Review: Center of Gravity

Center of Gravity_ CoverLaura McNeill will be on tour July 13-27 with her novel Center of Gravity The truth could cost her everything.

Her whole life, Ava Carson has been sure of one thing: she doesn’t measure up to her mother’s expectations. So when Mitchell Carson sweeps into her life with his adorable son, the ready-made family seems like a dream come true. In the blink of an eye, she’s married, has a new baby, and life is wonderful. Or is it? When her picture-perfect marriage begins unraveling at the seams, Ava convinces herself she can fix it. It’s temporary. It’s the stress. It’s Mitchell’s tragic history of loss. If only Ava could believe her own excuses. Mitchell is no longer the charming, thoughtful man she married. He grows more controlling by the day, revealing a violent jealous streak. His behavior is recklessly erratic, and the unanswered questions about his past now hint at something far more sinister than Ava can stomach. Before she can fit the pieces together, Mitchell files for divorce and demands full custody of their boys. Fueled by fierce love for her children and aided by Graham Thomas, a new attorney in town, Ava takes matters into her own hands, digging deep into the past. But will finding the truth be enough to beat Mitchell at his own game? Center of Gravity weaves a chilling tale, revealing the unfailing and dangerous truth that things—and people—are not always what they seem.

Review Rating: 4 LIGHTNING BOLTS

Review: Imagine that you're living the picture perfect life. A good marriage, kids, a family to adore. What if one day, almost out of the blue, it begins to change? Slowly at first, and it makes you wonder. But things quickly worsen until you're trapped in a nightmare you can't seem to escape....

Center of Gravity is a thrilling roller coaster of events. This book captured my attention, kept me up WAY too late at night just to find out how this wild ride ended.

Mitchell Carson is utterly crazy. Just...goosebump worthy and no, I don't mean that in a good way. I felt for Ava and her family as the hellish journey has only begin.  I felt like yelling at Ava in the beginning of the book, but she quickly changes into a stronger, braver woman. If you're looking for a thrilling, fast paced story that will keep your attention, Center of Gravity is IT! I'm most definitely looking forward to more works form this author.
