BEFORE I WAKE
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Suspense
Stunning revelations from the past alternate with present-day chapters from the point of view of a woman named Susan. Although the years in the early ‘90s start as a blissful dream, they soon turn into a nightmare. Taylor has suspense down to a fine art.
Susan Jackson is shocked when her vibrant young daughter, Charlotte, steps in front of a bus in an apparent suicide attempt. Susan reads Charlotte’s final diary entry about a secret the teenager must keep, and her confusion grows. Susan’s manic attempts to uncover the truth while Charlotte lies in a coma make her husband fear that Susan will deteriorate to her previous mental state, but she continues her secret search. Susan is afraid someone from her own past might be responsible for Charlotte’s condition, but she can’t get anyone to believe her. (SOURCEBOOKS, Jun., 336 pp., $14.99)
