Review: After You Fell by J.S. Lark (Blog Tour)

After You Fell

Creepy, disturbing and genuinely thrilling, this is one page-turner you won’t be able to forget!
As one life ends

Louise’s Lovett’s death was a tragedy.  But questions still swirl about exactly what happened to Louise that day.  Did she fall…or was she pushed?

A new life starts

Helen Matthews’ donor heart saves her life.  But as her new heart beats inside her, Helen feels the pull of its previous owner–despite what everyone is telling her, Helen is certain she has one final message to pass on.

And a dark obsession begins

As the lives of Helen and Louise become ever more entangled, Helen’s obsession gets increasingly out of control.  And the fragile new life she has built begins to fall apart…

My Review

Life hasn’t been easy for Helen Matthews, to say the least. She’s always been sickly, has been diagnosed as bipolar, her boyfriend left her and now she needs a heart transplant. After her surgery, she feels as if someone else is inside her body with her. She’s sure it’s the heart donor. Helen is obsessed on finding out about this person’s life.

She reads through obituaries for people who passed away before her surgery and discovers the heart belonged to Louise Lovett. Louise had a tragic death under suspicious circumstances. Helen feels a connection to Louise and becomes entangled with the family Louise left behind. She’s convinced that Louise left some unfinished business and wants Helen’s help to finish it.

This spellbinding book had me hooked from the first page. The author takes you through Helen’s journey - the ups and the downs of her emotional life. The characters are realistic and I cared about what happened to Helen.

I was captivated by the story. There were some slow-moving spots in the middle, but overall I was engrossed in the book. I couldn’t stop reading until I knew how it would all end up.

There were many twists and turns along the way. The author gave us an ending I was totally unprepared for. An intriguing psychological thriller by a new-to-me author. I’ll be looking for more work by her.
