“I have learned three rules in my life: 1.) The most dangerous people in the world are not always strangers. 2.) The scariest things imaginable are not those that can kill you, but those you can live through. And probably the most prominent: 3.) The most horrible possibility is not what could happen to you, but what you could become – I became a killer.” ~Hope Wellman
Hope Wellman has been haunted for years by her years of abusive. Abuse that was at the hands of her step-fathers brother, Lucas Wellerman.
The moment the funeral is over Hope needs to get on with her life. She needs to put the past behind her, but how?? She is plagued by nightmares and daily reminders, then another victim comes into the picture. Does Hope tell what happened to her or keep it a secret ?
When her childhood friend comes clean and tells everyone she is pregnant with Lucas's baby, Hope is extremely worried and troubled. With everyday that passes after Lucas death more things come about. Now some family members are looking for stolen money, they seem to think kidnapping and blackmailing Hope will bring it to light. . . . . . Will Hope tell what really happened to her ??
This is a true page turner at its best ! Drake keep me guessing till the end. I felt so bad for Hope, she seemed trapped in her nightmares with no one to help her. Great read with this little warning, don't start reading it late at night! Why ? because you will have to finish it before you can put it down ! ! Its full of family secrets and some scary skeletons in the closet.
