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.
The Two Lila Bennetts is a dual narrative following main protagonist Lila Bennett as in one life she is kidnapped, in another she is free but both lives lead down a dark path..
I love this kind of novel where choices you make lead in different directions, turn left turn right but maybe fate is fate…
This is extremely well plotted, addictive and unpredictable, it is a book about where our life choices lead us and whether those choices define who we are. A good person, a bad person, maybe somewhere Inbetween. Lila is forced in both strands to put herself under a microscope in both her personal and professional life…
It is very engaging and often thought provoking, a one sitting read that is very good indeed.
