Pretty Masks by C.A. Bell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
::..Reviewed for Red's Midnight Readers..::
I was given an ARC of this in exchange for an honest review. I gave it 5 stars.
Pretty Masks was a fantastic little surprise. I was not expecting what C.A Bell delivered so impeccably.
It is surprisingly quite dark which for me was one of the reasons I absolutely LOVED it. It's raw and it's gritty and it delivers quite a deep and powerful message in it's few short pages. The concept of this book is rather interesting, that we all have this mask that hides the truth beneath.
Packed full with twists and turns and suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I had goosebumps reading this.
The only thing that would have made this story even better for me? Is if it had been a full length novel.
C.A. Bell never disappoints and Pretty Masks is no different, so go ahead and one click.
Masking a problem doesn’t fix it. No matter how long you keep it covered.
We all hide behind masks. Whether that be a forced smile to a loved one after a long day. A sympathetic frown of concern to someone that doesn’t really matter to you. Or a professional face at work after an almighty row at home. The fact is, we all do it. We do it because we want to be prettier on the outside than we truly are on the inside. We do it to hide the cracks that have formed due to life. But what about the people who are forced to wear masks? The people who are forced to hide their true colours because society says so?
Life has thrown its fair share of crap at Lois Johnston, and the one thing that has kept her sane and going for the last seven years is her husband, Nathan. But what happens when the one person that is keeping you safe from yourself leaves, taking not only your heart, but your sanity with them as well?
For the first time in a long time Lois is about to remove the mask that was forced upon her years ago. But what’s matured underneath after years of heartache and hiding is something even uglier than before. Life has twisted her into a monster, and she’s about to set it free.
