The follow-up to her critically acclaimed Lie to Me, J.T. Ellison's Tear Me Apart is the powerful story of a mother willing to do anything to protect her daughter even as their carefully constructed world unravels around them.One moment will change their lives forever...Competitive skier Mindy Wright is a superstar in the making until a spectacular downhill crash threatens not just her racing career but her life. During surgery, doctors discover she's suffering from a severe form of leukemia, and a stem cell transplant is her only hope. But when her parents are tested, a frightening truth emerges. Mindy is not their daughter.Who knows the answers?The race to save Mindy's life means unraveling years of lies. Was she accidentally switched at birth or is there something more sinister at play? The search for the truth will tear a family apart...and someone is going to deadly extremes to protect the family's deepest secrets.With vivid movement through time, Tear Me Apart examines the impact layer after layer of lies and betrayal has on two families, the secrets they guard, and the desperate fight to hide the darkness within.

Sarah‘s out of town with friends tonight, so I am having a beer, playing with fire, and listening to an audiobook. This is the relaxing end to a crappy week that I really needed.

I listened to this book while doing paperwork for the past couple of weeks. I enjoyed the narration, and the story gets more twisted as it unfolds. There‘s murder, kidnapping, family issues, friendship, (extremely) light romance, and an incredibly talented young skier in the middle of it all. Definitely recommended!

So many layers to this story and you never really know who to trust! Mindy's life is broken into pieces by a devastating crash that leads to twist after turn of deceit and half-truths. Just when I thought I had it all figured out; wrong again. Quick read, enthralling twisted thriller.

This one has been in my TBR pile for a few months. It was okay. I didn't think it was as suspenseful as her other books though.

Another good thriller by this author. A seventeen year old girl is injured in a skiing accident and her life unravels as a result, revealing many unnerving mysteries. The characters are all suspicious in this one making it hard to pinpoint who is telling the truth and what the truth is. I liked the suspense that was maintained throughout the book and the ending was definitely a good one.

I loved this book! I found it to be very suspenseful and I didn‘t know what was going on until about halfway through. I found the story to be utterly heartbreaking at times and I felt bad for some of the characters. I definitely recommend this book to any mystery/thriller fan!

Started this audiobook yesterday evening while driving and finished up today while I was getting my hair done. This was such a good book that keep me interested and on the edge of my seat. There are so many twists and turns that I had to keep listening to find out the ending. If you are looking for a good psychological thriller then this is a book that you should definitely read!!

I enjoyed all the twists/secrets in this, even though most of them were easily predicted. I did feel like it was too long, and I normally like long books. I just felt like it dragged a bit. Lauren was annoying. But yes, overall good book!

Good psychological thriller with twists and reveals that keep you guessing. Set in Vail, CO and Nashville, TN (which is close to where I live so that‘s always fun.) A teenage girl who is a world-champion skier has an accident which precipitates a cascade of events that no one saw coming. And I loved the dog 😁🐶

This book is one hell of a ride-secret after secret!Mindy is a skier, she gets injured and the lives of her and everyone around her start to crumble piece by piece. I found most of the characters to be like able and the pacing was great. You just want to keep reading and once the pieces of the puzzle start to fall into place you are just like what? One of the better psychological thrillers I have read recently. Highly recommend! Triggers!

5☆ Riveting family drama w/so much deception flying around it took me on quite a THRILL ride! Also deals w/important issues of mental illness + suicide.
Mindy 17 is an Olympic skiing contender until a downhill crash hospitalizes her w/a broken leg + news she has leukemia. Bad goes to worst, she finds her “parents” aren‘t matches as blood donors. What follows tears her family + life apart. Murders, psychiatric hospitals, dark secrets. Loved it!

RadicalReader @whatshesreadingnow I just started one of his novels thanks to its timely arrival to my ereader I‘ve enjoyed the first chapter so far and HIGHLY RECOMMEND it 1y

What would a mother do to protect her child? In this book, Lauren will do anything and everything to save Mindy. But who and what does she need protection from exactly? This book is a wild ride and proves once again that J T Ellison is a mastermind!!! Absolutely loved this book!!! Highly recommend. 💜💜💜
