Hush: A Novel | [Kate White]

Hush: A Novel

When Lake Warren learns that her husband, Jack, is suing for full custody of their two kids four months after their separation, she’s pretty certain that things can’t get any worse. The upside is that she’s working with the Advanced Fertility Center as a marketing consultant, alongside the attractive, flirtatious Dr. Keaton. But the morning after their one-night stand, Lake finds Keaton with his throat slashed and discovers that things can indeed become worse—they can become deadly.

Audible Editor Reviews

Marketing consultant Lake Warren faces a custody battle with her ex and a fight for her life when a client shows signs of criminal intent. Aimee Jolson presents this thriller in a matter-of-fact tone that manages to convey Lake's mind-boggling naïveté and poor judgment while at the same time capturing her colleagues' solicitousness, scorn, and sagacity in turn. Jolson's calm has the effect of removing the narrator from the story in the reader's ear, allowing the plot and characters to carry themselves. Aural texture appears throughout the novel in the form of a delightfully light Irish accent from a nurse and slightly grating Brooklyn twang from a former client. These add the perfect spice to an already flavorful performance.

Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author - and Cosmopolitan‘s editor-in-chief - returns with a sizzling thriller in which an ordinary woman flees the scene of a murder and realizes it’s not just the law that’s hunting her.

When Lake Warren learns that her husband, Jack, is suing for full custody of their two kids four months after their separation, she’s pretty certain that things can’t get any worse. The upside is that she’s working with the Advanced Fertility Center as a marketing consultant, alongside the attractive, flirtatious Dr. Keaton. But the morning after their one-night stand, Lake finds Keaton with his throat slashed and discovers that things can indeed become worse—they can become deadly. So as not to jeopardize her case for custody, Lake is forced to lie to the police.

Having just been intimate with a man who has been murdered, and wanting to protect herself from being charged with the crime, she begins her own search for the truth. Meanwhile, the police start looking at her closely, people at the clinic start treating her with hostility, and strange clues begin dropping—quite literally—on her doorstep, and Lake realizes that she is dangerously close to dark secrets, both about Keaton and the clinic. But can Lake stop what she’s started before it’s too late?

    "Hush"

    I'm always suspect of the NYT Bestsellers list, but I thought I would give this one a try based on the review.
    I was right. Just because it's on the list doesn't meant it's worth buying.
    I found this story drab and predictable.

    "KATE WHITE"

    Great book, true to Kate White style. True cliffhanger & well worth the read. You won't want to stop listening to it!! Can't wait until her next one and the Bailey Wiggins series!
