Couldn’t Put It Down
The Truth Hurts is a domestic thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Poppy meets Drew, a rich, charming man, the night she got fired from her nanny job. Drew seems perfect but comes up with a deal that they don’t talk about their past. Poppy happily accepts but doesn’t realize Drew won’t tell her anything even where he grew up. Poppy knows why she doesn’t want to share her past but why doesn’t Drew?
They met while both were on vacation in Ibiza. When they move back home, weird things start happening to Poppy in the house. Poppy starts to wonder what Drew is hiding. Poppy starts to get concerned, but Poppy loves her new life so doesn’t want to jeopardize it.
The Truth Hurts is a mix of Pretty Woman and Gone Girl. The Truth Hurts is so good. I couldn’t put it down. I really liked Poppy even though she made some very shady decisions. I also enjoyed Poppy’s best friend, Gina since she was usually looking out for Poppy. I wasn’t a big fan of Drew because I was always cautious of what he was hiding but that did not make me like the book any less.
I highly recommend The Truth Hurts to thriller fans.
Thank you Edelweiss and Harper Collins/Harper Perennial for The Truth Hurts.
