ARC Review: Before I Wake by C.L.. Taylor

Book Synopsis(via Goodreads):
A mother risks everything to uncover the truth behind her daughter's botched suicide attempt

To the outside world, Susan Jackson has it all-a loving family, successful husband, and beautiful home-but when Charlotte, her teenage daughter, steps in front of a bus and ends up in a coma, she is forced to question all of it.

Desperate to find out what caused Charlotte's suicide attempt, she discovers a horrifying entry in her diary: "keeping this secret is killing me." As Sue spins in desperate circles, she finds herself immersed in a dark world she didn't know existed-and the closer she comes to the truth, the more dangerous things become.

Can she wake up from the nightmares that haunt her and save her daughter, or will Charlotte's secret destroy them both?

This insomniac's opinion:
Phew! This novel kept my heart a-thumpin'! I was on pins and needles wondering if Susan was crazy or if her convoluted beliefs of a maleficent ex-boyfriend were true. My mind would be solidly in one camp one minute and the other the next. It was very well written and suspenseful.
Worth staying up all night to read?
Rating: 3.5 stars
