Sunday Synopsis


The InmateThe Inmate by Freida McFadden
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Brooke Sullivan's parents have died and left her the house she grew up in. She returns to town and takes a position as a nurse practitioner at the men's prison where she's been warned not to get too close to the prisoners. The problem is, one of the prisoners is her ex-boyfriend Shane and father of her child, though he doesn't know it. He's in prison for murder, and Brooke's testimony was the strongest evidence that convicted him.

Brooke has also begun seeing her son's school assistant principal with whom she was best friends growing up. He has always warned her that Shane is dangerous. And when he began spending more time with Brooke, some strange things begin happening and Brooke thinks that maybe the wrong man is in prison, that it wasn't Shane but Tim who killed her friends.

This novel has some twists and turns. You think you have figured it out, then there is a twist. But I do think part of the ending was a little ridiculous due to lack of motive from the character.

Freida McFadden is a new author to me, and I like the way this book had me thinking one thing, then the oppositve would happen. She's not as polished as an author as some others yet, but I think that will improve as she continues to publish.
