I post book reviews as often as possible but at least once a week every Wednesday! I hope they help you to find some new books that you'll love as much as I did!
Surviving the plane crash is only the beginning for Allison.
The life that she’s built for herself – her perfect fiancé, their world of luxury – has disappeared in the blink of an eye. Now she must run, not only to escape the dark secrets in her past, but to outwit the man who is stalking her every move.
On the other side of the country, Allison’s mother is desperate for news of her daughter, who is missing, presumed dead. Maggie refuses to accept that she could have lost her only child and sets out to discover the truth.
Mother and daughter must fight – for survival and to find their way through a dark web of lies and back to one another, before it’s too late…
Before saying anything at all about what I thought of Freefall, I just want to give you a warning: be prepared to lose sleep over this book, it's impossible to put down. I’d recommend reading it when you know you’ve got plenty of free time because you just won’t be able to tear yourself away! (Don’t say I didn’t warn you when you have to cancel meetings because you can’t stop reading!!)
In Freefall, Barry explores the bond between mother and daughter in a fresh and fascinating way which really highlights the complexity of the relationship.
I loved reading both Allison and Maggie’s chapters. I found Allison’s point of view the most tense while Maggie’s point of view was the most gripping but I really enjoyed how they were both equally important and developed.
I liked the way the story was told with these alternating perspectives and how new information gradually came to light, because this really amped up the tension and kept me totally hooked.
The twists were brilliant, especially those towards the end which I didn’t see coming at all, adding to my enjoyment even more. The ending itself was powerful and I felt that it wrapped up the book very well.
Overall, I’m giving Freefall 4.5 out of 5. It’s gripping, emotionally charged and impossible to put down.
