Let me introduce verity to you. Are u a fan of Colleen Hoover and don’t know what one of her books to read next? Maybe you have never heard of her, but you’re looking for a great new book to read.
The thrilling book has many unexpected plot twists and touches on very sensitive subjects. It has many powerful emotions throughout the book, pain, happiness, betrayal, and fear but you will fall in love with every word on the page.
It starts with a very tragic, gruesome line as Lowen, our main character witnesses a road incident. A tall, handsome man approaches her to help out. She’s covered in blood, and in a state of shock but after she’s cleaned up and parted ways with the stranger it’s not long until they meet again.
Lowen makes her way to her meeting to get the deal of a lifetime, until Jeremy, the stranger, walks through the door. His wife, Verity, was in a horrific car accident and needs someone to continue her book series, so chooses Lowen.
From there forward, it’s filled with shock, surprise, horror and tears as we learn more about the family and all their tragic events.
The book is filled with fear and romance, and questions and coincidences. You can read a line in this epic book, maybe even a word and get goosebumps all up your arm it is that amazing. The twisted and suspenseful book is hard to put down, as I finished it within two days, it is that interesting.
The amazing author herself, Colleen Hoover, well, fans have nicknamed her, ‘CoHo’. Hoover tends to write romantic, boy meets girl, a tragedy happens with an epic storyline, and it has happy endings.
However, verity is very different for a CoHo book. It is a lot more gruesome and twisted than other books like It ends with us, Confesses and Ugly love. Like I said earlier, the books are more romance and love based, this is more shock and horror.
But who is Colleen Hoover? Colleen Hoover is an author of young adult fiction and romance novels. She published her first novel, Slammed, in January 2012. In December 2012, she published Hopeless, which rose to the top of the New York Times best-seller list.
CoHo was born in Texas, on the 11th of December 1979, and is 42 years old currently but turns 43 this year.
She has 3 children now but has not given up writing. She is currently writing the sequel to her most famous book, It ends with Us, which releases in October, It starts with us. If you want to read my review of ‘It ends with us click here
Now, I’m not a big fan of reading the blurb. Only ever do I read the blurb if I have never heard of the book, or have no idea if it’s my type of book. I feel as though blurbs can be deceiving and put you off a book, even if it’s nothing like the blurb describes.
However, my friend read the Verity blurb when I was there, so I read it too. As I said, it hides the greatness of the book as when you read the blurb on the back, it doesn’t even give you a glimpse of how amazing this book is.
Here is the blurb:
Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, the husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to finish.
Lowen arrives at the Crawford home, ready to sort through years of Verity’s notes and outlines, hoping to find enough material to get her started. What Lowen doesn’t expect to uncover in the chaotic office is an unfinished autobiography Verity never intended for anyone to read. Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity’s recollection of what happened the day her daughter died.
Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents would devastate the already grieving father. But as Lowen’s feelings for Jeremy begin to intensify, she recognizes all the ways she could benefit if he were to read his wife’s words. After all, no matter how devoted Jeremy is to his injured wife, a truth this horrifying would make it impossible for him to continue to love her.
However, as I said this book does not even give us an idea of how great the story is, this is one of the best blurbs I’ve ever read. It gives you enough information to see if you will truly like it and it is enticing, persuading you to keep reading.
Verity is one of the first books with a blurb that has made me interested in a book and want to read it, another perk of how amazing the book is.
To finish off my review, I will continue to rave about how amazing this novel is. It has a great storyline, and great plot twists, it touches many different emotions and feelings and does get you questioning.
Even after finishing Verity, there are many discussions you can join in on, and different opinions and theories. It’s a book that brings many together to discuss it and has a great impact on lives.
Many of Colleen Hoover’s other books have the same effect, with people sharing their opinions on characters, storylines, theories and everything else. For example, ugly love has arguments about whether people like Miles or not, and It ends with Us has the famous argument of “team Atlas or team Ryle”
So I guess verity comes down to one thing.
Are you a team Manuscript or team letter?
Thank you for reading and I hope I have convinced you to read one of my all time favourite books.
