Eve had always enjoyed her job as an audiobook narrator, and she excelled as a voice actor while narrating a long-running series. After experiencing some serious personal problems, Eve has decided to focus her time and attention on her young daughter Scarlett. This break is also because the primary author Eve had been narrating for, Phillipa Roberts, has completely disappeared, having never been seen again. Therefore, the best-selling series, and Eve’s work, had come to a halt. However, a missing manuscript for the next book in the series has mysteriously surfaced. The publishers want Eve to narrate this very much anticipated book.
For Eve to take the job, she must leave her daughter for several months, but she’s not worried because she feels that leaving her in the care of her mother will work. However, her ex Hugo has other plans for their daughter, and this proves to be a distraction for Eve. Furthermore, Eve struggles with the context of the manuscript, and this is another source of her problems.
There are other stories being told in this thrilling book by K. L. Slater. We find that someone is being kept captive for a very specific reason, with cruel treatment being carried out. There is also a Phillipa Roberts super-fan, Chad, and the interesting role he plays in the story.
In this multi-layered story, answers begin to be told about the disappearance of the author, the trials that Eve experiences, and some surprising twists along the way. These twists play into Eve searching for answers, and this increases the tension in this exciting read. One thing that made this book such a fabulous read was getting an inside look at what goes on behind audiobook narrating, as well as the ins and outs of a book as it is being published and produced all while an intriguing mystery is being explored. Thank you to K. L. Slater for yet another wonderful read.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
