The story had every element a good story should have. An exciting plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s an abundance of well illustrated scenes that really make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that's something I really look for in a good book.
The book description says it all; “One dark and rainy night, Eva, a young girl, receives the traumatic message that both her parents have died in a car crash. With no relatives, Eva is compelled to learn how to live on her own. But in the days that follow the accident, strange incidents begin to occur: she receives an odd phone call, a mysterious document is found in the pantry and a check is delivered by mail addressed to a person she does not know.
With the help of her high school friend, Roy, she opens the sealed boxes of her life and embarks on a fascinating journey. She meets another young man who holds a secret that will influence her forever. He falls in love with her and leads her into a world she could not have known to exist.
From a quiet and insecure girl, Eva becomes an independent, confident, and assertive woman. Along with the two men in her life, she uncovers the most hidden and unimaginable secrets about her family and herself. But is she willing to pay any price to pursue the truth?...”
Now, if that’s not enough to whet your appetite, I don’t know what will. But if you want to find out what happens next, you’ll just have to turn the pages for yourself to find out!
This captivating and commendable work had me immersed from the beginning. The story flows from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional skill when it comes to storytelling. There are attention-grabbing moments in this page turner that will take the reader on a fascinating journey! There’s no doubt that this author is a talented storyteller.
It’s one of those stories that come along once in awhile that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader!
I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from Einat Lifshitz Shem-Tov in the future. I would definitely recommend this book. Five stars from me.
I thought the book would be a ghost story at first, and I absolutely love ghost stories. With the odd phone calls, mysterious documents, I really expected it to go into that direction. It didn’t, and at first, I was a little dissapointed but then I realized this was actually a good thing. I actually preferred the thriller / mystery elements over the rest of the story. I mean, there’s also some romance and it wasn’t bad, I liked it and it added tension and drama, but I liked the mystery elements a lot more.
Eva is an interesting character, and I enjoyed watching her grow and become less insecure, and more confident. An entertaining read for fans of mysteries and thrillers. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
Then I thought it is a thriller. But it wasn't just a thriller. Because there were lots of things that I wouldn't call thrilling. Rather terrifying and sick and sad.
And there is, of course, love story, only that one was a predictable one.
This is a story about a young woman who becomes orphan and trying to get together her life after losing her parents. But things are not always like they look like. Especially after death. And what starts as a "let's stop being depressed" begins to be a nightmare, a crime novel, a history lesson, a horror and a thriller, all in one.
As for the plot itself, it turned out to be nothing like what I expected, and quite a bit of what I didn't know I needed. There are some hard truths in Eva's story, and some difficult moments of epiphany. At times I found I didn't care for Eva, and at others I'd feel my eyes water up in sympathy. At one point, the story touched me personally, and I had to set the book down to allow tears to fall. I'm not opposed to tears or other strong emotional reactions, however it doesn't happen often. This is one book that I plan to purchase a physical copy to keep and reread and share.
I received an ARC copy of this book, and chose to leave an honest review.
