I will tell you the truth now.  At first, when I started reading Truly, Madly, Deadly by Hannah Jayne, I was ready to write it off.  The main reason being just how annoyed I got with main character, Sawyer Dodd.  But then…the twist of all twists happens, and what I thought I knew about this story blew my mind and I ended up really enjoying the read in its entirety.

After the death of her abusive boyfriend, Sawyer Dodd is slowly trying to get her life back on track.  Perhaps even date again.  But when a mysterious note appears in her locker, with a clipping of the article related to her boyfriend’s death, the words “You’re welcome” are enough of a hint that things are not always as they seem, and someone who thinks that they have done the biggest favor for Sawyer (by relieving her of an abusive relationship), ends up taking a somewhat fatal attraction to Sawyer.

With different pieces of the puzzle slowing clicking together, Sawyer decides to take it upon herself to solve some of the mystery on her own.  But with someone obviously watching her every move, how will Sawyer know who to trust, and who to watch out for?  And at what cost?

What I really enjoyed was how the identity of her stalker isn’t revealed until the very end.  And even when it is revealed, I honestly didn’t even consider this person as one of the suspects!  That, my friends, is how to write a great mystery/whodunit.  Leave the reader guessing until the very end, and then throw in the OMG factor.  And for that, I must say, “Well done, Ms. Jayne…well done…!”

I also couldn’t help but get caught up in the fact that Sawyer was in an abusive relationship, unbeknownst to anyone else…except for her stalker, of course.  It was heart breaking to read as she relived the downfall of her relationship.  The beautiful, sweet beginnings right down to the destructive, ugly end where Sawyer finally takes a stand and says NO MORE.

I really enjoyed that everyone in the book was a potential suspect.  I was left guessing and rethinking who the culprit was, only to be foiled!  What did annoy me was how Sawyer didn’t go directly to the authorities, or talk to anyone in general.  Instead, she kept it in, suspected everyone…and bad things continue to happen.  Even when she finally decides that the time has come to speak to someone about it, it was like pulling teeth having her decide whether to spill, or continue to harbor her secret.

And with what happens in her home and the baby room?  Ummmm…why didn’t she say “No, it wasn’t me!”?  Why continue the farce of everything is hunky dory and yes, I’m probably a little angry and rebellious so I will pretend that I destroyed everything…  That definitely annoyed me.

All in all, Truly, Madly, Deadly by Hannah Jayne, is definitely worth the read.  Especially for fans of suspense type reads with a Fatal Attraction type feel to it.
