"Then along came a resentful ex-boyfriend—thanks to her inconsiderate blabbermouth girlfriend—and an embittered son. Was it an omen?" ~ 45%
Bestselling author Connie Briscoe is legend! I still remember her P.G. County book from back in the day with its rich plot featuring characters of color. Briscoe returns with a new novel of domestic suspense and a character that mirrors her own hearing impairment in You Never Know.
Alexis Roberts is asleep when someone breaks into her home and tries to assault her. She manages to escape but can offer no help to the investigation as it was dark and her cochlear implants couldn't be found. Just a year earlier, Alexis marries Mr. Right a bit too soon. She unearths that his first wife is missing and he was the main suspect. Isolated and alone, Alexis waits for the intruder to return.
I'm disappointed in You Never Know. The main character was not the brightest color in the Crayon box. Her actions made no sense and seemed almost juvenile. If someone is after you, do something and not be a sitting duck. The story picked up in pace way too late for me to care about the ending.
Happy Belated Pub Day, Connie Briscoe! You Never Know is now available.
