HOLY WOW!!!
I’ve recently realized since Keary released Three Heart Echo, I enjoy thrillers every now and then. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this. But knew I’d probably be taken on a ride!

I became entangled in the life of the one who thinks she’s Sawyer, Ezra, Davis, and.... the real Sawyer James. My heart was beating so hard through the majority of this. I’m pretty sure I yelled out loud. The small signs were there! However, as someone who’s dealt with a stalker, you don’t always see

Wasn't sure what to make of this before I actually started to get into it. I got into it right away, and forget sleep, I was drawn into the world of Sawyer and Davis, and Ezra and the imposter. I couldn't put it down because I had to know what happened in the end. After Three Heart Echo and its bittersweet ending, I knew anything was possible and a Happily Ever After isn't a given with a Keary Taylor book.

Loved the whole thing. Sawyer is a great protagonist (although you could argue

I've been a long time reader of Keary's books and I have to say that I was NOT disappointed when I heard that Skin and Bone was ready to read. Much like the eerie aura of her other psychological thriller, Three Hearts Echo, this story causes less trauma to your psyche :)

In Skin and Bone, we immediately find out that there is someone who has taken over the life of another. There are no surprises as we read the point of view of the antagonist and the steps she takes to literally "take

Hello the book about copy cat and hello the story which is the copy cat of another story. The Evolution of ivy was definitely an inspiration for this book. Well inspiration... more like the same story with a few diferences. I have to say that I was really excited to read this book and ended up completely disappointed. The writting was really simple and bad and this story had some really annoying characters (mainly the main character- the real Sawyer). Her thinking was just off and I am thinking ...more

Wow, just wow. This was an excellent read from start to finish and kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. When Sawyer James receives what she thinks is a spam email she is ready to delete it, that is until she notices an attachment with a still of her. She clicks the attachment only for a video to start, it shows a familiar surrounding, followed by a familiar face. That of her high school boyfriend, the guy she broke the heart of. Not just that she sees herself, or is it?

I went into this book not really knowing what to expect but was hijacked in the first chapter. I was so drawn in to the story that like the main female character I was angry and confused as to who was doing this and why. I couldn't put the book down. I needed us both to have answers and justice! I felt as if I was part of the story as it unfolded!
I appreciated the author giving the imposters point of view and not just the main character. It helped to understand her motivation though, as yo

Skin and Bone is a new psychological thriller by author Keary Taylor. As soon as I started reading this book I was completely sucked in, I just couldn't put it down. I needed to know who was doing this and their motives behind it.

The imposter, the things she did to take over someone else's life, it's kind of scary as it could actually happen. I liked reading it from the imposters POV and from Sawyer James', it really helped to lay out the story and see both sides. I loved the charact

Skin and Bone.

wow!!!

I think I can say that this is the best book I have read this year. And the greatest book that's come from this amazing lady's brain.
I loved every word of this book.

It kept me on the edge of my seat and I didn't want to put it down at all incase I missed something (as if Sawyer would run off without me!!).
The two different perspectives were not hard to read, and the switch between the two was seamless and not at all confusing.

The scariest thing about this story? It could happen.

Keary Taylor takes us on a fast-paced ride on the downward spiral from high school crush to psychotic obsession. What lengths will a psychopath take in order to make things go their way? Identity theft? Plastic surgery? Abduction?

This is a study from both the perspective of the victim and the perspective of the abductor. Calculated. Detailed. Knowing both sides and knowing the facts doesn’t make this book any less enthralling. Jus

‘Skin and Bone’ is a fast paced and exciting thriller. I loved the twists and turns in the book and the concept behind it the novel is really intriguing. This book kept me on the edge of my seat throughout and I loved every page. I love Keary Taylor’s work but this book was fantastic.

The book itself is a great read, during which Sawyer’s identity is taken from her. What unfolds next is quite terrifying and left me wondering how much of what happened could actually happen in reality.

I have to be completely honest: I was really, really reluctant to read this book. The plot is something I have a hard time reading so I stay away from them, only maybe reading once in a great while. However, as I have said many times before, I should have trusted this author. I was immediately sucked into the book, and it didn’t let me go until the end. Sawyer is a great character: tough, determined, yet soft and vulnerable. Davis is the same. I really wanted to yell at Ezra many times throughou ...more

Wow!!! This was such a good read. I've been following the author for some time, and love the way her stories unfold. She loves a good love story, and I have to say I was super surprised by how this love was unveiled.

The first third of the book was so intense, (not saying the rest wasn't) that I barely noticed how far had gotten. Then the investigating begins...I can honestly say that I loved the protagonist & the villain, both strong female characters. Though one is a psychopath, I was able

I think this is some of Keary Taylors best work! I couldn't put it down. I am hopeful to see more of this genre.

So traditionally I avoid thrillers due to the high level of emotional hijacking. And I get stuck on edge until its finished. BUT THIS BOOK! I was completely blown away buy the mystery and detail within the book. I felt it was detailed perfectly, and the pace of the story kept me interested without skimping on detail.

The story revolves around Sawyer James and a distorted vi

I started this book late one evening with every intention of reading a few chapters before going to bed.... well let me just say that didn't work out too well. Sawyer was a small town girl with dreams bigger than her hometown.... but what Sawyer didn't know is she was about to be forced back home and into a nightmare far worse than she could have ever imagined! I want to leave my review vague because I don't want to tip you off on what will happen. If you are looking for a book that will have yo ...more

Skin and bone is a fast paced thriller. I read the entire thing in one night. The book started off fairly confusing but you quickly understand what’s going on by the start of the second chapter. Each character in the book was very well thought out and extremely relatable which made the book very believable. The twists and turns left you on the edge of your seat without becoming too overwhelming. I loved that it was a stand-alone which is a nice break from the endless series that other authors ar ...more

Whoa!
What a wild ride! I did not want to put this book down until I knew EVERYTHING!!!
I was drawn into this world of obsession so quickly, there were so many times i couldn't decide if I should hate, or feel bad for the impostor. So many moments I wanted to scream at Ezra for ignoring signs that were right in front of him.
I could go on and on, but don't want to give away the whole book! Short answer is... you should read this book! It really is one of the best that Keary has written.

Wowzers. This book had me at what the word. From start to finish it had me on my toes. It had me wanting more and more. It kept me wondering what was going to happen, where was this other person going to do. What was her point. Oh my gooseness. I don’t want to spoil it anyone that hasn’t read. Just read it. If you enjoy Psychological Thriller, then read this book. Thank you again Keary for another amazing book!!!

The concept was interesting when Taylor first brought it up to her arc reviewers. I thought it was intriguing and then she published it. I loved it so much. I didn't realize I like psychological thrillers until Taylor came up with Three Heart Echo. I was excited that she decided to do another one of these genres. It was great and twisted. It made you think. How would you like it if someone stole your life?

Wow, Keary has seamlessly transitioned from supernatural to psychological thriller writer. I love the premise. It makes you uneasy thinking about it, that level of obsession. I really enjoyed this story. I also loved the ending and I hope keary does another like this (whilst hitting out some supernatural stuff inbetween hopefully)
This was a dark, twisted and well told story.
