The Imposter

Pub date: 3/9
Sixteen years ago a tragic event happened to this small family, that impacted the whole community. Deborah the young mother with an abusive husband and Sibley the Daddy’s girl. 

This story is full of the aftermath of abuse and covering it up to protect your children. The addiction that passes down genetically and the trauma that either pushes you up or drags you down. 

So many secrets that you are never completely sure what happened or which event culminated to where they are now. Sixteen years of not talking or being a part of each other’s lives. They don’t recognize who they have become.

I started writing this at 60% but seriously I was just on the edge of my seat trying to figure out the story the whole time but I definitely was wrong.

I’m new to the psychological thriller category but definitely love trying to guess who is behind everything. It was not who I thought. I didn’t even see them coming lol.

I definitely recommend for those that love psychological thrillers! 

TW: Alcohol addiction, spousal abuse, addiction, 

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Thank you Net Galley and Thomas & Mercer for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.

#playbookers prompt – Read a genre you don’t normally read- Trying more thrillers lately though.


From the outside looking in, Sibley Sawyer has a perfect life. As a successful attorney, she’s worked hard to get to the top of her game—but when her personal and professional lives implode, Sibley looks for a way to turn the page.

Unable to shake the tragic circumstances that caused her to flee her rural Midwestern hometown, Sibley wants nothing more than to reunite with her estranged mother, Deborah, and bury their past tensions.

But as she reenters the life she left behind, she realizes her mother isn’t the same person she remembers, and she’s not the same daughter either.

As both women struggle to piece together a tangled web of deceit and lies, and the shocking circumstances that caused Sibley to leave in the first place, it becomes clear there are secrets rooted deeper than either mother or daughter could ever have imagined.

Can you really deceive your past and those around you?
