Body and Bone by L S Hawker

Nessa is married, has a son, and also does a successful blog and radio show.  When her husband relapses on drugs again, she kicks him out of the house and out of her life.  It hurts, but she won't let her past revisit again and she won't have drugs around her son.  Then she finds out he's missing and presumed dead.  The cops think she's killed him...

Witness Impulse and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published May 3rd.

This book is chilling.  Some is stalking her, sending posts from her that are not hers but a false email address, even posts nude pictures and about her problems from the past.  She doesn't know who is after her but she finds drugs in a package mailed to her, in her house, and even photos of her son.  When she finds out her husband is dead, she believes this stalker killed him.  There's one cop that doesn't.  He intends to nail her for murder.

Her life falls apart.  The radio talk show and the blog are affected by all this information that is being decimated about her.  Her husband is dead and she is grieving him.  She's getting a reputation of crying wolf.  She finally makes up her mind to find out who killed John and clear herself.  When she finds a microchip under her coffee table that shows her how they could hear her, she knows this is a very serious thing.  The cops still view her with suspicion, so it's up to her to fix it.

The finale on this story is terrifying.  The stalker was the last person I would have suspected or even thought of.  Nessa is facing death and she's still fighting.   I'm glad this book was fiction.  It hit a little close to reality to please me.
