He Will Be My Ruin by KA Tucker
The USA TODAY bestselling author of the Ten Tiny Breaths and Burying Water series makes her romantic thriller debut with this heartpounding story of a young woman determined to find justice after her best friend’s death, a story pulsing with the “intense, hot, emotional” (Colleen Hoover) writing that exhilarates her legions of fans.
Twenty-eight-year-old Maggie Sparkes arrives in New York City to pack up what’s left of her best friend’s belongings after a suicide that has left everyone stunned. The police have deemed the evidence conclusive: Celine got into bed, downed a bottle of Xanax and a handle of Maker’s Mark, and never woke up. But when Maggie discovers secrets in the childhood lock box hidden in Celine’s apartment, she begins asking questions. Questions about the man Celine fell in love with. The man she never told anyone about, not even Maggie. The man who Celine herself claimed would be her ruin.
On the hunt for answers that will force the police to reopen the case, Maggie uncovers more than she bargained for about Celine’s private life—and inadvertently puts herself on the radar of a killer who will stop at nothing to keep his crimes undiscovered.
Review by: Tracy
Best friends since childhood Celine and Maggie have been inseparable. Once they got older their lives went in different directions but they still remained the best of friends. So when Celine was found dead of an apparent suicide Maggie knew that it just couldn't be true. As she investigates her best friends death Maggie uncovers more about her friend that she ever knew. She finds information that should be kept secret, the secret a murderer wants to keep hidden.
So I hear that this is the first suspenseful book K.A. Tucker has written, but you couldn't tell that while you were reading. This book offered so many twists, turns and oh my god moments that make suspense novel great. I actually talked to the characters in the book as though they could hear me. Just when I thought I knew who did it, BAM! I was proven wrong. I just didn't want to put this one down.
