"She’s Not Sorry" delivers a gripping narrative of secrets and consequences, weaving together the lives of single mom and ICU nurse Meghan Michaels with the enigmatic Caitlin, whose traumatic brain injury hides a deeper mystery. As Meghan delves deeper, the line between ally and adversary blurs, culminating in a suspenseful climax that keeps readers guessing until the very end. With its well-drawn characters and intricate plot twists, "She’s Not Sorry" is a compelling read that will leave you questioning everything and everyone.

*Thanks to NetGalley for the review copy.

Didn’t see all this coming.

She’s Not Sorry is multiple plot lines individually woven into one story. It’s the story of Meghan and Nat, long lost acquaintances from high school, of Meghan and Luke, co-workers in the ICU, of Meghan and Sienna, her sassy 16-year old, of Meghan and Caitlyn, the comatose patient Meghan has been charged with caring for, and Meghan and Ben, her ex-husband. Along with all of these subplots, there is a crazy man running around Chicago raping and now murdering women. The plot gets thicker half way through the book when the reader learns nothing is as it seems.

Mary Kubica has done a wonderful job keeping multiple balls in the air while spinning plates of deception at the same time. She leaves the doors open to all the characters so that the reader has no idea who to trust, including the protagonist. There are twists and unforeseen turns that will keep you guessing throughout and even the ending is left with a door slightly ajar - could there be a follow-up coming?

My first pass at Mary Kubica and I’m glad it was She’s Not Sorry. This psychological thriller will keep you turning the page. I must admit, I sort of sped read through the last few chapters to find out what was going to happen.

Thank you to NetGalley and Harlequin Trade Publishing for this advanced reader copy. My review is my own opinion and was not compensated monetarily.

Can you really keep a secret or does someone else always know it too?

A divorced woman, an abused woman, and a woman in a coma.

Which one of those three will be the one saying that she’s not sorry?

We meet Meghan, a nurse in the ICU and divorced, Nat who is abused and who meets Morgan at a divorce support group, and we meet Caitlin, who was pushed off of a bridge and is now in a coma.

We get very detailed information about each character, but nothing that makes a connection to the three characters and nothing that is earth shattering about the storyline until fifty percent into the book.

But, once the fifty percent mark hits, the tension is heightened and you will be biting your nails.

Who could be behind all of the things happening, and how did Meghan get herself in the middle of it all?

Another good, but slow burn by Mary Kubica with an oh my goodness, unbelievable surprise. 4/5

Thank you to the publisher for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
