Playing Jenna by Kiersten Modglin
Published: March 29, 2017
Kiersten Modglin is an Amazon Top 30 bestselling author of award-winning psychological suspense novels and a member of International Thriller Writers. Kiersten lives in Nashville, Tennessee, with her husband, daughter, and their two Boston Terriers: Cedric and Georgie. She is best known for her unpredictable suspense, and her readers have dubbed her ‘The Queen of Twists.’
Monroe is trying to get through it and figuring out how to start over, how to rebuild her life—divorcing her husband, who cheated, and trying to figure out what she is going to do next. Her life is a sad spiral of bad and worst days. But little does she know; it’s about to get a whole lot worse.
This was a total mind twist. And it was so well done. This is a tragic story that will rip your heart out of your chest chapter after chapter. You will be so filled with rage and sorrow that you really won’t know which emotion is taking priority.
The characters in this book are so well done. This is such a twisted tale. Such a dangerously dark story that leaves you feeling empty. But as the pieces start coming together and the story starts making sense, the brutal truth starts to peek from behind the shadows; the depths of secrecy and selfishness contained within will leave you dumbfounded.
The way that Kiersten handles mental illness and trauma is remarkable. She does so in such a raw, honest manner. But she also gives her survivors a voice, and she appropriately handles the information.
Colt is such a necessary character. He is so delicate, kind, and patient. Even when his heart is breaking, and he is at a point that he thinks he can’t take anymore- he does. He continues. He keeps doing everything in his power to be an advocate for his wife. To be her voice when she can’t be her advocate. Colt is the person every survivor deserves.
This is not a typical love story. There is no sunshine and rainbows here—only darkness, secrets, and pain. But my god, is it delivered in a brilliant way.
