5 Stars for Altered Beginnings by Destiny Booze:
A tense read

I started Altered Beginnings on Saturday morning, and finished it
Sunday night. I was caught up in the story from the prologue, and
didn’t want to put it down.

I’m not a great book reviewer, tending to lean towards "I loved it"
or "I was bored". And in the interest of full disclosure, I will state
that I follow author Destiny Booze on Twitter, and she gifted me with a
copy of this book.

So I’m very happy to honestly say I did love it.

Leigh Lawson was raised in an orphanage for the first few years of
her life, then placed with a foster family. We first meet Leigh in the
orphanage, then we fast forward to her as a college graduate who has
received a graduation party invitation from her best friend in the
small town she grew up in. We learn that Leigh left town right after
high school graduation, and that the whole town hated her, and
apparently still do. We don’t know all the circumstances yet of her
leaving, and those unfold over the course of the story.

There are two men, her foster brother, Shawn, and a reporter,
Jason. We think Shawn is a good guy and Jason a bad guy. Then we are
given evidence that maybe it’s the other way around. And then more
evidence to the contrary, and for much of the book you aren’t sure who
is the good guy, who is the bad guy, if they are both good guys, or
both bad guys. It makes for a roller coaster ride.

The violence in the book is a little more than I’m accustomed to in
a romantic suspense story, but it’s not gratuitous or presented in
sickening detail. It’s just there and fits into the world the
characters are involved in.

All in all, I would definitely recommend it, and I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.
