Pharaoh's Star by Vera Jane Cook

1 star
Sometimes, the ambiguity of a man is better left ambiguous. Nick and Jenna Dowling buy a second home in Upstate New York but this dream of a lifetime turns out to be anything but relaxing when a strange and mystical experience on a dark, forgotten back road leads Nick on a frantic search for answers about the reality of his identity. Frantic to explain his mysterious amnesia, Jenna Dowling calls upon a therapist for her husband, while Nick befriends an alien abduction expert. Each desperately searches for the truth, but in the end, it is not the truth that sets them free.

Review: Pharaoh's Star is a chilling gripping tale about life, marriage and how the strangest things can sending an entire life into a tailspin. The main characters, Nick and Jenna are flawed, relate-able characters that soon drag you deep into their story and you will quickly find yourself gripped until the very last page. Vera Jane Cook has a wonderfully unique writing style that I couldn't help but enjoy. I cannot wait to read more by this fantastic author!
