C.A. King is a magical storyteller. I just can’t get enough of her stories and every time that I see a new release of hers on my feed or a coming soon it is an auto-buy. No questions asked, no need to read what it is even about. Truly Unfortunate is no exception to the rule. I was blown away when I got a peek at this cover for the first time. I knew the world that King was going to take me to was going to be one that I wouldn’t want to leave.
The story behind that gorgeous eye-catching cover is quite possibly one of my favorite novels that I have read by King. This is one twist psychological thriller. I know for sure that I didn’t want to put it down, and I was thrilled to learn that there will be more to come in this series. When King builds a world for the reader, it is from the ground up and down to the very way that you would think the atmosphere feels and smells. I love how I feel transformed into the place the character is is when I am reading and in Truly Unfortunate, this was once again the case.
I am struggling with how to share things about the plot of this book and not spoil it too much for the reader. There is a few things though, expect the unexpected. Go into this novel with an open mind and be ready to learn a few things, perhaps about yourself.
Truly has no memories of her youth, her formative years. There is something missing and it has to be for a good reason is all the doctors can think. All of a sudden there are a bunch of unexplained deaths occurring around her, and its people that she knows!
A local cop on the case,Jeff, is convinced that there is more to the story than meets the eye. He is determined to get to the bottom of it and make the case just like he has always dreamed of doing. But is this all in his imagination?
Just when you think you know what is going on there is a few twist that you do not see coming, ones that will make you read this well past your bedtime! I know I did, and I still am left hanging wondering so many questions. I can’t hardly wait for book two! Thank you so much for the great read CA King!
