Are you ready to stay up all night? Rebecca meets Gone Girl in this shocking, unpredictable thriller with a twist that will leave you reeling . . . The No.1 bestseller and TikTok sensation from the author of It Ends With Us

Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to finish.

Lowen arrives at the Crawford home, ready to sort through years of Verity’s notes and outlines, hoping to find enough material to get her started. What Lowen doesn’t expect to uncover in the chaotic office is an unfinished autobiography Verity never intended for anyone to read. Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity’s recollection of the night their family was forever altered.

Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents would devastate the already-grieving father. But as Lowen’s feelings for Jeremy begin to intensify, she recognizes all the ways she could benefit if he were to read his wife’s words. After all, no matter how devoted Jeremy is to his injured wife, a truth this horrifying would make it impossible for him to continue loving her . . .

    First page in and I knew I was going to have a hard time putting it down. I had absolutely no idea what that book was going to be like, I decided I wasn’t going to read anything about it, not even the resume.

    This was mindblowing ! So shocking and disturbing, its been a good while since a book has had that effect on me.

    It was exhilarating!
    A novel filled with so much suspense!
    I was on the edge of my seat so many time! I just had to get to the end!!!

  4. The Bookish Attitude

    Having heard that Colleen Hoover delivers some very emotional works, when I needed to use the letter V for a book challenge, this one seemed like as good a place as any to start.

    Honeslty. I have no words.

    In the beggining I was sceptical. Mainly because Colleen used a word that meant an alcoholic beverage to describe someone eyes matching their tie without actually giving the colour. When I read that my hope for her hype plumted.

    This isn’t a romance, and when I realised it wasn’t, my expectation changed.

    When that happened, I was able to sink myself in this book. My emotions ran high. There were times I was disgusted in what had happened, there were moments I swooned, and moments I had to put my kindle down. Time when I thought I knew exactly how it would end.

    I will neither confirm or deny my suspicions, though I wasn’t entirely off the mark. That in itself shows that reading Colleen Hoover was worth it. That this book was worth taking the time for.

    HOLY. FREAKING. HANNAH. Five stars and some fireworks for good measure. Hoover is a master at writing an evil antagonist and nailing character voice.

    I hadn’t had the opportunity to read Verity until this past weekend when some Twitter friends and I agreed to read it together so we could talk about it after (and boy do I need to talk about this after!) This book was so dark and disturbing!

    The first line was top-notch. Like… what an opener! It immediately draws you in and doesn’t let go. It puts you straight into the action and leaves your mind spinning, in this case after just fourteen words. Mind. Blown.

    Verity is an example of a story within a story. The main character, Lowen, is an author—and don’t let that cliché fool you. This book was written astonishingly well. Lowen is hired as a co-writer to a hugely famous author, Verity Crawford, who is incapacitated and cannot finish out the remaining three of her six book deal. Lowen must get inside Verity’s head somehow so she can write the last three books as closely to her writing style and authorial voice as possible. To do that, she’s invited to stay at Verity’s house with her husband, Jeremy, and son, Crew, to go through her office and study her notes.

    But Lowen finds a manuscript… an autobiography of sorts… and she learns much more about Verity than she ever thought she would—or wanted to. It’s a deeply personal and intimate account of big life events and the things that led up to them. And the more Lowen reads, the more she’s disturbed. And what’s more, she starts experiencing really creepy things around the house that make her question not only Verity’s sanity, but also her own. By the end of the story, I was blown away.

    The twists at the end of this book are incredible!

    By the time I was finished reading, my jaw was dropped, my eyes were bulging out of their sockets, and I just wanted to talk about it, but it was 2am! I now know what everyone else was talking about when they said this book is bone-chilling and dark. I highlighted so many lines that stuck out, and there’s one in particular in Verity’s biography that will stay with me (but I’m not going to tell you what it is!)

    The character voice was strong, the line-level writing was superb, and I was thoroughly disquieted (and I mean that in the best possible way, because I love dark thrillers!)

    The ending will have you questioning everything, and I absolutely love books that do that. Stories that make me think about them long after I’ve read the last word on the page.

    I absolutely recommend this book to any fellow dark and disturbing thriller lovers. But be forewarned: when I say it’s disturbing… I mean it’s disturbing, especially as a mother. And as someone who lived with a sociopath for almost a decade, there are some eerily familiar feelings I experienced while reading.

    Colleen Hoover is a new-to-me author, and I will not hesitate to read more of her books.

    I still don’t know how to think… it was delectable learning about Verity and going through that journey.. but still not knowing what to believe. This tale will stay with me for a very, very long time.

    Tight and tense, Verity is a thriller that really delivers. The author Colleen Hoover did a great job in writing the characters Lowen, Jeremy and Verity who you feel you’ve met before, but then tips everything you think you know on its head. From the outset, the story sets a cracking pace, and I had to put it down a few times just to take a breath – but how great that an author can do that! Hard to say much more without giving away spoilers, but if you are a fan of thrillers then Verity doesn’t disappoint.

  8. Tifa

    It was a quick read, didn’t live up the hype for me. I feel like it lacked depth. Still a good book just wouldn’t recommend a friend to read.

  9. Amazon Customer

    Easy read, great thriller. Loved it !

    Lowen is a struggling writer on the verge of bankruptcy when she is offered the opportunity that could change her luck. Successful author, Verity Crawford, is unable to finish her bestselling series due to medical reasons, and her publishing team want to bring Lowen onboard to finish the series on Verity’s behalf. When Lowen gains access to Verity’s office to research how the rest of the books were planned to end, she starts to discover the author’s dark past…

    What I loved most about this book was how cleverly it is written. There were so many layers of mystery and deception, it was difficult for the reader to discern what was really going on (which I love in a mystery!). Colleen Hoover creates an air of suspense that lasts through the whole book. I liked how it was clear that more was going on than met the eye, without giving away too much. I was wishing I could read at twice the pace so I could find out what happened quicker!

    Given the narrative revolved around two authors, reading this felt somewhat like a glimpse behind the curtain into the writing process (which again I found so clever!). My only criticism is that I felt slightly let down by the ending. It was a little rushed and tied all the ends up a bit too cleanly for my liking, but the rest of the book was so great it made up for it.

    I ended up purchasing Verity by Colleen Hoover because it was chosen for my book club (less of a club, more of a bunch of nurses who love to read). This is my honest review of the book after reading it (don’t worry, there are NO spoilers).

    The genre is like a spicy mystery (it gets naughty, but not in a fun way since the undertones are dark. If you like romance novels, this isn’t THAT kind of spicy). The writing is well done and kept me interested, maybe not HOOKED but that’s rare for me. It is mainly written from the perspective of the female lead and details her experience with finding love in the midst of another family’s mysterious tragedies.

    This is one of those books where there are no true heros. You don’t fall in love with any specific character, no one is truly “good”. If you like a feel-good type of book, this isn’t going to be it. It is dark and twisted, with certain details shocking or maybe even scary.

    The book twists and surprises you in a way that you won’t expect. I usually don’t like mysteries because the endings are either too predictable or so unpredictable that it isn’t believable and creates plot holes. The ending to this book was something I did NOT expect, but something that I could believe. You are left to decide how you want to interpret it, which makes this GREAT for book club discussions. I finished this book, put it down, and had to take a minute to just think and sort my thoughts/feelings.

    If you like a mystery with a little bit of spice, dark undertones, good twists, and thought-provoking open-ended conclusions, I recommend reading this book! I wouldn’t say this was my favorite book of all time, but it definitely was a good, worthy read.

    Hope this helps!
