How far would you go to right a wrong?
Nine months ago, Tess’s five-year-old daughter was killed in a car accident. The driver, Brady Becker, was sentenced to two years in prison. It didn’t make Tess’s pain go away.
Brady also has a daughter: A twelve-year-old named Eve who walks to Chandler Middle School every day. Tess knows this because she’s been watching Eve for the last three weeks. It isn’t fair that Brady’s daughter gets to live, while Tess’s daughter does not.
When Eve goes missing, all eyes turn to Tess, who doesn’t have an alibi. But Tess isn’t guilty.
Or so she believes.
If She Dies by Erik Therme is an excellent thriller. My first read from this author, and I’m impressed. From the first page to the last, this book was addicting. I love the build of suspense, and the fact that I was on the edge of my seat.
I really liked the developed characters. I think books are stronger when the characters are like they are in If She Dies. It makes the story more compelling to follow characters that feel incredibly real.
The writing is excellent. The plot kept me flipping the pages as quickly as possible, and the characters made it even better. This will not be my last read from this author. I highly recommend giving this one a read.
