Every writer has a story Some are deadlier than others Aspiring author Graye Templeton will do anything to escape the horrific childhood crime that haunts her After a life lived in shadows she’s accepted a new job as protégé to Laura West influential book blogger and wife of an acclaimed no. The Shadow Writer by Eliza Maxwell is a 2019 Lake Union publication Graye Templeton wants to be a writer but she also needs to live under the radar while she distances herself from an unbelievably shocking childhood However it seems that luck is finally shining on Graye when she backs into a dream job working for Laura West a star blogger who has catapulted authors from obscurity to bestsellers Now if Graye can only get Laura to realize she is not only a great assistant but a promising author as well Laura takes an instantaneous liking to the vulnerable and worshipful Graye Templeton She is just the bright light she needs in her life after her insecure husband David a famous ‘one hit wonder’ she single handedly made famous becomes embittered drinking to excess nearly teetering on the edge of a full blown breakdown The two women forge a strong bond while David does everything in his power to undermine the friendship But Graye desperately needs Laura’s reputation and expertise to realize all her hopes and dreams before her past comes home to roost This is a solid thriller centered around fixation and obsession These themes are often overused staples in psychological thrillers and are hardly original In fact I was concerned this book was about to take an all too familiar path as well one I’ve traveled down many times before However the story proved to be atmospheric with a few interesting and surprising plot twists which kept me interested and maybe a bit on edge I will warn readers however that the characters are not easy to like but to me that is part of what made the novel so effective and why the conclusion worked so well The plot is not always completely plausible and that’s okay but the depiction of human nature and the character’s self absorption and manipulations were uite realistic which is why this story is so disturbing Overall this was a nice introduction to Eliza Maxwell for me I have been curious about her books so now I will have to check out of her work in the future 4 stars
