Sunday Synopsis

It's One of UsIt's One of Us by J.T. Ellison
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a convoluted plot for sure!

Olivia is a designer/decorator. Park is a ghost writer. They have been trying to have a child, but IVF and one miscarriage after another leads to bouts of depression and self-blame.

Meanwhile, a woman's dead body is found. The treatment of the body is very similar to a murder that happened when Park was in college, a murder for which he was questioned since he had been dating the victim.

Then, things get complicated. Detectives start coming around because DNA shows that Park is the father of the murderer. He and Olivia have no children. How could he have a son? Then we learn that Park donated to a sperm bank many years ago. The facility is only supposed to use the sperm on a finite amount of embryos, but they obviously did not follow that rule. Park is the father of many, and one of them is the murderer.

Olivia is devastated by this news. Even though she has her own secrets.

This is a very brief summary of the events in this book, but it has such depth and so many layers to the story, that to reveal it all would spoil the story for others, and I don't want to do that. The plot is twisted. The only part I didn't like was the epilogue where one of the big questions about who murdered the college girl back when Park was questionedin college. I won't give it away, but I did not like the scenario in the epilogue. It didn't add up. But the rest of the book was good: hard to put down!

  1. It certainly sounds like a situation to make an infertile couple's journey into an even worse nightmare.
