Review for False Step by Victoria Helen Stone

Hardcover, 280 pages
Expected publication: July 1st 2019 by Lake Union Publishing

Stay calm, keep smiling, and watch your step. In this marriage of secrets and lies, nothing is what it seems.

For days, all of Denver, Colorado, has worried over the fate of a missing child, little Tanner Holcomb. Then, a miracle: handsome, athletic Johnny Bradley finds him, frightened but unharmed, on a hiking trail miles from his wealthy family’s mountain home.

In a heartbeat, his rescuer goes from financially strapped fitness trainer to celebrated hero. The heat of the spotlight may prove too much for Johnny’s picture-perfect family, however. His wife, Veronica, despises the pressure of the sudden fame, afraid that secrets and bitter resentments of her marriage may come to light. And she’s willing to do anything to keep them hidden.

But when a shocking revelation exposes an even darker side to Tanner’s disappearance, Veronica realizes that nothing in her life can be trusted. And everything should be feared.

My Thoughts…

If you are looking for a good thriller this is the book for you.  The storyline moved quickly, the plot was easy to follow, and the author did a great job of not giving it away too early.  

 From the very beginning, I knew there was more to the story of Johnny and Veronica.    There were hints and I kept guessing.  I never wanted the story to go the way it does but I couldn’t stop reading until I found out what was going to happen.    

The relationship between Johnny and Veronica was not good.    They were not happily married.   They should not have stayed married yet I did understand why they didn’t separate.    Neither character was very likable.    Johnny just seemed shady while Veronica was a pity party at every turn.   Nothing was right or good with the two of them and unfortunately, they had a child to take care of.     

I did like this book, I loved the storyline.   The characters were a bit of a drag but I’d still recommend picking up a copy of this book.  It was quick and easy to read.   The writing style was easy to follow.   The story moved along quickly.
