The Silent Girl – ARC Book Review

The Silent Girl: An absolutely gripping mystery thriller full of suspense by [Kelly Heard]

I wake in a bed, with a stranger leaning over me. She asks my name and I realise I don’t know what it is. I don’t know who I am or why I’m here…

I’m grateful to the people who rescued me. To the doctors, too, who brought me back from the brink of death.

But I see the suspicion in their eyes.

They don’t believe me when I say I don’t remember who I am. They are unsure if I can be trusted.

Am I the innocent victim? Or guilty of a terrible crime?

No one has reported me missing or come looking for me. But today, a bouquet of blood-red roses has been delivered to my room.

Am I in danger? Or is someone trying to help me?

Searching for anything in this town that might seem familiar, I’m cornered by a woman with wild eyes who calls me I name I don’t know. She tells me my brother is in danger and only I can save him.

But how do I know if I can trust her, if I can’t even trust myself?

I can say only one word–WOW!!! This book gripped me so hard that I simply couldn’t put the book down!! What will happen if you wake up all of a sudden and have no clue of who you really are and how you ended up in the hospital? Or the fact that you may be an innocent victim of a crime or maybe guilty of a crime you committed?

A woman wakes up in the hospital with no memory of how she ended up in the hospital. All she thinks is that her name is Sophie. After being discharged from the hospital, Sophie then finds a job in an abandoned house with Nathaniel as a caretaker. All Sophie remembered is that she had a brother named Miles who looked after her and she was determined to find out what happened to the brother. Meanwhile, the Detective Selena who is investigating her case is suspicious about her and turns out that she was Nathaniel’s ex.

As I have mentioned earlier, this book is an unputdownable filled with action packed twists and turns and I simply couldn’t wait to find what is going to happen in the end! Is the narrator’s name really Sophie or is it something else? Or is she running away from a crime or simply a victim of a crime? I was so curious to find out that I simple couldn’t put the book down and wait till the end! The ending left me breathless and I felt like I was watching a movie that I couldn’t stop to watch! So good and unputdownable that will take your breath away!!

A fast paced thriller filled with twists and turns that will keep you hooked into the story and keep you up all night–worth five stars!
