Book Review: Somewhere in Between by Dawn Hosmer

My name is Mackenzie Bartholomew, or at least it was. I’m staring at my dead body, lying in a casket. I was a healthy, thirty-nine-year-old, mother of three.
I have so many questions but very few answers.

Was I murdered? Did I commit suicide? I don’t know if I’m in some sort of purgatory or if I’ve gone straight to hell.

I’m stuck somewhere in between life and death, forced to travel back in time to relive moments from my past, ones I’d rather forget. I’m desperate to piece together the details surrounding my death. If I don’t, I fear my soul will never find rest.

Chock full of family drama, secrets, betrayal, and lies, Somewhere in Between is a Psychological Thriller with wicked twists that will keep you hooked until the last page.

My Thoughts

Hosmer delivers yet another hit with Somewhere in Between. A story of betrayal, family secrets, lies, and broken trust, we follow Mackenzie’s story to the truth of her death. A shocking story that will leave you at the edge of your seat until the very end.

Mackenzie (Mack) Bartholomew wakes up to find herself staring at herself in a casket. Cut down in the prime of her life, she’s faced with the reality that she’s no longer among the living. A mother of three, she’s faced with fear and worry for what this means for her children. Her family. Mack is forced to travel back in the past and to the present over and over again to relive her deepest and darkest horrors that made up her life. Mixed in with joy, we find she’s reliving all the moments that she wishes could’ve been different. We find her life isn’t what she’d hoped. Sometimes, we can’t see things clearly when we are too close up. All the moments that she relives, she realizes how in denial she was. We can hide behind denial but it reveals some harsh truths when we finally see the big picture.

I found myself in tears at some moments, seething with anger at others, and full of compassion and sympathy during a lot of it. It’s a harrowing story that will leave you breathless until the very end. Amazing story by Hosmer and I can’t wait to see what she writes next.
