    3.5 stars. I was drawn to this book for its premise of a grief-stricken former investigative journalist writing a true crime book about a mother on trial for killing her child. There is no fast-paced action here; it's a psychological novel with a slow, steady build-up. It's less abo...

    A journalist who thinks she knows the truth. A murder suspect who may or may not remember which version of events is the one that actually happened. A tense and deadly game of cat and mouse. With this stunning and twisty novel, Hank Phillipi Ryan cements her status as a master of the m...

    This book was so frustrating that it's a miracle I finished it. At about the 40% mark in the story I had my suspicions that this was to be an awful story and, sure enough, with the introduction of Ashlyn to Mercer in part 2 the ridiculous train started chugging. It feels like a dream m...

    I liked the first half of the book and was sailing through it pretty quickly and then it turned weird and I had to trudge through the remainder of it. Honestly, I would have tough time recommending it. I thank Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book. ...

    Timely, suspenseful, well crafted ? all true, and irrelevant, as this novel is impossible to put down, so as you read you may simply be inhaling Ryan?s words. It?s going back into the story that gets you really thinking. Ryan frequently uses her extensive professional background ...

    Thank you to Hank Phillippi Ryan for sending me an ARC of this book, in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own. For people like me, who were/are glued to the t.v. regarding news like Casey Anthony, Andrea Yates, Susan Smith, and the like. This book was very much pul...

    This is my first experience with this author - and I doubt that it will be the last! I was completely engrossed from the first pages and had my battery reading light not needed to be recharged last night, I definitely would have read it in one sitting! The premise of a young mom mu...

    This book was so frustrating that it's a miracle I finished it. At about the 40% mark in the story I had my suspicions that this was to be an awful story and, sure enough, with the introduction of Ashlyn to Mercer in part 2 the ridiculous train started chugging. It feels like a dream m...

    This story was a complete surprise! Just when I thought it was one thing, it became another. Plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing. This was my first by author Hank Phillippi Ryan and I am sure I'll be back for more. The main character, a journalist, is asked by her editor to...

    3.5 stars. I was drawn to this book for its premise of a grief-stricken former investigative journalist writing a true crime book about a mother on trial for killing her child. There is no fast-paced action here; it's a psychological novel with a slow, steady build-up. It's less abo...

    A journalist who thinks she knows the truth. A murder suspect who may or may not remember which version of events is the one that actually happened. A tense and deadly game of cat and mouse. With this stunning and twisty novel, Hank Phillipi Ryan cements her status as a master of the m...

    ?Trust Me? by Hank Phillippi Ryan , is a first person narrative by Mercer Hennessey, who is struggling to go on after an accident that claimed her child and her husband. ?Using one forefinger I write on the bathroom mirror...442?Four hundred forty-two days since the car accid...

    Still grieving her husband, Dex, and 3 year old daughter, Sophie, journalist Mercer agrees to write a true crime book about a young mother, Ashlyn, on trial for murdering her daughter, Tasha. Is it true that "only Ashlyn" could have killed her precious, 2 year old daughter? Will she be...

    3.5 stars. I was drawn to this book for its premise of a grief-stricken former investigative journalist writing a true crime book about a mother on trial for killing her child. There is no fast-paced action here; it's a psychological novel with a slow, steady build-up. It's less abo...

    This is my first experience with this author - and I doubt that it will be the last! I was completely engrossed from the first pages and had my battery reading light not needed to be recharged last night, I definitely would have read it in one sitting! The premise of a young mom mu...

    This book was so frustrating that it's a miracle I finished it. At about the 40% mark in the story I had my suspicions that this was to be an awful story and, sure enough, with the introduction of Ashlyn to Mercer in part 2 the ridiculous train started chugging. It feels like a dream m...
