Never Knowing by Chevy Stevens

From the acclaimed author of STILL MISSING comes a psychological thriller about one woman’s search into her past and the deadly truth she uncovers. All her life, Sara Gallagher has wondered about her birth parents. As an adopted child with two sisters who were born naturally to her parents, Sara’s home life was not ideal. The question of why she was given up for adoption has always haunted her. Finally, she is ready to take steps and find closure.

But some questions are better left unanswered.After months of research, Sara locates her birth mother—only to be met with horror and rejection. Then she discovers the devastating truth: her mother was the only victim ever to escape a killer who has been hunting women every summer for decades. But Sara soon realizes the only thing worse than finding out about her father is him finding out about her.

Ever since reading Still Missing I have looked forward to this book, the idea sounded so very original and had the same suspense mystery feel that Still Missing had.

I will admit that I liked Still Missing more. This one was also good, but there were just too many times I sat there shaking my head thinking that 'that would never happen in real life". But don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed the book.

The author was able to portray Sara in such a way that I felt for her. The struggles she went through growing up, her relationship with her adopted parents and sisters. There were parts where I just wanted to slap her across the head and ask 'what are you thinking'. But that is part of the story.

The ending was good, an all round good story and I look forward to Chevy's next novel.

  1. I didn't like this one so much, but I do have Still Missing in my TBR pile, so I will give the author another go with that one!
