After You Fell by Jane Lark #Review #Mystery #BlogTour

Creepy, disturbing and genuinely thrilling, this is one page-turner you won’t be able to forget!

As one life ends
Louise’s Lovett’s death was a tragedy.  But questions still swirl about exactly what happened to Louise that day.  Did she fall…or was she pushed?

A new life starts
Helen Matthews’ donor heart saves her life.  But as her new heart beats inside her, Helen feels the pull of its previous owner–despite what everyone is telling her, Helen is certain she has one final message to pass on.

And a dark obsession begins
As the lives of Helen and Louise become ever more entangled, Helen’s obsession gets increasingly out of control.  And the fragile new life she has built begins to fall apart…

My Review:

This is definitely a very different, enthralling read that I really didn’t want to put down.

Helen Matthews has been ill for all her life but a heart transplant gives her the chance to life a fuller, more active life filled with possibilities. Helen has always believed she has psychic talents, being able to see the aura of people and sense spirits around her, but she has learnt not to share these because others do not understand and assume it is because she’s bipolar. However, she becomes somewhat obsessed with just who her donor was, feeling that the heart is trying to get Helen to investigate just what happened to them. She starts by checking out obituaries, moves on to checking out the family of the person she believes is her donor and discovers there are questions regarding just how she came to fall. Did she jump or was she pushed?

The story is an eclectic mix of detective, mystery, romance, paranormal and family dynamics, mixed into an absorbing read. There are plenty of twists and turns as the story progresses, but the biggest ones are at the end – and they certainly took my breath away! What a surprising, unique story, with great characters, many suppositions and more than its share of mystery and suspense. It certainly is a story that lives up to its tag, being “creepy, disturbing and genuinely thrilling”!

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and finding it a fascinating read.
