REVIEW: Do you love a Psychological Suspense that leaves you breathless? Yes! Good, because I have just the book for you. It is the new book We Don’t Leave by Emerald O’Brien coming out July 22, 2021. Y’all, this book had me spellbound. It grabbed me hard the first few pages and then it was a slow burn until the last third of the book. Then you better grab your seat and hang on. It’s a wild ride until the end!
I feel like the luckiest girl! As a reviewer, I have been blessed to read some of the best authors and bring my thoughts about their new books to you. I can’t think of anything better than that. I’m so fortunate to read Emerald O’Brien. She writes stories that I enjoy reading and then the added bonus of the Suspense. She lulls you into thinking you know what is going on and then she blows up your mind!
Her character development and her story lines are some of the best. I thought many times during this story I knew where it was headed. I didn’t. I wasn’t even close. If you like a book that pushes your boundaries or at least makes you think outside the box, you will like We Don’t Leave. I’m not going to stop thinking of this one for a long time.
I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest review. Thank you, Emerald!
SYNOPSIS: Who can you believe when you can’t trust your own eyes?
Hayden is excited to begin a new life with her husband, Sid, after he accepts a job offer back in his hometown. She doesn’t love the idea of being so far from her family, but she understands why he’s pushing for the move—after a car wreck and addiction issues, it makes sense that he’d want a fresh start. Sid has even agreed to throw a party to celebrate the transition.
But when Hayden steals away to their cottage for some time alone, she makes a shocking discovery.
Terrified, she races home, but by the next morning, she’s more confused than anything.
What did she really witness? Is her mind playing tricks on her? If she’s right, what she saw might upend both her marriage and her very freedom.
But Hayden can’t risk making accusations, not without proof.
After all, it’s not the first time she’s seen something that wasn’t there.
