⭐️Book Tour⭐️ If She Wakes by Erik Therme

With thanks to @ZooloosBT and @ErikTherme for a place on the tour, and the opportunity to read and review this book.


Who do you trust when everyone is lying?

My name is Tess Parker. By

Two days ago, I was in a car accident with my sister-in-law, Torrie. Before she slipped into a coma, she asked my husband and me to care for her four-month-old son, Levi.

Yesterday, a woman claiming to be Torrie’s estranged sister knocked on our door. But Torrie has no siblings . . . or so she said. She and my brother were only together a short time before he left, and Torrie has clearly been keeping secrets.

Today, another of Torrie’s “sisters” has come to town. Both say the other is lying about who they are.

Neither of them is telling the truth. Both of them want Levi.


We are returning over a year later from the events that took place in If She Dies, and having already been on an emotional, twisty rollercoaster of a ride with Tess and Josh I was excited to see what was next for them. This second instalment was even better than the first, which I loved, you definitely want to set aside some time when you pick it up as you won’t want to put it back down!

The prologue starts with Tess suffering a traumatic loss, that of her twin brother Colin, she has such a deep bond with him that the reader knows she will be reeling from this. It ends noting things can’t get any worse – famous last words!!

The story is told in the first person and we are not always sure how reliable a narrator Tess is. Is she just being paranoid? Is that what happened or just her perception? This really added to the intrigue and suspense created, and to the thrilling journey we’re taken on, as we’re trying to piece everything together while not quite knowing what’s real…

I was engrossed from the start, the story begins with Tess seeing blood all around with no idea what’s happened! Torrie ends up in a coma leaving Tess and Josh taking care of Levi which stirs up issues for them.

As the story unfolds new characters are introduced. Tessie’s sister Jessie who says she’s there to lend a hand and put to rest a long family feud. Tessie’s sister Mia also turns up warning Tess not to trust Jessie as she has ulterior motives at heart. Quite ominous as the reader knows Tessie has always said she has no family!

Who’s telling the truth? Who should Tess believe? Josh seems very disengaged, as if he’s just switched off from it all. Tess doesn’t have anyone to turn to and I really felt for her as you can see how isolated and alone she is dealing with so much.

The story takes a sinister turn when Levi is kidnapped. There’s so many twists and turns you never know what’s going on or who to believe. I was completely shocked to learn who the kidnapper was and of their plan for Tess! She has to dig deep for the strength and fortitude to help Levi when she finds herself in a terrifying situation with a heartbreaking decision to make. Nothing is as it seems and there’s a surreal quality weaved through the chapters making you doubt everything you think you know! I was not prepared for the ending in any way!

Overall, it’s a fast-paced, compelling read with paranoia, suspense and intrigue threaded through the pages. I was completely immersed in Tess’s world, and loved the phone call at the end which has me eagerly anticipating (and hoping!) for the next book in this captivating series.
