The perfect daughter. The perfect girlfriend. The perfect murder?
Jenna is seriously ill. She’s lost all hope of getting the heart transplant she needs to live. But just as her life is ebbing away, she receives a donor heart from a girl called Callie.
Who was Callie and how did she die? Jenna is determined to find out.
The closer Jenna gets to those who loved Callie, the more questions arise about her untimely death. Someone knows what happened to Callie. Why won’t they talk?
Jenna is about to uncover the truth, but it could cost her everything; her loved ones, her sanity, even her life.
A compelling, gripping psychological thriller with a killer twist from the author of the Number One bestseller The Sister.
Having read and loved The Sister, which is the authors debut novel, I couldn’t wait to read The Gift and see if it was as good. Having now read it I can confidently say that yes, this was just as good if not slightly better if possible than her debut.
Jenna has had a heart transplant. Like most transplant patients, she is very keen to find out more about the person who donated their organs. There is a good reason why hospitals don’t let patients do this and by the end I reckon Jenna wishes she had never delved down that road either.
Since having the heart transplant, Jenna isn’t herself. Her emotions, feelings, even her dreams are totally new to her. This is why she becomes determined to find out who her donor was.
This is one of those stories where it’s all told from Jenna’s point of view. Her head is a totally messed up place to be and at times it left me dizzy as well as reeling. Her family and friends are understandably very worried as she really is not herself.
Jenna very much becomes fixated on Callie, her donor. She well and truly sticks her nose in stuff that doesn’t concern her but she just can’t let it go. She seems to get herself into some very strange and sometimes dangerous situations and it sure makes for a gripping read.
The Gift is a whirl wind of a read that had me well and truly captivated. It’s a fast paced read which by the end left me feeling breathless. The totally perfect ‘gift’ for fans of psychological thrillers.
