If She Dies – Erik Therme

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a fair review thanks to Erik.

Nine months ago, Tess’s five-year-old daughter was killed in a car accident. The driver, Brady Becker, was sentenced to two years in prison. It didn’t make Tess’s pain go away.

Brady also has a daughter: A twelve-year-old named Eve who walks to Chandler Middle School every day. Tess knows this because she’s been watching Eve for the last three weeks. It isn’t fair that Brady’s daughter gets to live, while Tess’s daughter does not.

When Eve goes missing, all eyes turn to Tess, who doesn’t have an alibi. But Tess isn’t guilty.

This is a well written thriller that deals with topics such as; grief, domestic abuse, mental health, guilt and relationships. As a reader, I found that when I was ready to put the book down for the evening, there were twists that made me want to continue reading – I read over 80% in one sitting.  

The entire novel is written cleverly from the perspective of Tess, with a detailed view of her grief. For such an emotional book with a complex storyline, this book is surprisingly easy to read.  

Rating 5/5
