Review Chevy Stevens - Never Knowing



This was another book I had been waiting for quite a while to get hold of. I liked Still Missing very much and this too did not disappoint.

Sara was adopted and with two sisters life should have been good. However unlike many adoptees, life did not turn out to be as good as it could have been. She was consistently ignored/looked over by her father and one of her sisters positively disliked her, trying to get her into trouble at every turn. Sara could understand her sister but it hurt a great deal to be treated like this by her father. Her mother was too mild and submissive to be able to protect Sara from her father's deliberate snubs and hurts.

With such a background it was only a matter of time till Sara found out who her birth mother was. This led to such a complicated background that at times I am sure she regretted having started ever on this journey.  Not only did her birth mother unequivocally reject her, she uncovered details of her father which horrified not just her but everyone around her.  It also exposed her and her young daughter and fiancee to a great deal of danger. Unknown to Sara, the information went viral edged on by media speculation as it proved to be such a hot bit of news.

For those who want fast paced action, scenarios which though fantastic are quite probable so that you could relate to them personally as well - then this is a book for you. A good example of myster/suspense this was a good book for me.
