The Gift by Louise Jensen

MoMo Book Diary highly recommends this gripping psychological thriller. It is much more than a 5 star read and will be recommending this novel to EVERYONE!

I knew I would love this book from the minute I saw the cover… and was lucky enough to be given an advanced copy to read and review prior to publication.

Once I started reading I didn’t want to put it down – it got under my skin. I finally slept when the kindle needed charging. Whilst reading I had an idea of the way the story was heading, but I was wrong more than once.

This book has you gripped from page one and doesn’t let you go until the final page.

Louise Jensen had me completely absorbed in this story with characters that you can’t help but feel real empathy for – at times I felt an irrational fear for Jenna’s safety. I have never found myself worrying over a character as much as I did for her.

More than once I had to stop reading for a moment to calm down… its gripping beyond belief.

Whilst this is an addictive psychological thriller I was fascinated by the authors use of cellular memory theory as a topic. I will be reading more on this subject. Something I have never read anywhere else – well done Louise Jensen for bringing such a new, and thought provoking twist to your readers.

Sincere thanks to Louise Jensen, Bookouture and NetGalley for the chance to read and review this book prior to publication. This review is completely my own unbiased and voluntary opinion.

Synopsis

The perfect daughter. The perfect girlfriend. The perfect murder?

Jenna is given another shot at life when she receives a donor heart from a girl called Callie. Eternally grateful to Callie and her family, Jenna gets closer to them, but she soon discovers that Callie’s perfect family is hiding some very dark secrets …

Callie’s parents are grieving, yet Jenna knows they’re only telling her half the story. Where is Callie’s sister Sophie? She’s been ‘abroad’ since her sister’s death but something about her absence doesn’t add up. And when Jenna meets Callie’s boyfriend Nathan, she makes a shocking discovery.

Jenna knows that Callie didn’t die in an accident. But how did she die? Jenna is determined to discover the truth but it could cost her everything; her loved ones, her sanity, even her life.
