She grows up in the family loved by her parents and brother ~~ till a Texan reporter contacts her to share with her the mystery of her past...secrets her family has been keeping from her for 20 ears.
If you're in the mood for mind games, this book is it. It is much more of a psychological thriller with a couple of murders thrown in it to keep the suspense alive. And the ending is unpredictable
A real page-turner. Wow, the twists keep you guessing all the way to the last page.
This book keeps you on edge till the last page.
Melanie had lost all memory of her life before the adoption, and now someone wants to give it back. Even if it includes the darkest nightmare the Stokes family ever faced: the murder of their first daughter in Texas. As Melanie pursues every lead, chases every shadow in the search for her real identity, two seemingly unrelated events from twenty years ago will come together in a dangerous explosion of truth. And with her very life at stake, Melanie will fear that the family she loves the most may be the people she should trust the least.
