Deliver Me

by Karen Cole

 

 

This book was so interesting! I don’t think I’ve ever read a book with this story line before. Abby isn’t feeling well and goes to the doctor. She finds out she is pregnant but that is impossible there is no way that could have happened. Then she starts thinking about a party she went to several months ago. She learns something horrible and unthinkable happened and the evil person that did this is not going to go away. He torments her and doesn’t leave her alone. He wants the baby and Abby. She is scared for herself and the baby and can’t let her guard down. This was such a fast paced non stop read. I didn’t guess who the perpetrator was till it was revealed. I love when I get ahold of a book that doesn’t make it easy to guess. I will say this book was hard at times and not for everyone. Usually I don’t read books that deal with this topic but I decided to go out of my comfort zone. This book deals with rape and the aftermath taking it one step further and having to deal with the torment for months afterwards because he won’t let her go. I can’t even imagine having to live through something like what happens in this book. The scary thing is I’m sure it does happen and that just makes it that much scarier of a book to read!  I was very surprised to find out this was Karen Cole’s first novel. She really delivered an intense thriller with Deliver Me, and I can’t wait to see what she comes out with next!

About the book: THE NIGHT SHE DOESN’T REMEMBER WILL BE THE ONE SHE CAN’T FORGET

When Abby’s doctor tells her she’s two months pregnant she doesn’t believe him. She can’t be – she hasn’t had sex for over a year. But to her astonishment and dismay, multiple tests confirm it’s true.

Desperately searching for an explanation, Abby recalls New Year’s Day – the terrible hangover, the hole in her memory where the night before should have been and the inexplicable sense of unease – and realises that this baby must have been conceived at her best friend Danny’s NYE party.

Horrified that someone would have taken advantage of her intoxicated state, Abby enlists the help of Danny to find out which of the party guests assaulted her. But when she starts to receive anonymous messages it seems that while she has been looking into the father of her baby, someone has been watching her…
