Lakin Hale, true crime writer and victim of an attack that left her for dead, helps crime solvers and victims close cold cases, yet there is one crime she hasn’t been able to solve:
As she embarks on a new case, working closely with Special Agent Rhys Nolan, the details of the murder begin to eerily resemble the event that nearly ended her life. A silhouette of a man haunts her dreams, but there were only two people there that night—Lakin and her murderer. Is the phantom hero who pulled her from the water a delusion, or is he the only one who can unlock her dark memories?
Buried in a watery grave of lotuses, the victim calls out to Lakin, unearthing painful memories of what was stolen from her that fateful night. For those that played a part, it’s now time to answer for their sins.
This book was so good. I’ve read true crime novels before and this book brought back memories of those. I know it’s fiction but I couldn’t help but feel there was some fact instilled in this. You’re an evil genius, Trisha!
Lotus Effect is a book about Lakin’s death. About what’s real and what a mind can fabricate as the truth. About redemption and salvation. It’s about Lakin’s truth.
I love psychological thrillers. I can’t begin to count how many I’ve read and reviewed. They are one of my favorite genres. I’ve been eyeing this book since last year when I read the first teasers. I knew I would love it and I was not wrong.
Like I said above, I’ve read True Crime books. I still do. There’s something fascinating about the mind of a serial killer and their victims. I know this book was from Lakin’s perspective as the victim. It was still as fascinating. I also know this book is a work of fiction but it also closely resembles the work of fact.
I love how one’s brain shuts down to protect us. How we hide the really bad things that happen to us and create a new memory that’s easier to handle. I don’t think we subconsciously do that but our mind does for us. For the truth is much far worse than we could handle.
Lakin is someone that is easily relatable even if her character felt distant at times. I felt for her and my heart broke for her more than once. Anyone could be her. How close any of us could be close to death but something or someone intervenes to change our destiny.
Trisha Wolfe is an evil genius. Lotus Effect will affect you. It will consume you in more ways than one. All I could and can think about is this book. The what if’s. It has taken over my mind.
