My Girl - Jack Jordan

Woo-hee, this book had me! I mean goodness gracious; I loved every minute of it! I loved the way the author had the story come back around and I was I seeing the story from a different angle. This novel had a terrific storyline, I mean it was fabulous!!! (Excuse all my exclamation points). I was squirming in my seat as I was reading, my emotions were all over the place and I can’t tell you how many times I was talking to my Kindle. I had a variety of expression for this novel, whether it was, “No, frickin’ way!” “What!?!” or “You have got to be kidding me.” This is a definitely a hairdryer novel.  

 

This is my second Jack Jordan novels but this is my favorite so far. I will definitely be looking into his other novels as I wonder, what has he been hiding from me? This novel is definitely top-notch in my world.

 

I was first introduced to Paige, a 42 year-old widow who is drinking her life away since they discovered her daughter’s arm floating in a river ten years ago. Her husband committed suicide a few months ago and now Paige handles each day with a few bottles in her hand. Her mother-in-law checks in on her but otherwise Paige’s life is going downhill. Paige loses whole segments of time when she drinks but when events begin to occur in her life that she has no recognition of doing, Paige begins to think that someone is harassing her. While clearing out her husband’s files, she comes across items that are atypical for her husband. The PI from her daughter’s case fifteen years ago blames Paige’s drinking on these strange events that are occurring in her life but Paige knows that she is not the cause and feels that someone is behind it. As Paige begins her own investigation, I am on edge as I know things are going to get exciting quick. Paige honey, those bottles of booze were safer than what you are about to walk into. Paige investigation gets dark and vile as she meets a man who is so twisted, I mean he was past insane. I loved this book as I wanted something maddening, something that I could shake my head at and it delivered.

 

I received a copy of this novel from NetGalley and JJP in exchange for an honest review.
