My Thoughts

Today I am on tour with Suzy Approved Book Tours, Author David Bell, Berkley Pub, and GetRed PR.

This was my first David Bell book, but it won’t be my last!  Fast paced, suspenseful, and full of mystery is how I would describe this book.  You’ll pick this up and keep turning the pages because you have to know what happens next!  This is one I couldn’t wait to get back to when I put it down.  The plot seemed to thicken at every page.  I found my heart racing at multiple points and even shouting in disbelief!

I wouldn’t say I connected with any of the characters, and that usually bothers me, but not this time.  Each character had so much going on that I just wanted more information on each one.  Bell delivers!

It was interesting how social media played a part in this story.  Blake kept telling Ryan it seemed that he had the perfect life/job/family because of what he posted online.  It was far from the truth, but Blake didn’t know that and he wanted a piece of that perfect life.

Get ready for the twists and turns!  The author does a good job with them, and they randomly pop up throughout the book.  Just when you think you have it figured out, and you have to be right because there are not that many pages left in the book, here comes another shock!  That ending! Wow!

This is one you don’t want to miss out on! Be sure to grab your copy June 30, 2020!

Book Rating: 4/5

For the grand finale this would pair nicely with a 2016 Chateau de Santenay, Mercurey 1er Cru `Les Puillets`, Burgundy.


Ryan Francis has it all—great job, wonderful wife, beautiful child—and he loves posting photos of his perfect life on social media. Until the night his friend Blake asks him to break into a woman’s home to retrieve incriminating items that implicate Blake in an affair. Ryan refuses to help, but when Blake threatens to reveal Ryan’s darkest secret—which could jeopardize everything in Ryan’s life—Ryan has no choice but to honor Blake’s request.

When he arrives at the woman’s home, Ryan is shocked to find her dead—and just as shocked to realize he knows her. Then his phone chimes, revealing a Facebook friend request from the woman. With police sirens rapidly approaching, Ryan flees, wondering why his friend was setting him up for murder. 

Determined to keep his life intact and to clear his name, Ryan must find the real murderer—but solving the crime may lead him closer to home than he ever could have imagined.
