Black-Eyed Susans

Cover: 'Black-Eyed Susans'

Staff Review: "Black-Eyed Susans" by Julia Heaberlin


In this extremely addicting, fast-paced thriller, Tessa Cartwright is months away from watching the man on death row executed for leaving her mistaken for dead in a field filled with black-eyed susans and the bodies of young women who did not survive his attacks. But when a patch of freshly planted black- eyed susans appears under her bedroom window, Tessa fears the wrong the man is on death row and the real monster is still loose. Alternating between the young Tessa struggling after the attack and through the trial, and the present day Tessa who is fighting a losing battle, I couldn't put this book down. I read it in a day! Every chapter leaves you frantically wondering what's going to happen next. This author has a gift for cliffhangers. I highly recommend this novel!
