Paige Dawson: the mother of a murdered child and wife to a dead man.

Desperate for the truth, Paige begins to unearth her husband’s secrets.
But she has no idea who she is up against, or that her life isn’t hers to gamble – she belongs to me.
From the bestselling author of Anything for Her, Jack Jordan's My Girl is the new chilling thriller that you won't want to miss.
I had read "Anything for her" by Jack Jordan and when the opportunity came up to join this blog tour and read this book, I jumped at the chance! I've always been one for a good Thriller and Crime novel, and until a few years ago I have to admit I wouldn't read a book by an author I hadn't heard of. I'm glad I don't make that mistake now, or I would be missing out on a really talented author like Jack Jordan. His books have more twists and turns than a roller coaster. This book is one roller coaster of a ride!
Paige lost her Daughter in the most awful way imaginable. All that was recovered from her body was ger arn, found in a river. As if this was not bad enough, her Husband then committed suicide. Her life then took a bad turn and she turned to substance abuse to try and deaden the pain. It was heartbreaking to read, and heartbreaking for those who cared for her, including her Father and her Brother Maxim. Then as if things couldn't get much worse, her house burns down and she loses everything. She has no choice but to move in with her Brother.
Then she started uncovering things that left her confused but determined to find out. This gets her into serious trouble and it seems as if there is no way out.
The story is told in 3 main parts, but more than that I cannot say for fear of a spoiler and it would seriously ruin this edge of the seat thriller. What I will say though is if you like a book you can't put down and makes you sit on the edge of your seat, then this one is for you. I couldn't put it down once I'd started reading it!
The author writes characters you warm to, despite their misgivings. He makes you want the underdog to rise like a phoenix from the ashes.
I will say there are some very upsetting and graphic moments in this book, so be aware of that. I would say if you read one Thriller this year, make it this one!
So far it's my book of the year.
