“It all looked so ordinary, a normal evening with no one missing. But none of them was normal.”
A year ago, Charlie’s life seemed to be following a plan: she had a beautiful house, a lovable dog and an upcoming wedding. But she felt trapped. A few months before the big day, ignoring the warnings from her family, she abandoned her life and fled to the other side of the world in a bid for freedom.
But when her mother unexpectedly falls ill, Charlie has to cut her trip short. She flies home, but by the time she gets to the hospital, it’s too late.
Her mother is gone, but she’s left a mystery behind. Why did she buy a canal boat, and where did the money for it come from? As Charlie attempts to work through her grief and pick up the pieces of her life, she follows the threads of her mother’s secret past – but has she missed her chance to learn the truth?
You Never Told Me was my first thriller in quite a long time and to my surprise I enjoyed it thoroughly! The book, after the synopsis makes you develop an idea that the story about a woman named Charlie who reveal the truth about her mother. However, the story is much beyond that.
The plot of the book was a MASTERPIECE in itself. There were no plot holes, the pacing was quite well managed as well! It did not depend on anything else to impact the reader. The plot was powerful to grab the attention of the reader as well as made me invest my time and effort into the book.
The characters were quite round and were not flat. Initially, Charlie’s character seemed quite immature however, later on, the perspective that is provided by the author really makes us think about how we all act irrationally and it does not define us as a person. The other characters characters were quite interesting as well. I liked the character developments throughout. It was quite smooth and well paced as well.
“All she could do keep an eye on the level. And hope didn’t sink.”
The writing style of Sarah Jasmon really surprised me! I mean I did not have much high expectations as I am not a big fan of thrillers. But Sarah Jasmon really blew me away! I really admire her writing! And I can’t wait to see more growth in her writing style now!
