Black Eyed Susan’s by Julia Hearberling Book Review

Pages:  354

published: August 11th 2015

Blurb: As a sixteen-year-old, Tessa Cartwright was found in a Texas field, barely alive amid a scattering of bones, with only fragments of memory as to how she got there. Ever since, the press has pursued her as the lone surviving “Black-Eyed Susan,” the nickname given to the murder victims because of the yellow carpet of wildflowers that flourished above their shared grave. Tessa’s testimony about those tragic hours put a man on death row.

My review: This was a good gripping crime book, which made my brain think and wonder about a lot. It has so many twists and turns, and i thouroughly enjoyed the read. What did let the book down, for me anyway, was the ending. I was really hopping for a good shocking ending, but that did not happen, which ruined the book for me. The ending just slopped down so bad, and was honestly just borning. I wish there was a more dramatic ending, but apart from that, it was a good read. I loved how it changed from present to past all the way through. Using the past parts of her therapist after her kidnapping. The writing flowed nicely and it wasn’t too quick paced. It was a lovely snuggled up read.

My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
