Title: If She Wakes (Harlow #2)
Author: Erik Therme
Genre: Mystery & Thriller
Who do you trust when everyone is lying?
My name is Tess Parker.
Two days ago, I was in a car accident with my sister-in-law, Torrie. Before she slipped into a coma, she asked my husband and me to care for her four-month-old son, Levi.
Yesterday, a woman claiming to be Torrie’s estranged sister knocked on our door. But Torrie has no siblings . . . or so she said. She and my brother were only together a short time before he left, and Torrie has clearly been keeping secrets.
Today, another of Torrie’s “sisters” has come to town. Both say the other is lying about who they are.
Neither of them is telling the truth.
Both of them want Levi.
I’d like to thank Zoe from Zooloo’s Book Tours for contacting me to take part in this blog tour. I read the first book in the series last week and was keen to see what happened in the next one.
Well we certainly start off with a bang don’t we? Tess and her sister in law Torrie have been in a car accident and now Tess and her husband Josh are looking after their 4 month old nephew, Levi, whilst they wait to see if Torrie will awake from her coma! For Tess this is proving to be quite difficult as she is still grieving the loss of her 5 year old daughter Lily and trying to repair her marriage to Josh.
When Torrie’s older sisters, Jessie and Mia, turn up Tess doesn’t know what to believe but she knows something isn’t right. Both the siblings have quite a lot to reveal about Torrie and it is clear that they are here for one thing, Levi.
I had to sympathise with Tess a lot in this story as I honestly didn’t know what to believe and as more revelations occurred it was clear that everyone had a secret in this story. Unlike the first book of the series this one was more action packed from page to page and the dramatic finale was something I had not seen coming.
Lies and deceit are littered throughout these pages and it took me less than a day to read from cover to cover. I actually think I prefer this to the first book as well. Something tells me there may be a third book, based on the epilogue, and if there is then I will definitely be picking that one up!
