Review - Trust In Me by Luca Veste

Trust In Me by Luca Veste 
Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton
Release date: 14 September 2023
Back cover blurb: THE THERAPIST. Sara seems to have it all - a thriving practice as a trauma counsellor, a comfortable home, a loving husband and two children. A world away from her troubled past. She's the only one who knows that her entire life is built on a lie. THE PATIENT. Until a new patient confesses to a crime that hits too close to home. Sara is thrown into a quest to hide the truth: from her family, her co-workers, and most importantly, the police. THE CONFESSION. How can this person know about Sara's past? And how can Sara silence her before it's too late? One thing is certain: she will do anything to keep her family safe.

I've been a Luca Veste fan since his debut, and I love how every time he releases a new novel he brings something different to the table. 

Trust In Me is no exception.

What would you do if a patient of yours confessed to a crime that you committed? Something that happened so long ago that you should have put it out of your mind, and felt less guilt about by now.

But what if that crime was so terrible that you don't think you will ever not feel guilty about it, and believe you should be punished?

This is the position that Sara finds herself in.

When a new patient comes to see her in her role as therapist, Sara is left shaken following their session. For Ella has confessed to a crime that Sara herself committed years previously. A crime that Sara thought no one except those involved were aware of.

A situation that she wishes every day hadn't happened. 

When the patient leaves the session abruptly without booking a follow up appointment, Sara knows that they must know who she is and what she has done. So now she needs to find out exactly what Ella knows, who she is, and what she wants. 

Whatever her motive, Sara cannot let Ella tell anyone else about her crime or it will jeopardise her whole life. Sara now is wealthy, successful, happily married with two children. She cannot and will not go back to her previous life.

And she will do anything to keep her family safe.

Every time I thought I knew what was happening with this story something else happened to turn that completely on its head. You can trust no one and I really mean no one! But that just makes it even more thrilling.

I can't wait to see what Mr. Veste has in store for us next.

Trust In Me is available now via Amazon online and all good book shops.

Thank You to the publishers who approved my request via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
