IF YOU SEE HER picks up right where IF YOU HEAR HER left off, with Hope in the hospital accused of beating her best friend, Law, nearly to death with a baseball bat, and then attempting to kill herself. No one believes she is innocent.
Remy Jennings knows the situation doesn't feel right, but the evidence points to Hope's guilt. As he digs deeper into her past, he discovers this isn't her first brush with violence. But when he talks with her ex-husband, more questions are raised. Is she the mentally unstable woman he claims she is?
How can Hope prove she is a victim and not the perpetrator?
IF YOU SEE HER was an exciting continuation of Shiloh Walker's Ash trilogy. We still don't know who the killer is for IF YOU HEAR HER, but our suspects are adding up. Though in IF YOU SEE HER the focus is mostly on Hope and who is terrorizing her.
Hope is a very private person, with good reason. Her ex-husband abused her, but because of his position in society, many turned a blind eye, and chose not to believe her. She took drastic measures to finally escape her marriage. But, it seems he's not done with her yet.
Now we have not one bad guy, but TWO. There is the obvious possessive anger from Hope's ex-husband, Joe. But there is also the more subtle yearnings of the killer we were introduced to in IF YOU HEAR HER.
I enjoyed Remy and Hope's new found relationship and their chemistry was fantastic. Hope was struggling to find her independence and I loved how Remy supported her, even when all he wanted to do was shelter her and protect her.
I loved all of the interactions between Ezra, Lena, and Law, who we met in IF YOU HEAR HER. The continued mystery who the real killer is frustrating, in a good way, because by the end of IF YOU SEE HER I was still wondering WHO he was. I had ideas, but still didn't know.
A FACE IN THE MIRROR
Hope Carson may not look like a survivor, but she has escaped an abusive ex-husband and recovered from a vicious assault. Now she endures the painful memories and suspicious rumors surrounding her involvement in the attack. Her ex is a cop, so the last people she trusts are law enforcement officials-and she certainly doesn't trust how the local DA makes her feel inside.
Remy Jennings should know better. He has no business falling for a woman who he suspects may have a deeply troubled mind. And even if he did make a move, she'd bolt like a frightened rabbit. But how can he deny a burning desire that threatens to consume him? As Hope's past catches up with her in the worst way, Remy is determined to break through her defenses, earn her trust, and keep her safe in his arms-before it's too late.
