A Woman Alone

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis:  A house with the darkest of secrets.
A woman who is the only one who knows.

It's another bright, sunny day in Venture, Illinois, the sort of place where dreams come true and families can get a fresh start. Cecelia Holmes deserves it after the home invasion that shattered her previous life. Now everything seems perfect - her high-security SmartHome, her doting husband, her sweet daughter.

Until she begins to feel spied on. Her husband doesn't believe her. Her neighbors ignore her. So when she discovers a shocking secret about the prior occupant of their house, she feels that she has no one to turn to. And now Cecelia must face her fears alone...

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  Loved it! Even though I really had no idea what was going on and who was behind all the incidents Cecelia was dealing with, I was hooked after chapter one.  Extremely entertaining.  Everything comes together with about 5 chapters left and it is worth every page turned to get there.  Superfast read.

Would I Read Other Books by the Author:  I really like Nina Laurin's books.  I always look forward to her next book.  See my review on The Starter Wife.  I have read What My Sister Knew and still need to read Girl Last Seen.

Nina Laurin studied Creative Writing at Concordia University in Montreal, where she currently lives. She arrived there when she was just twelve years old, and she speaks and reads in Russian, French, and English but writes her novels in English. She wrote her first novel while getting her writing degree, and Girl Last Seen was a bestseller a year later in 2017.

Nina is fascinated by the darker side of mundane things, and she's always on the lookout for her next twisted book idea. Learn more
