I was instantly hooked!
It is insanely suspenseful!
The Baker’s Wife, Audrey, formerly known as the pastor’s wife, has an accident on the way to the bakery. It was early in the morning, and dense fog surrounded them as she turned into the intersection and hit something. As soon as she gets out of the car she slips in blood, and then finds that she hit a motor scooter, but not just any motor scooter. It belongs to Julie, the wife of Sergeant Jack Mansfield, a detective and the member of the church that got Audrey’s husband removed from the pulpit. They can’t find the rider anywhere, but there’s a lot of blood and Julie Mansfield is missing.
This isn’t one of those books filled with unnecessary details. In fact, it seems that the author gives a lot of room for your imagination to run wild, and then slowly reveals each detail. Which, in my opinion, kept the suspense at full tilt.
The characters were so believable and real, but living a horrific nightmare. I didn’t completely “get” Audrey’s abilities and connection with others, but found myself curious about her gift.
Oh, you know how when you really like a book you want to tell everyone about it. This is one of those books. I wanted to write so much more, but I really don’t want to give anything away. It isn’t a terribly long book, only two hundred and something pages, but I promise you won’t want to put it down.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Booksneeze in exchange for an honest review.
