And how far will she go to protect him?
From Manhattan to the Caribbean, Rob and Ellie struggle to escape the grip of Rob’s former life - a life his employers are determined to ensnare him in for good.
When faced with a terrible choice—to become a murderess herself to save the man she loves, or to let him die—Ellie’s decision propels her into a whiplash-paced adventure, filled with cinematic twists and a startling sense of unease.
An overall suspenseful and solid read with a bit of intrigue, romance, suspense, and murder. Told in differing point of views and time frames, the author lays a solid foundation for a thrilling read that will leave readers questioning the character’s motives. I enjoyed the premise of the book as it is fairly unique and found the characters to be interesting. While some of the time frames seemed like useless fillers for the story, I can appreciate the importance of them as they give readers to any and all questions they may have about the story.
What would you do if the man you married turned out to be someone totally different than you once thought? That is the idea surrounding Just Fall. This book brings into play secrets and lies within a marriage and dark lives that one wouldn’t know existed until now. The characters in this story are taken on a journey of self-discovery and unearthing secretes that could lead to their demise. Ellie is on a search for her missing husband, the one man she loved when she didn’t think she could ever love again. But when she finds him, will she like what she finds out? Or will the deceptions hurt her and everyone else affected beyond repair?
This is a solid debut novel that caught my attention from the get-go. At first I was comparing it to the works of Gillian Flynn as the author has a knack for showing us the darker sides of human souls. But as I read further it became apparent that the author has her own unique flair for writing that is incomparable to others. This is an enjoyable debut and I look forward to seeing what else the author has in store for us in the future.
