I have three months to write the last book of my life. Three months to confess the details of that day, and how it changed everything for me.
My name is Helena Ross. I’ve written fifteen romance novels, ten of which have become international bestsellers. But this one isn’t a romance. This novel holds only the truth, which I have run away from for four years. The truth, which I have hidden from the police, from my loved ones, from the world.
It’s my confession.
My Review of The Ghostwriter by Alessandra Torre
Turn the page. Turn the page. Turn the page. This was my brain while absorbing the words in The Ghostwriter, Alessandra Torre’s newest release. I was struck by how invested I became in Helena’s world, stuck somewhere between the past and the present, and how quickly I wanted to know more about her life and what brought her to this point.
There are truly only a few characters in the present and the way that Alessandra wrote them is phenomenal, how she can describe these complex characters and make them feel real and like they live down the street is both comforting and unsettling. The way they interacted with Helena to draw her out and bring the story to life was brilliant and made this a book I could not put down.
I won’t give any spoilers, but I will tell you that this is not a romance and while it isn’t a romance, it is all Alessandra Torre. Her writing style, the way she can bring her words to life and have them grip your soul, squeeze your heart, and leave you breathless is remarkable. This is a unique and truly unforgettable story that will have you hooked from the first page. The Ghostwriter is my favorite read of 2017 and I would gladly give it 10 stars.
