The Choice

The Choice by Jake Cross

3.5 Unbelievable Stars 🌟🌟🌟.5


‘You’ve got to help me,’ she pleads. 

On a wet road in the black of night, Karl Seabury is driving home to his pregnant wife. Suddenly, caught in his headlights in the middle of the road is a woman shaking with fright.

The woman says her name is Liz Smith, that her home was attacked, and that she was the only one to escape.

In a split-second decision, Karl decides to help her to safety. But Liz is hiding a dark secret and now his good deed has put his family in terrible danger…

An absolutely unputdownable thriller, with twist after twist after twist, that will leave you breathless. Perfect for fans of Robert Dugoni, John Marrs and Harlan Coben.


This book will require you to stretch your imagination … leave all the questions at the door… and just enjoy the ride…. this was a fast paced, plot driven, implausible book…. I truly believe this would make a better movie than it did a book, it was just so over-the-top, and so unbelievable…..

This is not to say I did not enjoy it, I did….. however I did spend a lot of the book a little lost…. I also spent a lot of this book wondering why these characters are even in this situation in the first place? Why in the world would Carl pick a strange woman up in the middle of the night and insert her into their lives… and put his wife and unborn baby in danger? I really had a hard time connecting with any of the characters, with perhaps the exception of Katie who I felt so bad for…. here she is pregnant caught in the middle of this madness….

This book was cray cray… all these characters running around doing outrageous things…. everyone was up to something and none of it good…. not absolutely certain what I think of the ending….. this book just didn’t quite hit the mark for me, but it might for you!

Recommend if you are able to suspend reality for an entire book, filled with fast-paced thrills…..

*** thank you to the publisher and Net Galley for a copy of this book ***

Suspend some disbelief and enjoy,
