About The Book

You can trust me.
But can I trust you?
Olivia is the domestic goddess who has won millions of followers by sharing her picture-perfect life online. And now she’s releasing her tell-all autobiography.
For professional ghostwriter Nicky it’s the biggest job of her career. But as she delves deeper into Olivia’s life, cracks begin to appear in the glamorous façade. From the strained relationship with her handsome husband, to murky details of a tragic family death in her childhood, the truth belies Olivia’s perfect public image.
But why is Olivia so desperate to leave an old tragedy well alone? And how far will she go to keep Nicky from the truth?


My Thoughts

This is the story of Nicky and Olivia, Nicky is a ghostwriter and Olivia is her next job, but she is too cold and doesn’t want to talk about her past and without any juicy details no one will be interested in her biography. So Nicky will start investigating her past, the house she is living and her parents; that’s when she will discover why Olivia is so strict and cold, there’s a big hole in her childhood… and Nicky can’t wait to start asking questions! Ready to trust her with all her deepest secrets?
I am really struggling writing this review, I don’t want to make any spoilers but it’s not easy! The story has so many layers and twists that it’s difficult to keep all the secrets quiet! You just have to know that this is a slow paced story, told between the two perspectives of Nicky and Olivia, their relationship seen between both of them, because as Olivia says, there are two sides of each story and one without the other will not be complete.
Neither Olivia or Nicky are very likable characters, I can understand that Nicky needs to keep her thoughts hidden but she is too noisy sometimes searching in a house she is not welcomed. On the other side I really hated Olivia, she is like an ice queen, nothing bothers her and keeps all her feelings hidden all the time, she has to be perfect. It was interesting that the story has three parts, the perspective of each one and the ending, it shows you the real story, with a couple of unexpected twists that I am sure that any reader will love.
There are some parts that are slower than others, but I was really intrigued with this book, the story and characters work perfectly, the tension between the characters will rise up till it has to explode, damaging everything. If you want to know who will survive, you’ll have to read the book!
You Can Trust Me is a read you’ll not forget. Ready?
