    Well, yeah, this was such a good thriller So dark and so twisted Being a huge fan of thriller and mystery books I had to pick this one up and read it and I wasn t disappointed I think the plot is very good, the action is fabulous, even the characters blend perfectly in the action.All the right pieces in the right places Be careful though The book is also huge in controlling alpha males and abused women in relationships Even though the book is focused on the escape of the woman and the child.

    Nope, no, not my thing The characters weren t developed enough for me to remain fully engaged The romance was tiresome yet rushed and trite.I finished it but it felt like work, not fun.No.

    3.5 Stars for J.M Winchester s first thriller, All the Lovely PiecesDrew is on the run from her psychotic, abusive husband, Adam The world thinks she is a murderer and a kidnapper but there is nothing she wouldn t do to keep her son, Michael, safe and away from Adam Having suffered mental, physical and psychological abuse Drew is desperately trying to keep one step ahead of Adam while building some semblance of a normal life for herself and Michael But she knows the only way she can ever truly be safe, is by exposing Adam I had high hopes for this thriller A mother on the run, doing whatever it takes to protect her child A sadistic and ruthless husband who deftly hides his darkness from the world I love a sexy and terrifying antagonist Unfortunately, I felt that the character development here wasn t complete Adam had so much potential I would have enjoyed seeing from his point of view and seeing what made him tick It felt like we only scratched the surface of his story Although the story was told from multiple POVs, the strongest was definitely Drew s I wish I had come to like her but I was never fully invested Michael s chapters were short and thoroughly chilling and creepy I enjoyed the insinuation of a bad seed via genetics despite Drew s efforts to keep the truth from him Overall, the story was twisty but unfortunately felt a bit rushed, surface level and predictable where it mattered Thank you J.M Winchester, Thomas Mercer and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review an arc of this book.

    If you try to drown your sorrowsthey eventually learn how to swim.Drew is on the run Period.She and her nine year old son, Michael, have lived in the dark shadows since almost the day of his birth But this time they ve come upon a small town in Missouri with a highly ironic name Liberty Drew hasn t felt one iota of release since they left Seattle on that fateful day.Adam was suppose to be a haven of strength for Drew when she first met him through her father He recognized her art talent that day when she brought in her portfolio Her prints were to be displayed at the Herman Gallery Adam had a very persuasive personality as the CEO of C2 Technologies Before Drew knew it, she and Adam were married and Drew was expecting their first child.But what Drew wasn t expecting was the drastic change in Adam Possessive to the point of cruel, Adam hardly allowed Drew out of his sight after Michael was born As readers, we will take a front seat witnessing Adam s over the top behavior In a sheer moment of good fortune, Drew and Michael escape from the gated house But Drew will leave behind drifting and uncertain memories of what occured in the last moments in that nurseryand the blood that stained the carpet.J.M Winchester sweeps Drew and her son from one harrowing situation to the next She and Michael have lived in dives and changed their identities They ve managed to stay ahead of their past But it s here in Liberty that Drew begins to let her guard down inch by inch inviting phantoms from the past Phantoms that don t have Drew s best interest in mind.All the Lovely Pieces is relayed through the voices of Drew, Michael, and Catherine Who will be revealed as you set foot in this one Winchester does a fine job of carving out the intensity and the fear residing in the character of Drew Because her strings are so taut, Drew will have a tendency to be sharp edged at times and almost off putting But we ll give our girl a break as the twists and the turns of the story start to surface Sleeping with a box cutter under your pillow makes for some pretty sliced up nightmares come morning.I received a copy of All the Lovely Pieces through NetGalley for an honest review My thanks to J.M Winchester and to Thomas Mercer for the opportunity.

    This is a dark and twisted psychological thriller about a woman, Drew Baker and her son on the run from an abusive, controlling husband And what a monster he is Adam Crenshaw, rich and powerful, the CEO of a tech company he worked his charm on Drew until she fell in love with him and married him But after the wedding he started controlling her movements, what she wore, who she saw and when she became pregnant made her give up her fledgling career as an artist After the baby arrived, he hired a nanny and kept her away from the child until finally one night she escaped with her son, but left a trail of blood behind in the nursery and is scared she will be arrested if found ince then she s changed her name and had to keep one step ahead of him, moving from one town to another whenever she thinks they ve been found She knows it s Michael Adam wants to get back and she ll do whatever she can to keep him hidden Now Drew and nine year old Michael have arrived in a small town of Liberty, Missouri where for the first time they feel welcome in a community and make friends Michael is sick of constantly changing schools and begs to stay in the first one he s ever enjoyed, but Drew knows they may have to run again when Adam hunts them down But she has an ace up her sleeve and has a reason for picking this town that she hopes will help her escape Adam forever.There seem to be a lot of thrillers being published at the moment centred around women in abusive relationships with controlling men but this one is focused on the woman and child who escaped rather than the relationship itself The plot unfolds in three voices, those of Drew and Michael as well as a damaged woman called Catherine who is currently under Adam s spell A dark and twisty tale, the author keeps the tension ramped up high, right up to the dramatic ending 4.5 With thanks to Netgalley and the publisher Thomas and Mercer for an advance copy to read

