#15 Those Girls - Chevy Stevens (EARLY REVIEW)

They wanted him gone . . . Then it was their turn to disappear.

The three Campbell sisters, Dani, Courtney and Jess, had always dreamed of a day when their dead-beat alcoholic father would disappear . . . But when their dream becomes a reality, the consequences are more frightening than they ever imagined. Assuming new identities, they have to permanently forget the past.

Eighteen years later, Jess, who now goes by the name Jamie, is faced with a serious problem. Her own teenage daughter is asking too many questions; to answer them will involve her unveiling long-buried secrets about her youth, truths she has spent so long trying to forget. Because why did they all run away that night? And what really happened to their father?

Will those girls ever be able to leave the past behind or is it doomed to haunt them for ever?

A thought-provoking and thrilling portrayal of the lengths people will go to protect the ones they love, Those Girls is the latest novel from bestselling author of That Night and Still Missing.

REVIEW:
What an ending!
I just finished the book and am blubbering like a baby. Strange, since the story is scary as heck! The ending though, was anything but scary.
Skylar is an amazing girl, even if naive. Her naivety is sweet though in a very endearing way. She has the best intentions. She is still a force to reckon with in this tale. 
Boy-oh-boy though, the villains in this one are terrifying! Especially Gavin. He's the kind of scary that keeps you up at night.
Definitely true to Chevy's writing, the story pulls you in and paints the most terrifyingly vivid picture. I love that though! She is definitely a master storyteller in the thriller department. I have read all of her books, I guess you can say I am a super fan. She is simply my favorite Canadian author. Why? Because her stories scare the shit out of me, and I like that.
If you haven't read any of her books, I urge you to do so.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
