Book: Verity
Author: Colleen Hoover

Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to 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 really happened the day her daughter died.

Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents would devastate the already grieving father. But as Lowen's feelings for Jeremy begin to 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.-Goodreads

Review: Do you like dark, twisty reads with uncomfortable subject matter and endings that don't end in a perfect red bow? If so, look no further. This is the next book for you. 

Lowen Ashleigh is hired to complete a book series by the famous author, Verity Crawford. You see, Verity has been in a bad car accident and is incapacitated. She can no longer write. So Lowen moves in temporarily with Verity, her husband and young son to do research and finish the books. However, when Lowen finds a manuscript Verity was working on, let's just say she gets side tracked. 

I finished this book and initially thought-okay, disturbing and I liked it. Then I found myself joining a Facebook group to discuss the ending and recommending to friends. I'm still recommending it. So..rating bumped up from 4 to 5. If disturbing reads are your thing, enjoy!

Grade: 5/5
