In the eye of the storm…
Living on the streets with her destitute mother, selling knickknacks and trinkets just to survive, Sasha Porter dreams of someday having a normal life, with a real house and family. But she never dreamed a devastating tragedy would bring her those very things; on a stormy night by a rain-spattered highway, a speeding car veers out of control, striking and killing her mother and badly injuring Sasha.
…is anywhere truly safe?
In the hospital, Sasha is whisked off to a fancy private suite at the request of a wealthy Mrs. Jordan March, a complete stranger who keeps watch by Sasha’s bedside and insists she come live at her family’s sprawling mansion. Sasha soon learns Mrs. March never recovered from the loss of her daughter Alena, and with nowhere else to go, Sasha agrees to use Alena’s room, sleep in her bed, and wear her clothes. But someone will make sure that Sasha never takes Alena’s place: a jealous older sister dead set on making Sasha’s life a living hell.
I absolutely adored it!
I literally couldn’t put it down. The novel kept me wanting to read more and that is what I LOVE about certain books. It had a really strong plot line with lots of twists and turns that keep a strong grip on your interest. The novel also has a surprising turn of events.
There is also a lot of hostility between some of the members of the March family, that makes you wonder what secrets the family holds and the way they act towards each other makes it seem like something else is going on behind closed doors.
Hopefully all will be revealed in the second book Cloudburst. This is definitely on my rereads list and I can’t wait to read the second installment.
