Sassapphras I am not positive, but this sounds like the lady who carried the baby around in the psych ward.

”The truth can do one of three things:
free you, break up, or complete you.”


This book can in fact be read as a standalone, however if you have read Unravel then you are familiar with the setting (Fairfax) and the heroine referred to as “Mommy Dearest”, Victoria Aldridge. She is the patient who carries around an old baby doll insisting that it’s her daughter, Evelyn.

The story is told from the present as Victoria has decided not to take her medication and find out the reasons

Honestly, my feelings are mixed in regards to this story. I read this one quickly, it was well-written and kept my interest. The build up, the anticipation of finding the truth was structured perfectly, I found myself highly invested in Victoria and learning the events that have led her to becoming the woman introduced in Unravel, the Fairfax patient known as 'Mommy Dearest'.

This is how crazy begins. It creeps up on you very slowly, tapping your shoulder. It makes you turn around in fear. And

I'm beginning to see the truth has its price.
It's your sanity it wants and craves more than anything.

I was craving a romance that was different and preferably a little bit of a mind fuck and when I read the synopsis for Unhinge, I knew I found myself a winner. It was a book that I read in practically one sitting not only because it read quickly and the writing grabbed me, but because the mystery of what was going on was driving me almost as crazy as Victoria was. Unhinge was exactl

This sounds AMAZING!!

"They say my name is Victoria.
They say I'm twenty-seven.
They say I've been in this psych ward for over a year.
They say my husband is dead, and that my daughter is too.
But. Wes visits me almost every night,
and I hold my daughter every day.
They say, they say, they say...
I say, it's time to untangle the past, and uncover the truth."

Major spoiler alert!!! - Don't worry though, everything is in spoiler tab

An intriguing read about Victoria and how she came you stay at Fairfax. Everything went slowly but I'm good since it is required in order to build the characters. However, the time jumps is making me dizzy. I had to do backtracking A LOT because I cannot remember which of them comes first especially since the time jumps only covers 2 years and it's parted in months.

To be honest, I've read the prologue a couple

I think I'm fainted. Please, somebody nip me because I can't believe it happened again.

No, this is not happened. But it did. Or not. I don't really know. Thanks, Calia! Again. Man, this lady wrote a seriously, dangerously brilliant book. Again. And now, I need to check my identity. Again.
I never thought that something can surprass Unravel. But this book did it. Jaw-dropping, crying, loving. All in only one book. If you loved Unravel, Unhing
