Thriller Domestic

Harper Brown has survived a great deal of tragedy and she bears the scars of this.  Living in Savannah now and trying to establish herself as an art appraiser, she tries to be optimistic even though she has been running from what happened twenty-years ago.  Armed to the teeth and living alone in a home she is having renovated, her life begins to unravel.  The people she has been running from are closing in.  Can she survive a second time?

Harper is an intriguing character in that she is both resilient and fragile at the same time. Not all the people in her life are who they present themselves to be. There is a love interest, Nick. but can she trust him?  His past leaves much to be desired.  Tension runs high throughout the entire narrative.  Harper is determined to stay alive, but bad things keep happening and terror mounts.

FORCED PERSPECTIVE is filled with twists and turns, secrets and danger.  It is a gripping and exciting page turner.  The well plotted story races all the way to its unexpected conclusion.  Highly recommended.

In Alyssa Richards’s break-out new novel, a woman who trusts no one has to believe someone—but a shocking finale will turn everything upside down.

After running from her past for so long, Harper Brown is finally in a good place. She’s renovating a beautiful old home in Savannah, has lined up a dream job appraising Civil War antiquities, and is falling in love with the debonair Nick Chamberlain. Most importantly, her anxiety and paranoia are finally under control. But when her twin sister’s ghost appears shrouded in fog in the square across the street, Harper’s carefully assembled life begins to crumble.

It’s time. The warning has Harper questioning everything Nick tells her. He does seem to be rushing their engagement. Digging deeper reveals a decade-old murder and an ex-wife in a coma after falling down a grand staircase. But was it an accident as he claims, or was she pushed? And what does the cryptic note wedged in Harper’s window mean?

As more “accidents” happen, Harper doesn’t know who to trust—including herself. She’s convinced the past has caught up with her, that someone knows she’s not Harper Brown, and that she’s the next to die.

Blending classic Mary Higgins Clark and Alfred Hitchcock with the rich Gothic atmosphere of Savannah,Forced Perspective is domestic suspense at its page-turning best!
