The book kept me guessing until the end when the final twist is revealed. Part of what I enjoyed about the book was the idea of story and how we create our own story often because we are afraid to face what really happened. The protagonist is the young widow of a well-known author. She owns one of the top literary agencies in New York. She believes that she had the perfect marriage. She refuses to listen to anything that conflicts with the story of her marriage that she has convinced herself is true. Ultimately her inability to critically examine her past puts her in the path of a murderer bent on revenge.
A want-to-be writer begins stalking Jo Donovan after his manuscript is rejected by her literary agency. Her world begins to rapidly fall apart after various actions threaten her agency and people close to her are murdered. A couple of her clients offer help. One of them, a former FBI profiler turned writer, encourages her to go to the police. The NYPD detective assigned to the case turns out to be her former boyfriend who has a very different perspective of their relationship and how it ended. Everyone is a suspect at some point as the police try to find Jo’s stalker and the murderer (are they one and the same?) before the murderer strikes again.
Disclosure: I received this book as part of a Goodreads giveaway on the premise that I would review it.

Suspense to the very end. wonderful characters and a mystery plot that kept you turning the pages to see what was next. Plus to got to learn a lot about the world of publishing, editors, writers and those dreaded rejection slips. A great, enjoyable read. I look forward to the sequel.

Your standing in a tch of sugary-smelling grass. In one direction, you see yourbentrance. The other, a giant pop bottle towering into the sky. You look down at your black shoes, and sigh, then beginbto walk twords the mountain. Your teal amd bwhite socks with pink stripes in the white brush against eachother, and you pick a strand of grass. It tastes of cotton candy, and a twig tastes of peppermint. 'Where am I?' You think, looking around. Your glossy black hair is tied up with a strand of licorice, and you have candy stuck in your hair. Your hazel eyes glow as you hear someone you know threaten to lick something. ((To be continued))
