But her perfect life turns into a nightmare overnight when a mysterious caller suddenly threatens to reveal secrets from her past she thought she had left behind forever.

After all, she has already sacrificed so much, and perfect lives don’t come cheap. But Marcia has a hunch her caller wants more than money from her. He wants to hurt and humiliate her. But why? As police investigate a brutal murder in a wealthy London neighborhood, they untangle a web of lies, violence, sex and jealousy surrounding Marcia Bailey and the group of wealthy and powerful men who have secrets of their own to keep.
Mercy has returned to her hometown of Cartleigh, New York after twenty years. The lakeside community is the perfect location for Yakim Zeldovich, her Russian billionaire employer’s state of the art manufacturing facility. Acting as a consultant for Zeldovich, she’s on an undercover mission, not as an angel of mercy, but one of mischief, deceit and torture. Her ultimate goal is to ruin Cartleigh because of a horrible trauma she suffered in high school. The one responsible for her wrath is Colton Hahn, Cartleigh’s beloved mayor, and the object of her retaliation. The town’s golden boy, who she once adored as an impressionable teenager, brutally raped her and left her for dead at seventeen.
It hurts my heart to give a book a negative review, which is why I am so choosy when it comes to accepting or requesting books to read. When The Need presented itself, I was thrilled. The book is gorgeous and the blurb on the back practically screams "READ ME!", so imagine my disappointment when I started reading it, to find out that not only is it painfully slow, it also doesn't make much sense!
"Look" beyond the genre classification, and you will find a brilliant character study of a woman slowly losing her mind!
I LOVE this cover!!! So I'm thrilled to share it with you guys! Sketch is an upcoming YA Psycological Thriller by Didi Oviatt. I also have a sneak peek for you, so be sure to read on!
