What would you do if your life was a lie—and everyone knew but you?
Jane has come a long way from the dark days of the horrific car accident that robbed her of many memories. Living the life of a shopgirl with a charming boyfriend—a handsome, green-eyed doctor named Derek—is so satisfying that she doesn’t want to revisit her past.
But the past insists on revisiting Jane. People keep thinking she’s Samantha, a dead girl who looks exactly like her. Now, Jane is determined to discover her connection to the girl, leading her to question everything from her relationship with Derek to her own sanity. Should she believe Rory, the man who insists she actually is Samantha? Or should she depend on Derek, who offers her love and shelter…but who may have other reasons for keeping her under wraps? Who is telling her the truth—and what are the others hiding?
Blood and Bone by Tara Brown
If you’ve read the synopsis, you know you are about to read something that will leave you lingering in the story long after that last page. Tara Brown’s Blood and Bone is a dark, twisted tale that makes all other psychological thrillers look tame by comparison. Strap in for a read that is like a kaleidoscope of terror, lies and countless mysteries just begging to be uncovered.
Jane is a normal girl, living a normal life, or is she? When she is approached by someone who will swear that if she isn’t a woman named Samantha, she is her dead ringer. It happens, but Jane begins to feel things, see things and undertakes a search for her “twin.” What she discovers is beyond anything she could have imagined and will send her spiraling into a world of lies, danger and unanswerable questions.
Are things that play back in her mind just wisps of past dreams or is something more sinister going on? Can she trust the man she loves or is he part of a cruel game of hide and seek with her mind?
Dark, chilling and beyond intense, Tara Brown spares nothing in weaving a web of lies and half-truths that will leave one woman hanging on to her sanity by a thread as she races to discover who and what she is.
