{Book Review} Knowing Vera



Question: what would you do if your parent committed suicide in front of your very eyes?
Question: what would you do if you found out the man you love is the son to the woman your father "supposedly killed"?
Question: what would you do if someone started sending you messages claiming to be your dead father 20 years after he committed suicide before your eyes?
Question: what would you do if everything you thought you knew went up in smoke?

These are some of the questions Vera, the lead female character had to live through?

Author Description
Vera Custodio has never fallen in love, though she has strong feelings for her friend and sometimes lover, Zach Spencer. Long-forgotten memories resurface when Vera discovers Zach’s mother was the woman her father supposedly murdered many years ago.
After losing his leg, former triathlete Zach Spencer reevaluates his life—and realizes he’s falling in love with Vera. After she ends their relationship, Zach is determined to prove his love and follows her to Australia in search of the killer.
Caught between a web of family secrets and a deranged adversary, Vera and Zach must depend on each other for survival. Love blossoms, but the truth explodes everything Vera knows about herself. Will she close her heart forever or risk it all for a shot at happily-ever-after?

The book starts off by giving you an inside look into the emotional struggles of the female lead character Vera. Vera is Filipino and is friend's "with benefits" with Zachary Spencer "a walking advertisement for heartbreak rehab clinic". After Zach lost his leg trying to rescue maryanne (Zach and Vera's friend) he went down the dumps (depressed) Vera was there for him, sung to him and gave him hope and help him choose life instead of dieing like he first wanted. The writer shows how Vera hates commitments and how he avoids them like a plague where as Zach once upon a time a player now wants to just love his one woman Vera. 

As the author describes the book (above) Vera finds out that the woman her father supposedly killed is Zach's mother. After learning about her father who she thought was dead, being kidnapped, finding out her uncle is actually her dad and her supposed dad is actually her uncle. She lost her two young brother (both died), when she finds her dad she finds she has more brothers (twins). She goes through a lot, even a point of thinking that since her father faked his death he was protecting someone and she thinks she killed Zach's mum. 

The book has so many twists and turns it will have you on the edge because just when you think you know what's gonna happen or who done it but nope you get surprised and shocked. I loved reading this book I can't tell you how excited I was because even though I am good at predicting the ending of most books this book had me second guesting myself. It is beautifully written and great use of grammar and the English language. 

The author gives you an authentic view of the cities/countries  the book is based on and it's so easy to follow and easy on the eyes. I can't recommend this book enough it was such an amazing read and I enjoyed every word. As you know I like to be able to relate someway in the book of better yet when reading feel like the lead character themselves as I like to engross myself into the book and I was not disappointed. You should really check this book out. 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Yea he supposedly committed suicide though not to spoil it for everyone but he faked it and you can find out why in the book. So cheap to purchase lol
