"Never Knowing" by Chevy Stevens is GREAT! (Updated)

Never Knowing by Chevy Stevens kept me turning pages and not wanting to put this down.  It is a suspenseful story about an adopted woman, Sara, who tells her psychiatrist about finding her biological parents.  Sara is a single mom who refinishes furniture, has a 6-yr.-old daughter and lives with her fiancee, Evan.  Neither Sara’s mother nor father are at all what she had hoped for or expected.  Her mother, a college professor, was not happy she tracked her down at all and then Sara found out her biological father is a serial killer still on the loose!  Her world gets crazy when he calls her and says he’d like to get to know her.  He never knew he had a daughter!  This book is gripping, emotional and puzzling.  I finished it in just two days and think it would be a great read for a book club.  I highly recommend it!

Chevy Stevens has done it again.  Just when I thought she couldn't do better than Still Missing along comes Never Knowing.  I loved her first book but think this one is actually way better!  There is lots of action and once I started it, I did not want to put it down.  I thought the ending was incredible!  I give this book a triple WOW factor--it's that good!  For sure this will be my book of the month and possibly my best book of this year!

  1. It is GREAT! Though you should correct her name in the title....

  2. This is yet another one on my TBR list. I'm glad to hear it's so good. Still Missing was phenomenal. I can't wait to get my hands on this! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Oh, I almost feel bad about the review I'm getting ready to post on this one ... maybe it's a love/hate book. Whenever I write a less-than-favorable review, I like to include reviews from people whose opinion was different than mine, so let me know if it's OK to link your review up with mine :)

  4. Fredamans: Thank you for pointing out my typo, fixed it as soon as I got home from work. The evenings go so fast that I always feel rushed when posting these reviews.

    Ham1299: We liked "Still Missing" too but both of us liked this one even more.

    Julie: Feel free to link to us anytime, we appreciate it. I'm surprised you didn't like this one though. Oh well, everyone has different tastes, guess that's why there are so many different books! Happy reading . . . and reviewing!

  5. Even better than Still Missing, huh? OK, now I'm really impatient to get to this one! LOL
