Book Review – The One Who Got Away by L. A. Detwiler @0neMoreChapter_ #BookReview #BookBlogger #suspense

Happy Publication Day!!

Yikes!! And double Yikes!! This book scared me. A killer on the loose in an old age nursing home tormenting Adeline Walker with notes. And nobody believed her as she had a touch of dementia sometimes.

My first book by L. A. Detwiler, I was quite taken in by the concept of the story. Fear at a vulnerable age along with health problems that affect the elderly together with a killer targeting them made this a chilling plot arc. I wouldn’t say I connected with Adeline but my sympathies were evoked. I hoped she would get away and unmask the killer.

Secrets of the past slowly revealed themselves as I read her story. Abuse by the staff in the nursing home scared me. Certain sections made it an uncomfortable read. My heart bled for the truly vulnerable. The author kept the suspense going until the last few chapters. The final reveal was quite a shocker.

Overall, it was an thrilling read, especially in the last few chapters.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

“Get out while you can. You’ll die here…”

Adeline Evans has recently moved into a home for the elderly. A safe space, where she can be cared for.

When she begins to receive cryptic and threatening notes, she is certain that someone is out to get her.

But the residents are warned against listening to a woman who is losing her memory. It would seem Adeline is tormented by the secrets in her past, and that the menace is all in her mind.

Until danger comes down the corridor and starts knocking in the night…

Publication Date: February 2020
