Book Review: Cross Her Heart

Lisa has a secret. She refuses to have her photo taken, is an overprotective mother, and only has one real friend. Clearly, she’s running away from something terrible in her past. But her daughter Ava has a secret, too. She can’t stop thinking about her internet boyfriend…and their relationship may threaten to destroy this new life Lisa has worked so hard to build.

This was a cute enough thriller. I realize cute isn’t exactly a term you want to hear when it comes to thrillers, but I think that’s just because it didn’t absolutely blow me away. Some parts were just a little too predictable and the writing wasn’t exactly incredible. Not my favorite book in this genre, but it was a good one to tear through on my train ride to Boston.

3 out of 5 stars.
