"I have to say that I THOROUGHLY enjoyed this book!! It has amazingly unique characters, making it hard to choose one favorite, but I would have to say that Annie is my favorite! All of the characters become "real" people with the authors' in-depth detail into each individual's personality. The twists and turns had me reading on and on, even though I needed to go to bed for work in the a.m., but some things are worth staying up late for!! The ending is shocking and nothing I would have guessed!!!" Goodreads Review
"5* Poisoned Love stars
It has been a while since I read an A.B. Whelan novel so when this arrived on my kindle I was beyond excited because I knew I was in for a thrilling and suspenseful read. This story didn't disappoint!
From the first page you will be captivated by the storytelling surrounding the sudden disappearance of Julia Rose from a family cruise. This event will lead to an all-consuming desire for revenge where the young Annie Adam’s will stop at nothing to avenge Julia’s death.
Secrets and betrayal abound and pasts will come back to haunt those who thought they were long buried. The twists and turns were real and believable. When justice is served will it be worth the trauma and sacrifices encountered along the way?
The backstory of Annie Adam’s was totally unexpected and pivotal to the storytelling. Some of the side characters were so unsavory and self centered. The author did a wonderful job at portraying this.
I thoroughly enjoyed the journey this book took me on. It was steeped with revenge, paranoia and a dysfunctional greedy family." Goodreads Review
"I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It has intrigue, mystery, fantasy, family issues, greed, romance and sex.....what more could you ask for? Annie has a story to tell and is determined to find justice for Julia. I promised not to include spoilers so I won't but I am telling you I couldn't put this down." Goodreads Review
"The story is about a young woman with an agenda: revenge for what was done to another.
Diary entries of the victim help implement the revenge plan.
But what happens, when diary entries are just fragments of an old life? - Are they really a reliable source? And worse, what happens when the search for justice suddenly becomes an obsession without borders? - Will the truth come to light anyway? Or does she have to remain buried deeply?
"This Love Kills Me" is a gripping revenge thriller with the bitter taste that life is rarely fair." Goodreads Review
