Book Review: How I Lost You by Jenny Blackhurst

Amazon USA Amazon UK

Review by Suze

Emma Cartwright used to be Susan Webster. She's been released from a psychiatric institute where she spent time because she murdered her twelve-week-old son three years before. Now she has to start over. She lost everything because of what happened and she can't even remember what made her do it. 

When Susan receives a photo of a three-year-old boy with the message that her son is still alive she doesn't know what's real and what isn't any longer. Fortunately she has her best friend Cassie and journalist Nick to stand by her. They start researching her case together to find out if there's a chance that her son isn't dead or if someone is pulling a sick prank...

How I Lost You is a fantastic gripping story about a woman who's lost everything and everyone that ever mattered to her. She's trying to find out why these things happened and it isn't easy to find answers. Bit by bit the truth reveals itself and it's shocking, more shocking than she could have ever imagined. I was hooked from the first sentence and couldn't put this book down until I finished it. I loved the suspense and the puzzle pieces and had to find out what actually happened to Susan and her baby boy.

Jenny Blackhurst knows how to tell a story. She managed to get my attention and didn't let it go anymore. I hardly took any breaks while I was reading, because I wanted to keep going. That's how a good thriller should be in my opinion. I loved that the ending surprised me and it was fitting as well. There were answers and they were unexpected which is always a big plus. If you're looking for a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat I highly recommend How I Lost You.
