CROSS HER HEART – Sarah Pinborough (Released on paperback January 14th, 2020)


Book Description:

“Sarah Pinborough is about to become your new obsession.”—Harlan Coben

Lisa is living a lie and everyone is about to find out.

Lisa lives for her daughter Ava, her job and her best friend Marilyn.

But when a handsome client shows an interest in her, Lisa starts daydreaming about sharing her life with him, too. Maybe she’s ready now. Maybe she can trust again. Maybe it’s time to let her terrifying secret past go.

But when her daughter rescues a boy from drowning and their pictures are all over the news for everyone to see, Lisa’s world explodes.

As she finds everything she has built threatened, and not knowing who she can trust, it’s up to Lisa to face her past in order to save what she holds dear.

But someone has been pulling all their strings. And that someone is determined that both Lisa and Ava must suffer.

Because long ago Lisa broke a promise. And some promises aren’t meant to be broken.

My Thoughts: 5/5 stars

When the cover says that you won’t see it coming, you know it’s going to be an exciting read! I’m a huge fan of Sarah Pinborough and she has become an auto-buy author for me. CROSS HER HEART did not disappoint! As a slight warning, there is some abuse towards children portrayed in the book – but not much.

This one is hard to really talk about because I don’t want to give away anything and spoil it. To fully enjoy this book, all you really need to know is what the synopsis tells you. We follow Lisa and her daughter Ava. Like some parents can be, Lisa seems a little overprotective of her daughter, but with good reason. What secrets is she keeping to herself?

There wasn’t one huge reveal or shock in this one, but rather a couple spread out between the three parts to the book. This one uses one of my favorite common elements in thrillers and that is the multiple POV’s – I’ll always love how this style will slowly answer questions as the book progresses (or sometimes raise more of them!). Overall, this one was a great thriller with some twists and turns thrown in to keep you on your toes. Pinborough books seem to divide readers, so it will be interesting to see what others think of this one!
