A binge-worthy read of a missing millionaire author and a friend obsessed with finding out the truth and bringing her justice from the author of 'As Sick as Our Secrets', '14 Days to Die', and "If I Had Two Lives'.
A family cruise. A murder. A mystery. Secrets and lies. Sex and betrayal.
Trusting her in-laws was her first mistake.
Julia Rose, an acclaimed millionaire fantasy author, wife, and mother to a young boy, disappears on a family cruise. Did someone push her overboard? Or did she fall?
Three years after the incident, a beautiful young woman shows up in Manhattan, calling herself Annie Adams. With the help of Julia’s former attorney, Annie establishes herself as the new estate manager of the Rose family. But Annie didn’t take the job to make Julia’s widower richer. She is in the city to find out who tried to kill Julia and why, and make them pay.
When her dedication turns into obsession, Annie has to decide if she is willing to pay the high price for bringing justice.

"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
"OMG, this book is fantastic, I actually cried during parts of the reading of the journal. It was a very sad & intriguing story. Your books always keep me on my toes!!! Annie is a very heroic & a very determined young lady.
A.B. Whelan is a very talented writer & I will be waiting for her next book." Goodreads Review

This Love Kills Me
By : A. B. Whelan
This Love Kills Me is a fast-paced psychological thriller with characters you will not soon forget. From Tony to Brooke , Julia and Annie i loved each one.
I have read a lot of books so far this year. Some have been off the charts good , some were terrible ,and some that were so so. This one is definitely a OFF the charts AMAZING for me. If i could give it 10 stars i would.
I was immersed in this book from the very first page until the astonishing twisted ending !!! I could not stop reading even though i had so much stuff i needed to get done today . There is so many secrets, and so many suspects . I had to just keep reading.
The storyline was packed full of mystery, suspense, lies and was an excellent psychological thriller. Brilliantly written with twists and turns that keep you guessing right up until the jaw dropping ending .The characters are all very realistic and described so well I really felt that I got to know them all. When the story ended i felt like i lost my best friend. I am a avid psychological thriller reader and I can honestly say that A. B. Whelan has set the bar incredibly high for the others. Seriously one of the best psychological thrillers I’ve read in a long time ❗The ending was absolutely perfect and I would LOVE to see this turned into a movie!!!! And PLEASE A. B. Whelan turn this into a series . I need so much more of these characters. 🙏🙏🙏Even though this was a new to me author , she has become one of my favorite authors . I can not wait to read all of her other books.
I received a free E -ARC copy of this book prior to release. Many thanks to the author for the chance to read and review a copy of this interesting book in exchange for my honest review.
Wow, what a rollercoaster of a book! I loved it. It had everything you could want in this type of book - Twists and Turns, Secrets and Lies. I honestly did not see any of it coming and I could not put it down, I read it in two sittings and would highly recommend it.
Thank you to NetGalley and Burbank Books for my ARC.

Three years ago Julia Rose, a well-known author, disappears while on a family cruise. Did she fall overboard? Deliberately jumped? Was she pushed? Or has she faked her own death?
Annie Adams is working with Julia's former attorney and has become the new estate manager of the Rose family. But Annie has another agenda ...
And her agenda just might get her killed ....
Told in part by Annie, part with Julia's journal, bit by bit the reader discovers what happened to Julia .. and why.
She left behind a husband, a young son, and her in-laws, all who were on the cruise ship the night she disappeared. So what really happened?
There's plenty of action. a high level of suspense, and the mystery will keep you glued to the pages until the final conclusion .. when all is revealed. The characters are solidly drawn, but beware not everyone is who they seem to be. Obsession, Greed, Love, Toxic Relationships all play a part.
This is my first A.B. Whelan book and it definitely will not be my last!!!!!!!!!! Now i have to go back and read all of the previous books and stalk him/her on social media. I loved this story and this authors writing style of storytelling. I highly recommend this book
