Welcome to my stop on the blog tour celebrating the release of Shadow Garden by Alexandra Burt! Thank you to Berkley Publishing for the invitation!

About the Book:

A wealthy woman suspects something is off about the luxurious complex she lives in . . . and she is right, in this riveting domestic-suspense novel from international bestselling author Alexandra Burt.

Donna Pryor lives in the lap of luxury. She spends her days in a beautifully appointed condo. Her every whim is catered to by a dedicated staff, and she does not want for anything.

Except for news of her adult daughter.

Or an ex-husband who takes her calls.

Donna knows something is wrong, but she can’t quite put her finger on it. As her life of privilege starts to feel more and more like a prison, the facade she has depended on begins to crumble. Somewhere in the ruins is the truth, and the closer Donna Pryor gets to it, the more likely it is to destroy her.

My Thoughts:

Shadow Garden is my first book by Alexandra Burt, and I had fun with it. Such a captivating storyline.

Donna is living in fancy schmancy condo complex with staff and all the luxuries she can afford. The thing is Donna misses her daughter and even communication with her exhusband.

Something is off, but what is it?

Shadow Garden is a well-told suspenseful story with an original premise. The tables started to turn and I began to question if Donna was a reliable narrator. There were so many twists, and in many ways, the story was like a train wreck I couldn’t stop reading.

How maddening it would be to feel trapped in your own home and afraid. There are several puzzle pieces to analyze and put together, and you’ll just have to see how you feel about this dark, intense story. Alexandra Burt is a captivating storyteller!

I received a gifted copy. All opinions are my own.
