Blog tour: If She Wakes

Welcome to the blog tour for If She Wakes by Erik Therme!

More about the book…

My name is Tess Parker.

Two days ago, I was in a car accident with my sister-in-law, Torrie. Before she slipped into a coma, she asked my husband and me to care for her four-month-old son, Levi.

Yesterday, a woman claiming to be Torrie’s estranged sister knocked on our door. But Torrie has no siblings… or so she said. She and my brother were only together a short time before he left, and Torrie has clearly been keeping secrets.

Today, another of Torrie’s “sisters” has come to town. Both say the other is lying about who they are.

Neither of them is telling the truth.

Both of them want Levi.

More about the author…

Erik Therme has thrashed in garage bands, inadvertently harboured runaways, and met Darth Vader. He currently resides in Iowa City, Iowa—one of only twenty-eight places in the world that UNESCO has certified as a City of Literature.

My impressions…

Was it a page-turner? I am so glad I read If She Dies and If She Wakes one after the other because they are incredibly addictive. 100% page-turner quality!

Did the book meet my expectations?
This is the follow up to If She Dies and, even though I didn’t, it could be easily read on its own. Sometimes follow ups can be rather repetitive but I am happy to say that this wasn’t the case. I was glad to meet some of the same characters from the previous book, and to make the acquaintance of new ones. As a mother, both books gave me some sleepless nights, but it was definitely worth it!

Three words to describe it. Fast-paced. Twisty. Addictive.

Do I like the cover? It didn’t rock my world but it’s a nice fit.

Have I read any other books by the same author? Yes, I read If She Dies and I loved it just as much as this.
