Center of Gravity - Book Review
I'm not even sure where to start with this book. I loved it so much!! I started reading it early evening last night and could not put it down until I was finished. I normally don't like suspenseful or thriller type books but this was an exception. It was so very good. I was on edge most of the book and my heart was pounding so fast. A few times I just wanted to yell at the characters in the book to warn them what was happening. I sometimes get a tad bit too involved when I'm reading a good book.
The story line is excellent. All the characters are well described and so real. The story is told by several of the characters point of view as it goes along. Thankfully the author puts the name of the person so you know when it's switching over so you don't get confused. I think that's one of the reasons I really liked this book was the way you get so many angles of the story.
So, the book is about this woman Ava. She has this picture perfect marriage and family but then she discovers her husband Mitchell is nothing like she thought. He's hiding several things from his past. He all of the sudden becomes very controlling, jealous, and violent and decides to take their 2 boys and file for divorce. He does many things to try to damage her reputation and keep the boys away from her. Crazy things! She gets help from a new attorney in town and tries to get her boys back. A mother will do anything to protect her kids and she finds her courage to fight back but he always seems to be one step ahead of her.
I don't want to tell you anymore because you really need to read it! A few times the controlling and jealousy of her husband Mitchell reminded me of the movie Sleeping With the Enemy. It had that creepiness and on edge feeling. You just never know what is coming next.
Center of Gravity can be found on Amazon. It will be released July 14th. I definitely suggest you put it on your summer reading list! Then make sure you block off a few hours of nothing else so you can just enjoy the book. Have your snacks and a beverage close by so you don't have to get up. :)
