Too Good To Be True


Skye Starling is overjoyed when her boyfriend, Burke Michaels, proposes after a whirlwind courtship. Though Skye seems to have the world at her fingertips―she’s smart, beautiful, and from a well-off family―she’s also battled crippling OCD ever since her mother’s death when she was eleven, and her romantic relationships have suffered as a result.

But now Burke―handsome, older, and more emotionally mature than any man she’s met before―says he wants her. Forever. Except, Burke isn’t who he claims to be. And interspersed letters to his therapist reveal the truth: he’s happily married, and using Skye for his own, deceptive ends.

In a third perspective, set thirty years earlier, a scrappy seventeen-year-old named Heather is determined to end things with Burke, a local bad boy, and make a better life for herself in New York City. But can her adolescent love stay firmly in her past―or will he find his way into her future?

On a collision course she doesn’t see coming, Skye throws herself into wedding planning, as Burke’s scheme grows ever more twisted. But of course, even the best laid plans can go astray. And just when you think you know where this story is going, you’ll discover that there’s more than one way to spin the truth.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I had a REALLY good feeling when this book came in the mail. I love a good thriller/mystery and it sounded SO good.

I also love lots of secrets in a book (well mostly) and Burke’s diary was pretty juicy. But just the tip of the iceberg!


What I Liked:

That cover. It’s a ring and we all know what a ring symbolizes- but the colors hint at something wrong (and I like that!)

Skye. Sometimes verging on almost too naive at her blind trust in Burke- she proves herself to be an interesting character as the book goes on.

How the book was laid out- current time and a story from the past. It all twists and turns very nicely the more you get into the book.


Bottom line: I really enjoyed this book. It had a lot of twists and turns, a character that I hated ( in the best way possible)  and an ending that satisfied me.
