Behind You by Carly M. Duncan

About the Book

Goodreads | Amazon
When a mysterious attack lands Heather in the hospital on the brink of death, her family rushes to her side. Through an inconvenient maze of shadowed memory and family secrets, Heather can trust only herself to discover if her husband, parents, sister or aunt tried to kill her. During the course of their narratives, each character confesses to their various crimes of passion, envy and ignorance, weaving Heather's mystery into an untraditional tale about seizing the opportunity to start over.

What an intriguing, twisted read. From the start, Carly M. Duncan’s Behind You held my rapt attention and I couldn’t put the book down. With brilliant storytelling techniques, Duncan expertly maintains the suspense and suspicion until the very end and made me keep guessing and guessing. Heather and her family members each have the chance to give (flawed) first-person accounts of the events, and just when I thought I knew all the details, a character would throw out a new revelation. With all the secrets and family drama, I didn’t know who I could trust to tell me the whole story – and that definitely kept me interested and engaged. I have not read a book like Behind You recently, and I really enjoyed it. I would recommend it for fans of mystery and suspense.

Thanks to Carly M. Duncan and Pump Up Your Book, I received a copy of Behind You and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
