I have three months to write the last book of my life. Three months to confess the details of that day, and how it changed everything for me.

My name is Helena Ross. I’ve written fifteen romance novels, ten of which have become international bestsellers. But this one isn’t a romance, no Happily Ever After in place. This novel holds only the truth, which I have run away from for four years. The truth, which I have hidden from the police, from my loved ones, from the world.

This final book?

It’s my confession.

Review Header

I’ve read quite a few books by Alessandra Torre over the past couple years and I have to say that The Ghostwriter is unlike anything she has written before. While the main character Helena is a best-selling romance novelist, this story is definitely not a romance. I really loved the plot of this one. Helena is a very different yet intriguing character, she’s difficult and frustrating but you can’t help but become completely fascinated with her.

The Ghostwriter is mostly told from Helena’s perspective, but we also get snippets from some of the secondary characters as well. This story provided a lot of twists and turns and definitely kept me guessing as a reader. My only criticism would be that the first half of the novel seemed to drag on a little too long. There were portions of writing that I didn’t feel were necessary to the plot. I found myself skimming through some sections looking for the next bit of dialogue.

I don’t want to give anything away, I loved going into this story having no clue where Torre was going to take things. Overall, I did enjoy this story. Torre provides readers with such a refreshing and unique plot, and the mystery behind Helena definitely made for a great reading experience.
