VERITY BOOK REVIEW

Booking it With Emma

February 22, 2022

Verity is a thriller novel by Colleen Hoover, this book follows Lowen Ashleigh who ends up becoming a ghostwriter for Verity Crawford who was in an accident causing her to be paralyzed. Verity’s husband Jeremy Crawford finds her after his wife’s wishes, Lowen doesn’t want anyone to find out who she is so she writes under the name of Laura Chase.

 Lowen moves in with the Crawfords, finding out the Crawfords lost their twin daughters Harper and Chastin in tragic incidents. Lowen finds this manuscript that Verity was working on and it’s filled with tons of twisted secrets about their lives, from Verity’s point of view, Lowen decides to hide the manuscript from Jeremy. 

Throughout the book Lowen catches feelings for Jeremy and she begins to see Verity sometimes moving around the house. She can’t tell Jeremy cause he’ll think she’s crazy considering she’s paralyzed. Lowen struggles writing the book she’s supposed to be writing due to her mind focusing on the manuscript and how she’s keeping it from Jeremy. 

This book genuinely will make you rethink everything; the plot twists were crazy and it was the first book I read by Colleen. This book really got me into reading her other books and now she’s my favorite author to date. Verity will quite literally have you gripping your seat in fear and anticipation. 

Colleen’s opening sentences are always great, the one for this book was “I hear the crack of his skull before the spattering of blood reaches me.” Her opening sentences always get me hooked into the book no matter what it’s about.

Please read the trigger warnings of this book before you read it though, the biggest one is death so take your own precautions. If you checked out this book leave a comment below to tell me what you thought of it!
