They say she’s guilty. She says she’s not. Who do you believe?
‘Help me! Help me, please!’
When Jenna hears the cry in the park one night, she feels she has no choice but to run and help. Cradling the injured woman in her arms, the attacker nowhere to be seen, all Jenna wants is to keep her alive until the ambulance arrives and for the ordeal to be over.
But the nightmare begins when the victim wakes up…
Jenna’s relief turns to horror when the finger is pointed at her. There must be some mistake: she’s never seen the woman before in her life, and Jenna tried to save her life. Why would she accuse Jenna of a crime she didn’t commit?
As the case against Jenna grows, her world starts to fall apart. Her teenage daughter is keeping secrets and her husband is growing more distant every day. To save her family and clear her name, Jenna has to prove she didn’t do it. But someone knows something Jenna did do. And they want to make her pay…
This book already starts on a high. I had no idea how the story would develop and of course little by little I started putting things together and, as usual I was trying to guess how it would end. I thought it was easy. One plus one equals two, right? Only it seemed that I came up with three… Wrong again. 😉
The majority of the characters seems to be members of the liars club. Some telling lies to protect others, some wanting to hide their secrets, some combine both reasons. Telling a white lie will be excused, but these are more like the blackest of black lies.
Once again, not being honest only gets you so far. You can only hope, that once you come clean, your loved ones will be able to forgive you and let you into their heart completely again.
I loved this story. I loved the way the author managed to send me off in the wrong direction and to surprise me with the outcome. 5 stars.
Thank you, Victoria Jenkins and Bookouture
