4.5 Mind Blowing Stars🤯🌟 Believe Me by J P Delaney #JPDelaney #BookReview #PubDay

Happy Publication Day to this enthralling psychological thriller!

Thrilled to share with you today my review for this unique and dark thriller that I could not put down!

My Thoughts

4.5 Mind Blowing Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟.5

WOW! What a crazy ride this book was! This book sucked me in from the very first page… and after it tossed me around and turned me on my head it spit me back out and left me spinning…. Claire I might need to crown you the most unreliable narrator of them all! Bravo! J P Delaney for writing such a unique and twisted thriller!

Claire is a struggling British actress living in New York without a green card… so what’s a girl to do? Claire being resourceful and an actress begins working for a divorce lawyer and becomes a decoy… trapping cheating husbands and making enough money to pay the bills, all seemeds good until… One of the wives she was working for ends up murdered… don’t even want to say anything else about the plot, because this is a journey best gone into blind…

This was an enthralling story that left me not trusting anybody! I thought it was so uniquely told I loved the script aspects… I loved all the psychology and the criminal profiling… The poetry discussed in this book will probably resonate with others more than me… poetry not my thing, to be honest I didn’t even know this was a real poet… color me ignorant! This was a group read and fortunately my fellow sisters were kind enough not to make me feel stupid when I excitedly told them that Baudelaire was a real live poet!🤦‍♀️

You do need to suspend belief for parts of this book and just go with it… but BELIEVE ME it is so worth it! The twists in this book they keep coming… this was a wild ride I was sad to have to get off of!

Strongly recommend to all fans of a well-done unique psychological thriller that will blow your mind🤯

*** many thanks to Valentine Books for my copy of this book ***

If you want the real 411 on the poet Baudelaire please visit one of my book Besties’ blog Mackenzie @PhDiva… she actually studied this poet in college in French, And I didn’t even know he was a real person! But to be fair I was a Kinesiology major! I know where your hamstring is!😂

About the Book

A struggling actor, a Brit in America without a green card, Claire needs work and money to survive. Then she gets both. But nothing like she expected.

Claire agrees to become a decoy for a firm of divorce lawyers. Hired to entrap straying husbands, she must catch them on tape with their seductive propositions. The rules? Never hit on the mark directly. Make it clear you’re available, but he has to proposition you, not the other way around. The firm is after evidence, not coercion. The innocent have nothing to hide.

Then the game changes.

When the wife of one of Claire’s targets is violently murdered, the cops are sure the husband is to blame. Desperate to catch him before he kills again, they enlist Claire to lure him into a confession.

Claire can do this. She’s brilliant at assuming a voice and an identity. For a woman who’s mastered the art of manipulation, how difficult could it be to tempt a killer into a trap? But who is the decoy . . . and who is the prey?

Enjoy the day! Berit☀️✨

  1. I hate the “unreliable narrator” trope. I feel like it’s been run over by a car… Then backed over a couple more times for good measure… That being say, I’ve heard really good things about this book… And I kind of want to read it… Lol!

  2. Great review Berit. I have read so many good reviews for this one. I am really looking forward to reading this one. The premise is a bit familiar, but obviously takes a turn that is unexpected.
