✱✱Book Review✱✱ Review Tour: Fever Dream by Britney King

Title: Fever Dream: a Psychological Thriller
Author: Britney King
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Release Date: April 22, 2022

The bestselling author of the “clever spine-tingler” The Secretary returns with an unputdownable thriller following a woman on a desperate search for answers after she’s institutionalized against her will.

The year is 1962, and every night Grace lays her head on her pillow at the Texas State Lunatic Hospital, she reminds herself she is not what they say she is.
Her children and her husband are not dead. They’re searching for her.
Someone knows the truth.
Strangely, that someone is hell-bent on making sure the truth stays buried.
The question is…why?
Meanwhile, Grace has bigger fish to fry, starting with her new roommate.
Elizabeth is certifiable, and she has star status—a deadly combination, Grace realizes.
The kind of woman who has everyone in the palm of her hand, Elizabeth gives even the most menacing of nurses a run for their money, takes bad intentions to a whole new level and makes crazy look seductive as hell.
Grace learns fast: the best way to deal with lunacy is to befriend it. It may be her only ticket out. She also learns there’s more to her new bunkmate than meets the eye. She’s vile, she’s cunning—and possibly faking.
The question is…why?
With riveting twists and a breakneck pace, Fever Dream is a propulsive thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
She's done it again! Every time I start reading a Britney King thriller, I tell myself that she's not going to mess with my mind. I should know better because she gets me every time. Fever Dream is no different. Granted, this is a psychological thriller, and there are things we can't know until this or that particular nugget is given to us. Trying to figure things out as I read is part of the fun with this type of story, and I'm just as entertained when I don't figure things out as when I do.
From the start of the book, we know that Grace is in the Texas State Lunatic Hospital and is suspected of killing her husband and children. Did she? Well, I went back and forth on that, changing my mind every couple of chapters. There were a handful of other characters that were just as confounding, and I don't mind admitting that the twists were whiplash-inducing!
Rather than continue and give something away (this really should be read spoiler-free), I'll move on to praise Britney King's writing once again. No matter how many of her books I read, her writing style never fails to blow me away. She's truly talented, and I don't know if it says more about the author or me, but I love the twisted tales she creates.