    Drew Baker and her son, Michael, have been running for nine very long years..always looking over her shoulder for the abusive man she knows will find her and kill her.She married a billionaire and he promised to love and honor Nothing was said about being locked in a room while entertaining the nanny in their bedroom or having to deal with non stop mental, physical, sexual abuse When one beating was enough to land her in a hospital, no one believed that her well known husband had done this to her At the first opportunity, she grabbed her son and ran.All she remembers of the night she ran was a man shot dead and a woman with her throat cut What really happened that night This is an excellent psychological thriller, well written Drew s desperation and terrifying need to save her child is palpable Her husband is one of the most heinous characters I ve ever seen The story is told from several perspectives Drew herself, past and present her son, Michael, 10 years old and perplexed by life with his mother and a woman named Catherine who plays a pivotal part of the plot.Many thanks to the author Thomas Mercer Netgalley for the digital copy of this chilling psychological thriller Read and reviewed voluntarily, the opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

    The blurb for this book states that J.M.Winchester is the alter ego of an author who usually writes happy ever after s but her fascination with the workings of an evil mind compelled her to write this book Her fascination paid off as she has indeed created quite a scary, evil psychological thrillerBased around domestic abuse, parts of the book do have fairly vivid and disturbing descriptions of this, with an added throw in of Oedipus complex and Nanny fixation it makes for a very dark read.Drew is on the run, and has been for 9 years, with her son Michael, she ia running from her evil husband Adam, billionaire, psychopath and violent bully, she never settles, she can never feel free, she can never let her guard downUntil she does.in a small town called Liberty, that she has chosen for a reason, a reason that could just help to put an end to her hell on earth existence once and for allDrew needs to be careful who she trusts though and where she looks for this help, seeking help can equate to danger.An unexpected and unsettling ending s finish this taught, claustrophobic tale that deals with hard hitting issues Character wise, Adam the husband is atrocious, vile and plain evil, Drew is understandably anxiety and angst ridden and Michael, well Michael has 2 sidesWell written with the fear palpable and little wasted words it makes for a grimly enjoyable story with sides very quickly taken and kept to throughout the whole book The author will I think carry on with further forays into this genre 8.5 104.5 5 Stars

    Holy Hades This was one heck of a mind trip I m not sure there is any coming back from this crazy, insane, twisted journey this author just took me on How do you even begin to review a book that has literally held you on the edge of your seat for HOURS, all while feeling like you ve been shaken repeatedly, given a slight reprieve, only to be yanked up and tossed again From the very first page, every word draws a clear and precise picture of uncertainty, fear, and terror as we follow the story of a woman running from her abusive husband Using one brush stroke at a time, this author paints a picture so horrendous it s inconceivable And yet, the story is never unbelievable It is in fact, very believable, which only adds another layer of horror to an already intensely suspenseful book I was never sure how much of what the heroine was experiencing was truth, normal fear anyone might feel, a wild imagination, or paranoia born of insanity Whichever way, there is never a doubt that she believes she has reason to fear and the suspense only builds higher and higher due to being inside her every thought Her mind at times emotionally exhausted me due to her concerns but often than not, frightened me because of what might really be in the dark I feel for the blade under my pillow, hoping it someday won t be used as a weapon against me Having it there terrifies me Being without it isn t an option There are so many frightening moments inside this heroines mind, but to be honest after the 3% mark, I was so consumed by this story that I was unable to pull myself out long enough to highlight the truly horrific thoughts I m telling you, this book is going to suck you in and everything around you will come to a screeching halt Be sure you go into this one blind Stay away from reviews that are going to give details of the story you re about to dive into You should also be prepared for an all nighter if you start this one later in the day and above all, have a support system ready for when you ve completed it You re going to need it.Multi POVSafe For my romance buddies while this has a tiny bit of romance, this is not romanceTriggers view spoiler heavy domestic abuse, on page miscarriage on page suicide thoughts of suicide hide spoiler
