Some truth are absolutely better left unknown. A gripping suspense that leaves you with a sense of wonder and fear. Would recommend to anyone.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Brenna TOP 1000 REVIEWER on July 6 2011
Format: Hardcover
The basic plot is that Sarah was adopted as a baby and she wants to find her birth parents. What she discovers is horrific, and sets the plot in motion since this is all discovered in the first few pages. The basic plot is that Sarah was adopted as a baby and she wants to find her birth parents. What she discovers is horrific, and sets the plot in motion since this is all discovered in the first few pages.

Chevy Stevens writes well, similar to many other popular authors who write many books (think of James Patterson, for example). She draws you in to this story, and this book is told during the main character's (Sara) therapy sessions so you really get to hear her honest thoughts and feelings.

This is a thriller, but it's more psychological than action-packed. Sara's own emotional issues and responses are probably the most fascinating draw of the book as she finds herself trapped without any real escape. There are shocking twists along the way, and while the book really isn't a mystery it is an exciting ride to go on.

It's hard to put down, and really doesn't take long to read if you sit down over a couple days and really immerse yourself in the story and characters. For myself, I found it fascinating to see the family relationships play out, especially the biological similarties Sara starts to notice after a while between herself, her birth father, and her daughter. People who come from interesting family backgrounds (particularly those with difficult parents) would probably enjoy this, as would those who enjoy the thriller genre.

(Please note that I won an ARC in a Goodreads giveaway but this review is 100% my own opinion).

A great novel, although a little far fetched in some places - I seriously doubt that the serious crime squad would spend time with their cases, bringing them food and doing household chores!
Having said that, I found the book hard to put down, and there were some great twists to the story.

Format: Paperback
Sara Gallagher appears to have it all - a thriving business, a loving fiance, and a beautiful daughter. However, as the adopted child of a couple with two biological daughters, she has always felt like an outsider. Her quest to find her birth mother sets off a terrifying chain of events which threatens to destroy everything Sara has and, too late, she realizes that there are some things you are better off never knowing.

Never Knowing, by Chevy Stevens, is a fast-paced thriller that will grip you from the first page and keep you on the edge of your chair until the very end. So be warned - don't make the mistake I did and begin this book near bedtime because, once you start Never Knowing, you won't be able to put it down.
