Black Eyed Susans opening line: Thirty-two hours of my life are missing.
And Lydia is trying to help Tessa to ‘find’ them. At 17, Tessa is the sole survivor of a serial killer. She was left for dead and the trauma has left her blind, and in need of treatment. Feeling pressure from her father, her best friend and her therapist, Tessa becomes instrumental in putting the man responsible behind bars. But from when she does this to the present, someone keeps on planting black-eyed susans for her to find and to remind her of her horror. Is the correct person behind bars, and is there more horror to come for Tessa?
Black Eyed Susans
Seventeen-year-old Tessa, dubbed a ‘Black-Eyed Susan’ by the media, became famous for being the only victim to survive the vicious attack of a serial killer. Her testimony helped to put a dangerous criminal behind bars – or so she thought. Now, decades later the black-eyed susans planted outside Tessa’s bedroom window seem to be a message from a killer who should be safely in prison. Haunted by fragmented memories of the night she was attacked and terrified for her own teenage daughter’s safety, can Tessa uncover the truth about the killer before it’s too late?
This book was gripping and I put everything else aside to read it. If you are looking for something to add to your reading list in this genre, look no further.
