About the Book:
Not having a child can change your life as much as having one.
Grace has returned to London after twenty years abroad to manage her dying mother's affairs. When she receives a blank Mother's Day card in the post, she is confused and unsettled. Who could have sent it to her and why? She isn't a mother. Another Mother's Day card arrives. Then come the silent phone calls. Haunted by disturbing flashbacks, Grace starts to unravel. Someone is out to get her. Someone who knows what she has done.
Whatever is covered up will be uncovered, & every secret will be made known.
This book has all the elements you look for in a great read. Character development is a key part to the storyline. Some you will root for and some you will grow to despise, but you never quite know who you can trust until the end. The characterization was very well done and I had no trouble picturing the people who populated the book. Cassie had my empathy at the beginning, but there were these signs that something was off about her but I couldn't quite put everything together.
The story kept my interest all the way through. Tracey Emerson has a great suspenseful writing style, it is intense and captivating, she knows how to describe deep and dark emotions and combines them with an intriguing mystery. She Chose Me is filled with suspense and despair. I liked how well Cassie's character comes to life, I love it when I can get so close to a main character. I was both moved and captivated by her sad story.
This is the type of book that a reader cannot put down. I was drawn into this story and all of the believable characters that the author created. Tracey Emerson has crafted a story that is so well written and leaves the reader enthralled until the very end, I enjoy reading books about secrets and really liked this one. The premise of the book was compelling and it was definitely a darker look at motherhood.
Thank you NetGalley, Legends Press and Tracey Emerson for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
