THE OFFER by D. L. Wood, Reviewed by Kim Ann #ReleaseDay

Oh. My. Word!!!! This story is so good and so suspenseful! I was literally on the edge of my seat for the entire second half of the story. My jaw dropped so many times because there are so many twists and turns that I never saw coming! My head was literally spinning!

I loved the build up to the climactic portion of this story. I felt like we really got to know Addie and the location and layout of the island. Once the action and suspense start, it doesn’t let up until the very end of the book. There was a part in the story that is basically the sum of all my worst fears. I literally had goosebumps! I would warn you not to start this at night and to also clear out a good block of reading time because you won’t want to stop reading once you start! I really can’t say anything more about the plot or the characters because I feel like it would all verge into spoiler territory! Just be ready!

This is one of the best suspense books I’ve read in a long long time! D. L. Wood is an expert at keeping you guessing and just when you think you’ve figured it all out, you haven’t!
*I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own. The faith thread is light. 5 stars!

BackCover Blurb:

Some decisions are deadly.
Addie Nichols, a young, ambitious chef, is determined to make her new Manhattan restaurant a culinary sensation. Pursuing her dream has cost her everything, including financial stability. Though the restaurant is gaining ground, Addie can’t even afford to pay her rent.

One night a wealthy socialite makes Addie an unbelievable offer: an exorbitant sum for personally catering a weekend celebration for her husband on their secluded private island, nestled in the idyllic Thousand Islands. Ignoring inner echoes of “don’t talk to strangers,” Addie accepts. She desperately needs cash, and it’s only a few days. What could go wrong?


First, Addie is briefly distracted by a charismatic local boat captain before the disheartening realization that his captivating smile is something else she doesn’t have time for.

Then, she barely sets foot on the island when it becomes devastatingly obvious she’s made a huge mistake. But she’s trapped: leaving would be professional suicide, and now there are questions that need answering. With each passing hour come more disturbing revelations about her hosts, the tension mounting until finally death strikes, and the tranquil island becomes the sinister stage for a fatal script with Addie in the lead role.

With no way off the island, the body count rising, and the killer closing in, can Addie outwit a relentless psychopath before it’s too late?

The Offer is a gripping psychological suspense novel where nothing is as it seems. If you relish strong heroines, unpredictable twists, and riveting intrigue, you’ll be enthralled by this compelling story by USA TODAY bestselling author D.L. Wood. Get your copy now and don't miss another thrilling moment.
