 87% and I thought ooo this has to be unravelling soon. I kept reading and the tension in me was building and building. I knew something big was coming but I just didn’t know when. When the truth was finally unveiled I let out a big breath I hardly noticed I had been holding. I was so tense.
I’m really looking forward to more of Alex’s books in the future.
