text Æ Three Rules Ò Marie Drake

Something happening sinister than even she can imagine? Attending the funeral of her abuser is the first step in putting her life back together as she is about to turn twenty one She struggles with the fact she never told anyone what happened to her and that the grave they are mourning over is empty She'd find it a lot easier to move on and believe in the future if he were in the box ready to be covered with dirt She fears the last thread of her sanity has snapped when she sees Lucas everywhere she turns and can't escape a recurring nightmare Is her tormentor alive or is she imagining it? Is her dream triggered by past fears or is it a prediction of the future?From the Author I am a survivor of abuse It changed me I closed myself I received this book to give an honest review as part of a blog tourIt was hard to rate this book I was so intrigued with the story line that I wanted to give it a full 5 rating but as it progressed I went from 45 to a solid 4 My heart broke for Hope and what she had to go through during her childhood And let me say this I am glad there was not any type of details as I do believe I would have been crying my eyes out I enjoyed the suspense within the story line I enjoyed the love that Joey had for Hope even though it took them years to bring it to light The author did a good job with writing about the child abuse and making it to where she was sensitive to the readers There was plenty of twist and turns and made me wonder is the dead man really dead? And will Hope's secret ever get out? You do go back and forth from the present to the past but it is not where you would be confused What made me drop my rating is how Hope seemed to handle some of the situations The way that she did act sometimes I just couldn't really see it happening that way Also when she found out the truth of her past I didn't get how she didn't know who this person was I could understand her blocking it out but how come she didn't just know that it was this person They didn't seem to be a like in any way but I could be wrong about thatIf you are looking for a good read one that will keep you wondering on what is truly going on then give this book a try

Three RulesUoted from Three Rules“I have learned three rules in my life 1 The most dangerous people in the world are not always strangers 2 The scariest things imaginable are not those that can kill you but those you can live through And probably the most prominent 3 The most horrible possibility is not what could happen to you but what you could become – I became a killer” Hope Wellman Brief DescriptionHope Wellman has a childhood full of horrific memories a bone chilling recurring nightmare and a persistent paranoid sense of being followed that she would rather keep repressed Is evil reaching from beyond the grave to capture the tattered remnants of her soul once and for all is it only a machination of her disturbed mind or is there When I first started reading this book I groaned Yep I sat on my couch and let the sound come out and my husband poked his head around the corner to ask what was wrong “It’s about a girl who was abused as a child” as a mother and the mother of a little girl that always makes me cringe I usually shy away from books that deal with any sort of abuse but especially those where children are involved Then I went and found the note from the author I felt compelled at that point She promised that no gory details were included and she held true to that promise All of the main characters are well developed I’m not sure that I was a big fan of Hope at the beginning And I know that my initial dislike of her had to do with not being able to understand where she was coming from Sometimes we just get that whole “get over it and move on” attitude when we are faced with other people’s demons I fell into that trap but the I got to know her the I came to like her and feel her pain The character was developed in such a way that you want to help her instead of pity her We are given details of her abuse through a series of flashbacks In a lot of books this type of story development can get confusing but the author does a fantastic job of separating the past from the present but melds it together to keep the story flowing What we learn of Lucas is all from the flashbacks; and there are subtle clues given in each of these flashbacks that upon first reading you might just miss There were several scenes I went back and reread because I realized a chapter or so down the road that what I needed to know was there the whole timeJoey is amazing He’s been Hope’s friend since they were children and is at the point where he refuses to let her retreat back into her shell He provides the right amount of support without being pushy Probably the only character that I never really connected to was Karen Joey’s sister I wasn’t real thrilled with her deception but it was a necessary part of the story development Joey and Karen’s parents played a large role even though it was kind of behind the scenes They were responsible for a lot of the relationships that were formed in this book Not in a bad way but you have to read it to find out what I mean My only criticism is the ending Not that I didn’t like it it just felt rushed It was like we hit a scene and then BAM everything was moving in fast motion Rushing to get it out and get it over with There were some chapters that gave us a whole lot development over something that wasn’t as truly necessary to the plot albeit still very enjoyable and didn’t in any way detract from the story and here it was like everything was just thrown out there and we could do with it as we pleased All the information was there that A HA moment was there; but it wasn’t nearly as dramatic as it could have been Otherwise this book was flawless I look forward to reading by this author I was riveted by the first chapter and didn’t put it down until I was done Hopefully the future holds great books from herVisit wwwbookie monstercom to read the entire review by Desiree Putaski member of The Bookie Monster Team
