✱✱Book Review✱✱ Convince Me by Nina Sadowsky

A charismatic man’s death exposes the secrets he kept, revealing him to family and friends as an unrepentant pathological liar in this explosive thriller from film producer and author Nina Sadowsky.

Convince Me will keep readers guessing until the very end.”—New York Times bestselling author Karin Slaughter

Justin Childs is handsome, likeable, smart. A devoted son to his mother, Carol; a loving husband to his wife, Annie; and a sure-footed, savvy business partner to his best friend from college, Will. To so many, the perfect man.

He’s also a liar. And now he’s dead.

When Justin’s body is retrieved from the wreckage of a car accident, his death leaves his loved ones with more questions than answers. In life, his charm and easygoing nature inspired trust, making him friends wherever he went. Now that he’s gone, the cracks begin to show: disturbing discrepancies in his company’s financials, unaccounted-for absences, a medical record that appears to be entirely fabricated. 

As the secrets and betrayals pile up, Annie, Carol, and Will realize their beloved Justin was not the man they thought he was. And why was he found dead with Valium in his system when he notoriously detested drugs? Was the crash that killed him really an accident—or did Justin finally get caught in something he couldn’t lie his way out of? 

Convince Me is a chilling look at what makes a sociopath in an age of untruth—and a high-octane, surprising read to its very last page.


Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

First, I've got to say that I absolutely love the dedication in this book I won't quote it here because of the language, and you know, some things tend to get dinged on some sites. But I will say that even if I hadn't liked the story, that dedication would've received an extra star. However, I did like the book. It's twisty enough to make your head spin, and with each new chapter comes a new revelation. The story isn't exactly realistic but darned if it didn't keep me turning the pages. Some of it isn't hard to figure out, at least in part, but that didn't diminish the story for me in the slightest. This is one of those edge of your seat, can't wait to see what's next, heart in your throat books, and was perfect for a late-night read.
