    Great Thriller!

    This book was intriguing in several ways. The main question, which is did Melissa Slade kill her two twin babies, is difficult to deal with. We are presented with Melissa, who is normal mother and we know she wouldn't do this. We are introduced to those who were around her and in the house when these deaths took place....and things start seeming "off". Told through the eyes of the reporter who first reported on the case, as well as his new associate, who is helping with the coverage of Melissa's quest to obtain an appeal, we find memories of the original case, new information with everyone having grown older now and time having given a different perspective, as well as ripe skepticism. Parts are told in Melissa's voice, and again, there is some confusion. This book kept me guessing the entire time I read it. There were some coincidences which may have added new layers, or may have been just coincidences. Good book. Guessing until the end. People we like, people we don't like. All the characters seem true. Some we feel sadness for, others anger. A good, solid read. I received my copy of this book from NetGalley and I thank them.

    Very Well Done!

    Very well done! Melissa loses one of her twins apparently to SIDS - is that her fault? Then the second twin dies and the cause is not as clear - is this one her fault? The author has done a spectacular job of developing her characters and showing the light and dark of each of them. Once you start this one you'll be hard pressed to put it down. The real question here is Do You Believe Her?

    A fab read

    Omg omg omg I don’t know whether to laugh at the sheer brilliance of the thriller or cry at the pathos weaved in the storyline. Melissa was in prison for killing her newborn baby. One child died, it was ruled as cot death. Second too died in 3 weeks, it was MURDER. She was tried and convicted until an appeal brought hope of her release. Journalist Jonathan and colleague Kelly soon got to investigating, and the truth revealed was simply soul-chilling. My first book by Diane Jeffrey, and I have become a permanent fan of her writing. A mind blowing storyline, which had the excitement coursing through my veins, made it a delight to read. The plot twists had me going WOW after every few pages. AND THAT LAST CHAPTER TOOK MY BREATH AWAY. It was everything a thriller ought to be. My pulse skyrocketed. OMG. I simply couldn’t believe what I had just read. Told in multiple POV of the 2 journalists and mother Melissa, the characterization was realistic and with genuine emotions. Each of them had something happening in their personal lives which was triggered by Melissa’s story. They were all trapped in this whirlpool where secrets had to be forgotten, changes had to be made, and revenge had to be taken and justified. Diane Jeffery has made this book a rocking, absolutely unputdownable roller coaster of a ride where the dips were so low that they touched the darkness of a human psyche and the ups were so high that I was instantly dizzy. It was nothing short of sheer genius, a master storyteller who could make the heart thud with a single stroke of her pen. I was still trembling with the rush of adrenaline while writing this review. WOW
