September is here! What the hell happened to August?
Thanks to MIRA Books and Harlequin for the free advanced copy in exchange for my honest review.
TEAR ME APART – J.T. Ellison (out now!)
My Thoughts: 4.5/5 stars!
Last year I was introduced to J.T. Ellison when I picked up her book LIE TO ME. I was immediately hooked and she quickly became an auto-buy author for me, so when I saw she had a new book releasing, I couldn’t wait! TEAR ME APART is another addictive read, but it is different than LIE TO ME. This one still keeps its hold on you until the end, but it’s not a crazy twisty thriller.
There are two timelines – one that brings us into a mental facility and then into the present with a skier that is rushed to the hospital after taking a nasty fall. I don’t want to give anything else away – the synopsis does a great job for this one – simply because it’s a story you should go into fairly blind.
Ellison creates these flawed and complex characters and dives into the topic of mental health. The chapters that had to deal with the mental facility were so intriguing to me and I would have loved more of those! We also get a dose of DNA work and analysis (another topic that fascinates me) that adds another layer to this intricately woven story.
There is no doubt that Ellison is an incredible writer. The way she peels back the layers for us as the story progresses is amazing and she is able to tie everything together in the end without it feeling too perfect. If you’re looking for an absorbing suspense novel, then this needs to be on your TBR!
