Cover Me in Darkness
*This review is based on an advanced reading copy. Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for a chance to read the book in exchange for an honest review*
This one is a little hard for me to put into words. I appreciated the intricacy of the mystery, but the writing didn't really capture the desperation of the situation and in the end, it fell flat. I just didn't care enough.
The idea of the book was that the main character, Amanda, gets a call that her mother, who had been locked in a mental ward for life for killing her son, had died (ruled a suicide). Upon looking closer, Amanda starts to think that her mother was murdered and now that she knows to look, weird things start happening to her. She almost gets pushed into traffic, she gets poisoned, there's a homeless man following her. She starts to think that all of these events stem from her former religious cult, the Children of Greater God (COGG) and the secret she's kept for them.
