If She Only Knew

Title: If She Only Knew

Author: Eva MacKenzie

Publication Date: June 23rd, 2022

Genre: Psychological Thriller

She’s got a killer secret…

Eden Wyatt knows three things to be true:
She’s a mother.
She’s a survivor.
She’s a killer.

After murdering her husband, she’s committed to a hospital for the criminally insane. She has forty-five days to convince them she’s no longer a danger to others.

But soon, evidence begins to surface suggesting Eden is spiraling out of control again. Only this time, her rage has a new target.

Can she accept what she’s done when she uncovers the truth built on lies? Or will the facts finally push her over the edge?

Excerpt

“Has anyone been helping you out?” Layla asked.

“Who. Who’s going to help me? Ben?” Eden’s tone was livid. “Just wait until I see that asshole…  Just one time, that’s all it’ll take.”

Eden pulled up next to her at the sink, close enough that Layla felt her breath hot against her cheek, and she whispered in a childlike voice. “I hear them talking.” She tapped her temple with her finger. “You know what they’re saying…Kill Ben, Eden. Kill him.” And she craned her neck back and laughed. She laughed so hard tear streamed down her face.

Available on Amazon

My Review

Thank you to the author for sending me a copy of this book via R&R Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.

I’ve read 2 other books by this author, and I enjoyed both of them so when the chance to read this one came up, I obviously had to take it and I’m glad I did because once again I enjoyed it.

This book is told from 2 POVs. Eden’s chapters are told in the present where she has been locked up in a mental hospital for murdering her husband. Then there’s Layla’s chapters which are in the past from where her and Eden first meet and then they catch up to the present.

I was immediately drawn into the story, but it wasn’t an on the edge of my seat kind of story. I loved that we got Eden’s POV because reading her chapters will make you feel like you’re going crazy like she feels. I felt so bad for her throughout the whole book but there are times where she came off very manipulative and I didn’t really care for that especially in the end. I’m not sure how I feel about how things ended for her.

I will say I was able to guess at somethings but even still there were some aspects of what I guessed that I didn’t see coming. Despite kind of knowing where things were going it didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the book.

This ends in a way where there is potential for another book, and I will totally read that if the author decides to write it. I actually hope she does because I would like to know what happens now.

I’m being very vague because I don’t want to spoil anything but overall, this was another enjoyable read from Eva and I look forward to her next book. I definitely recommend this if you’re into psychological thrillers.

My rating: 4 stars
