Review: You'll Never Know, Dear
Title: You'll Never Know, Dear
Author: Hallie Ephron
Publication Date: June 6, 2017
Genre: Psychological Suspense
Recommended If You Like: strong female characters, psychologically-driven suspense, family-centered mysteries
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my opinion of the book or my review itself.
Lis' sister, Janey, went missing one day from their own backyard. Forty years later, a woman turns up with Janey's doll, setting in motion a series of events that will change the lives of multiple generations.
What I Liked:
I love a book that deals with secrets from the past, and this is a book that definitely does that. There are so many questions and twists that come up throughout the whole book, and so many mysteries to solve.
There are some really great, complex characters in this book.The main characters are all women, all strong in their own right, but with their own struggles and secrets. Everything the characters are now is somehow linked to that fateful disappearance from the past, even Lis' daughter who wasn't born when the tragedy occurred.
Anything I Didn't Like?
I sometimes felt like there was too much going on. Reveals would sometimes seem to come out of left field, and it could get difficult to keep everything straight sometimes.
This may not be the best psychological suspense I've ever read, but I did enjoy it. I read it in about a day, and found myself not wanting to put it down because I had to find out what happened.
