Gaslight goes high-tech in USA Today bestselling author Cate Holahan's new standalone thriller in which a family must determine who the real enemy is after a brutal home invasion breaks their trust in each other.
Her public life
Jade Thompson has it all. She’s an up-and-coming social media influencer, and she has a beautiful new home and a successful architect for a fiancé. But there’s trouble behind the scenes. To Greg’s children, his divorce from their mother and his new life can only mean a big mid-life crisis. To Jade, his suburban Connecticut upbringing isn’t an easy match with her Caribbean roots.
Her private life A savage home invasion leaves Greg house-bound with a traumatic brain injury and glued to the live feeds from his ubiquitous security cameras. As the police investigate the crime and Greg’s frustration and rage grows, Jade begins to wonder what he may know about their attackers. And whether they are coming back.
Her secret life As Greg watches Jade’s comings and goings, he becomes convinced that her behavior is suspicious and that she’s hiding a big secret. The more he sees, the more he wonders whether the break-in was really a random burglary. And whether he’s worth more to Jade if he were dead than alive.
My Thoughts…A thriller that I just could not put down is how I would describe Her Three Lives by Cate Holahan. I have read other Cate Holahan books and loved them, so I had high hopes for this book and I was not disappointed. Obviously, this means I highly recommend this book for any thriller fan looking for a book that will keep you entertained for hours.
Now, the book itself. Jade is the second wife-to-be. The first family is not happy about this relationship and is not quiet in their thoughts. The twist is that Greg, the ex-husband and fiancée, had been brutally attacked during a home invasion and is struggling to get back to his life. Jade must find strength to help him get better and keep their relationship strong. Greg goes to extremes to protect Jade and their house and becomes paranoid to the extreme.
I was wondering what Greg would find out, if he could keep Jade safe, would they ever find out who had invaded their house? As the story continued, I kept guessing, kept wondering who did it, and if they would ever be caught. Would Jade be able to hold their relationship together? So many questions, so many answers, so much entertainment.
