From the outside looking in, Sarah Taylor-Cox appears to have it all. She lives a privileged lifestyle that includes a handsome husband, a beautiful baby boy, and a gorgeous house in the Hamptons. Truly, she is the envy of many. But looks can be deceiving. For, in fact, Sarah's life is a far cry from being perfect. Her husband, Warwick, is narcissistic, manipulative and controlling. Her mother-in-law is the same, if not worse.
When it comes to her own family, Sarah is guarded, keeping them at a distance and shrouded in mystery--especially when it comes to her sister Maisey--a nurse who travels to impoverished countries offering aid where needed. Once close, these sisters have been estranged for many years. But with her son's christening looming on the horizon, a forced reunion might soon be forthcoming.
Even in a crowd, Sarah exudes loneliness. Add to the mix, the cattiness that surrounds Sarah, hiding behind the guise of well-meaning acquaintances and friends--people who only help to reinforce her low self-esteem and feelings of inadequacy. You can't help but to feel sorry for the woman who appears to have everything, and yet in reality, has very little at all.
But it's the secret that Sarah holds close that is the most compelling component to this story. A secret that Sarah fears will soon be revealed. And it's this very secret that will have me coming back for more!
"Take it to the Grave" is a dark, psychological thriller that is served up into 6 separate installments. Personally, I have no issue with serial novels, as long as I'm not left dangling for too long in between releases. This is definitely not the case here, as all installments released on the very same day. So, why then, is this story broken down into 6 parts to begin with? One can only conclude that this is nothing but a calculated ruse to hook readers in hopes of garnering more money for a novel that might not otherwise command such an exhorbitant price. But, who knows... "Take it to the Grave" in its entirety, could very well be worth every penny. Only time will tell. I, however, am intrigued just enough to want to give this story a fair chance.
Sarah is a financially privileged new mother living with her husband in a lovely home in the East Hamptons. Her child is adorable, her husband is movie star handsome, and at first glance she seems to have few worries. We soon learn that's not quite true. I immediately took a dislike to her husband. He's controlling and judgemental, deciding what Sarah wears and chiding her about her decisions as a mother and her baby weight. Baby Elliot is three and a half months old! I don't care how handsome you are, hubs. You seem like a bit of a jerk. His mother is also a hard pill to swallow, nagging Sarah as well.
In a completely different area of the world, Sarah's sister Maisey is living a completely different life. As a nurse working in impoverished places in the world to set up clinics and provide healthcare, she has no set home. She moves around often from one place to the next, with no one to tie her down... and no one that even knows her real name. The sisters haven't spoken in years, but Sarah is pressured to contact her by her mother in law, who wishes to meet her family and no doubt, appraise them. The sisters used to be extremely close, but it's unclear what has driven a wedge between them... at least in part one.
Not long after contacting her sister, Sarah receives a mysterious and threatening email that could change her entire life. But what's her secret?
I'm giving this one a 3.5 for intrigue. I'm very curious how the story will continue.
I received an ARC of this book from Net Galley and Harlequin, thank you! My review is honest and unbiased.
