Tear Me Apart

Summary: The follow-up to her critically acclaimed Lie to Me, J.T. Ellison’s Tear Me Apart is the powerful story of a mother willing to do anything to protect her daughter even as their carefully constructed world unravels around them.

One moment will change their lives forever…

Competitive skier Mindy Wright is a superstar in the making until a spectacular downhill crash threatens not just her racing career but her life. During surgery, doctors discover she’s suffering from a severe form of leukemia, and a stem cell transplant is her only hope. But when her parents are tested, a frightening truth emerges. Mindy is not their daughter.

Who knows the answers?

The race to save Mindy’s life means unraveling years of lies. Was she accidentally switched at birth or is there something more sinister at play? The search for the truth will tear a family apart…and someone is going to deadly extremes to protect the family’s deepest secrets.

With vivid movement through time, Tear Me Apart examines the impact layer after layer of lies and betrayal has on two families, the secrets they guard, and the desperate fight to hide the darkness within.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

After reading both Lie To Me and No One Knows (and fangirl-ing over JT at Book Expo 2017), I knew that I would basically read any book she wrote.

So, when I saw Tear Me Apart on her Instagram page- I marked it to read on Goodreads and danced with joy when a copy arrived a few weeks later for me to review.

I started reading Tear Me Apart and at first, it just seemed kinda tame. Her other 2 books within the first 50 or so pages had twists and moments that were leaving me “OMG!” However, I had faith that crazy was going to hit the fan- and I was NOT disappointed.


What I liked:

I loved the letters. They provided necessary insight.

How the story was laid out. Each part of the book provided necessary details and built upon facts and secrets that you had figured out/was figuring out.

The ending. Hooked. HOOKED.


Bottom line: For me, J.T. Ellison can’t do much wrong in the literary world and I absolutely ate this up like… well cake. Gelato. Homemade ice cream. You get the drift. I now wait so not patiently for the next book to come from her devious (literary) mind.
