I received an advance copy of this book from NetGalley.
Four years ago, I lied. I stood in front of the police, my friends and family, and made up a story, my best one yet. And all of them believed me.
I wasn't surprised. Telling stories is what made me famous. Fifteen bestsellers. Millions of fans. Fame and fortune.
Now, I have one last story to write. It'll be my best one yet, with a jaw-dropping twist that will leave them stunned and gasping for breath.
They say that sticks and stones will break your bones, but this story? It will be the one that kills me.
The Ghostwriter by Alessandra Torre is a dark, haunting story about secrets and lies. It’s a story about obsession and loss. And ultimately, it’s a story about forgiveness and love.
Helena Ross is a successful, bestselling romance author. She’s at the peak of her career. But her next novel will be her last.
Helena has a shocking secret that she has kept hidden for the past four years. But in her final book, all will be revealed.
Because this book is so wonderfully twisty, I think it’s best enjoyed without giving away too much about the plot.
Helena is a character who I know will stay with readers long after the book is over. She’s richly complex and my feelings toward her completely changed by the end of the book.
Torre’s writing is both lyrical and poignant. Her words soar off the page. I found myself engrossed in the story, but frequently had to pause, go back, and re-read because the writing is so beautiful—and, in many cases, heartbreaking. As I read the final chapters, I had to set the book down at one point because I couldn’t see past my tears. It’s that good.
I highly recommend The Ghostwriter.
