The Things We Knew (Review)
This review is for the book "The Things We Knew" by Catherine West. In this novel, readers meet Lynette Carlisle. Lynette's family completely fell apart after her mother's death twelve years ago. She has three brothers and a sister who all went their separate ways, and she was left to take care of her ailing father, ailing house, and ailing finances. She's been carrying a burden for a long time, and it's time to call the siblings home to discuss the future of their childhood home, and the nightmares that have been plaguing Lynette and coming out through her artwork.
Then enters Nicholas Cooper, Lynette's former crush. He still has feelings for Lynette, but they didn't separate on good terms in the past, and he has a few secrets he has kept from her as well. They are going to have to get past all that in order to move onto a future together.
I really liked this novel. I loved the variety of characters, and I enjoyed the storyline. There was mystery and tension and suspense throughout the novel, but at the same time you will root for the romance that Nicholas is attempting to start with Lynette. I highly recommend this novel.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
