Pretend She’s Here by Luanne Rice
“Emily Lonergan’s best friend died last year.
And Emily hasn’t stopped grieving. Lizzie Porter was lively, loud, and fun — Emily’s better half. Emily can’t accept that she’s gone.
When Lizzie’s parents and her sister come back to town to visit, Emily’s heartened to see them. The Porters understand her pain. They miss Lizzie desperately, too.
Desperately enough to do something crazy.
Suddenly, Emily’s life is hurtling toward a very dark place — and she’s not sure she’ll ever be able to return to what she once knew was real.
From New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice comes a breathless, unputdownable story of suspense, secrets — and the strength that love gives us to survive even the most shocking of circumstances.” ~ Description from Goodreads
This book was my first Goodreads win of the year! WOOT WOOT! I was super excited to read this and flew through it. Here are my thoughts….
I enjoyed this book. I was an engaging and quick read for me. I loved the characters in this story. I liked the plot… A lot. I did feel like there could have been a bit more suspense. I might be wrong in saying this but I also feel like the abuse aspect could have been more…. There wasn’t anything “shocking” in this novel for me. I did like the ending……
I don’t have much to say about this book really…. I did give it a 3 out of 5 stars. Like I said, it wasn’t bad, but I was expecting A LOT more from it.
