Blog Tour & Review: Someone's Listening by Seraphina Nova Glass

Summary: 
She wrote the book on escaping a predator… Now one is coming for her.

Faith Finley has it all: she’s a talented psychologist with a flourishing career, a bestselling author and the host of a popular local radio program, Someone’s Listening, with Dr. Faith Finley. She’s married to the perfect man, Liam Finley, a respected food critic.

Until the night everything goes horribly wrong, and Faith’s life is shattered forever.

Liam is missing—gone without a trace—and the police are suspicious of everything Faith says. They either think she has something to hide, or that she’s lost her mind.

And then the notes begin to arrive. Notes that are ripped from Faith’s own book, the one that helps victims leave their abusers. Notes like “Lock your windows. Consider investing in a steel door.”

As the threats escalate, the mystery behind Liam’s disappearance intensifies. And Faith’s very life will depend on finding answers.



My thoughts: As a big fan of psychological thrillers, I was eager to get my hands on this one and just as excited to see that it was from a new-to-me author. I'm happy to say, it was one crazy ride and I will certainly be keeping an eye out for what Seraphina Nova Glass writes next!

I love nothing more than a protagonist that I am a little unsure about and Faith Finley certainly delivers on that end. Not only is she a completely flawed and complex character, but she is also so damaged that she doesn't even realize it. Enter the drinking and use of narcotics to get through the day. Of course, her issues are compounded by the fact that her husband goes missing yet no one believes her. Everyone else thinks he's run off but she intuitively knows something more sinister is going on.

This book, starting with the title, is addictive and just a little creepy. Not nightmarishly so, but just enough that it keeps you on edge, wondering just what the heck is going on. Faith's mental stability only adds to the complexity of what is already a crazy story.

The suspense builds throughout this story and while I thought I had things figured out, I found myself second-guessing things a time or two. The twists and turns this book takes, especially towards the end really ramped up the tension and while I ended up being right with my first guess, I never put all the pieces together as to the why. 

This is such a fun, wild ride and I cannot recommend it enough. It's the perfect read to escape in during these crazy times...you will surely not be able to put this book down once you start it!
