Book Blurb from Goodreads

Lila Bennett’s bad choices have finally caught up with her. And one of those decisions has split her life in two. Literally.

In one life, she’s taken hostage by someone who appears to be a stranger but knows too much. As she’s trapped in a concrete cell, her kidnapper forces her to face what she’s done or be killed. In an alternate life, she eludes her captor but is hunted by someone who is dismantling her happiness, exposing one secret at a time.

Lila’s decorated career as a criminal defense attorney, her marriage, and her life are on the line. She must make a list of those she’s wronged—both in and out of the courtroom—to determine who is out to get her before it’s too late. But even if she can pinpoint her assailant, will she survive? And if she does, which parts of her life are worth saving, and which parts must die? Because one thing’s for certain—life as Lila Bennett knew it is over.

My Review

This is my first time reading writing-duo Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke, and I have to say I am impressed.

The Two Lila Bennetts gave me a story that offered two possible outcomes and that alone was enough for me to love it. Lila, being a defense attorney, is a perfect protagonist for a story like this as her work involves taking justice into her own hands. Her life choices are not the best, and this book talks about her karma, told in two possible takes.

Both universes offered something exciting and gripping. Whether “Free” or “Captive”, I was at the edge of my seat all the time and crazy for the plot twists and revelations all throughout.

No spoiling anything – just grab a copy of this book! It’s a great one-sitting read or a beach read.

I loved it overall and I am definitely excited to read more from the authors!
