Until the Day I Die

Until the Day I Die by Emily Carpenter
Print and e-book, 325 pages
Expected publication: March 12th 2019 by Lake Union Publishing

If there’s a healthy way to grieve, Erin Gaines hasn’t found it. After her husband’s sudden death, the runaway success of the tech company they built with their best friends has become overwhelming. Her nerves are frayed, she’s disengaged, and her frustrated daughter, Shorie, is pulling away from her. Maybe Erin’s friends and family are right. Maybe a few weeks at a spa resort in the Caribbean islands is just what she needs to hit the reset button…

Shorie is not only worried about her mother’s mental state but also for the future of her parents’ company. Especially when she begins to suspect that not all of Erin’s colleagues can be trusted. It seems someone is spinning an intricate web of deception—the foundation for a conspiracy that is putting everything, and everyone she loves, at risk. And she may be the only one who can stop it.

Now, thousands of miles away in a remote, and oftentimes menacing, tropical jungle, Erin is beginning to have similar fears. Things at the resort aren’t exactly how the brochure described, and unless she’s losing her mind, Erin’s pretty sure she wasn’t sent there to recover—she was sent to disappear.

My thoughts about Until the Day I Die ~~

Until the Day I Die is a story that kept me wondering and guessing until the end. And then there was the ending that I wasn't expecting. All the deceit, conniving, and suspense I felt throughout the whole story made this a definite page turner. Then there was the 'drop my jaw' conclusion. Genus!

Erin gets sent away to a retreat facility when her family decides she is not handling her husband's sudden death. But things are not what they seem there and it's anything but a restful retreat. Some of the things Erin had to deal with definitely got my heart racing.

And Shoire, Erin's daughter—what a strong, smart person she is. She knows something isn't right with her mom and the company her parents founded and she just keeps digging and never gives up, even when she doesn't know who to trust.

Emily Carpenter has once again written a story that I won't soon forget. This is one you need to read!

I received Until the Day I Die via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
