Hush: A Novel by Kate White

(Thank you to the publisher and TLC Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book!)
about book:

Four months after their separation, marketing consultant Lake Warren faces a tough legal battle with her husband, Jack, for custody of their two kids. Though the timing couldn’t be worse, she finds herself responding to the flirtations of Dr. Mark Keaton, her handsome colleague at the Advanced Fertility Center. But the morning after their one-night stand, Lake discovers Keaton with his throat slashed.

Afraid of losing her children forever, Lake lies to the police—and begins searching for the truth on her own before she can be charged with the heinous crime. She starts getting hostile treatment from her coworkers, and strange clues start appearing, quite literally, on her doorstep. Soon Lake is pulled dangerously close to the very dark secrets surrounding the slain man and the clinic where they worked. And suddenly the police are not the only ones hunting Lake Warren.

my  thoughts:

A mystery thriller at its best!  Hush was my first Kate White novel and let me just say how much I loved it - TONS!  This book was an absolute treat to read.  From the beginning I found myself easily caught up in Lake's world of divorce, custody battles, work, dating/sex after marriage, and murder.  Yep, murder!  Lake winds up mixing business with pleasure only to wake up to a never-ending nightmare involving her dead client/one night stand - the horror!! 

As the murder makes headline news, Lake tries to distance herself from it by omitting where she was the night he was killed.  Except, strange things begin to happen and soon Lake is starting to wonder who she can really trust.  And once the murderer is revealed - talk about SHOCKER!  Hush is a terrific page-turner that will keep you reading late into the night.  I absolutely enjoyed the twists and turns, along with the red herrings that threw me off the scent of predicting who the killer was.  This whodunit was ace!  It had drama, mystery, suspense, danger, and so much more.  Kate White has written a story that I would most definitely recommend to fans of her works and to fans of mystery thrillers - you will LOVE this book!

I remember reading this book a few years ago, when it was released with a different cover. I don't remember anything about it now, but I gave it 5 stars and said it was a great suspense! Lol. I'm glad you enjoyed it, Nadia. I love a good suspense novel!

Brandie, me too! I am loving suspense novels lately - they are my go-to for reading slumps. This book was terrific, so I can see why you gave it 5 stars :) I'm glad you enjoyed it, too!

This sounds super fun -- the kind of stuff I love taking to the beach in the summer. Will have to grab it!

Nadia said...

Audra, it really was. Definitely check it out! Summer beach reads tend to be the funnest and easiest books to digest - they are perfect for sun and sand :)

I always enjoy reading late into the night to find out what happens in a book, but I definitely don't enjoy the book hangover the next day. LOL

Thanks for being a part of the tour!
