Verity by Colleen Hoover
Updated: Jan 30, 2020
I’m speechless. You see a book being talked about everywhere, but after being disappointed in the past by bestsellers, you learn not to believe the hype. This book, however, lives up to the hype in my opinion.
I mostly read romance, so this suspenseful thriller (not sure if it qualifies as a mystery) was a detour from my usual reading habits.
What can I say about this book? It makes you question who’s the good guy and who’s the bad guy. It makes you wonder if the heroine is slightly mental or the only character who can see the truth. It makes you reevaluate your sense of what is right and what wrongs can be justified.
A struggling writer, Loren, is offered a three-book deal to complete a series for Verity, a successful writer who was incapacitated after a car accident. While sorting through notes and files in the woman’s office, Lowen discovers a biography Verity wrote titled “So Be It.” As a mom, I found myself shocked and intrigued by Verity’s biographical manuscript. What was real and what was imagined? That is left up to the reader to decide.
Trigger warning: child abuse, adultery, battery, domestic abuse
