Review: This Is Our Story


Five went in. Four came out.
No one knows what happened that morning at River Point. Five boys went hunting. Four came back. The boys won’t say who fired the shot that killed their friend; the evidence shows it could have been any one of them.
Kate Marino’s senior year internship at the district attorney’s office isn’t exactly glamorous—more like an excuse to leave school early that looks good on college applications. Then the DA hands her boss, Mr. Stone, the biggest case her small town of Belle Terre has ever seen. The River Point Boys are all anyone can talk about. Despite their damning toxicology reports the morning of the accident, the DA wants the boys’ case swept under the rug. He owes his political office to their powerful families.
Kate won’t let that happen. Digging up secrets without revealing her own is a dangerous line to walk; Kate has her own reasons for seeking justice for Grant. As investigates with Stone, the aging prosecutor relying on Kate to see and hear what he cannot, she realizes that nothing about the case—or the boys—is what it seems. Grant wasn’t who she thought he was, and neither is Stone’s prime suspect. As Kate gets dangerously close to the truth, it becomes clear that the early morning accident might not have been an accident at all—and if Kate doesn’t uncover the true killer, more than one life could be on the line…including her own.

This is Our Story is so suspenseful and will literally keep you on the edge of your seat. The author did on outstanding job with the anticipation and build up! This book kept me guessing and guessing until…the end.
This book takes readers to a small town of Belle Terre, where secrets are built and will soon be revealed! There lives Kate, a high school intern working for the court house. How cool is that! Then one morning, five boys (also known as the River Point boys) go hunting but only four come back. Who killed the fifth one? None of the River Point boys spill anything. Soon, Kate is tangled into this big mess, trying to uncover the murder.
I love this book! One thing I just have to point out, is the beautiful cover! I love how there are five shadows that portray the five boys.
Kate is such a great character! She’s so determined and I love her perseverance and strong!

I also love love love the romance! Eek! So surprising and swoon worthy! Ugh, you HAVE to read this book.
Another thing that made this novel wonderful is the fact that the author includes the interviews and interrogations. This is SUCH a great way to get to know each character! I also love the different POV! Usually, I don’t like the different POVs, but Ashely made it work! Love it!
If you are looking for suspenseful and thrilling read, be sure to chose this one!

  2. Nice review! I pre-ordered this book before it was released and was entered into a giveaway to win a signed copy along with some awesome goodies from the author… and I won! So I have a signed copy of this book sitting on my shelf waiting to be read. I’ve had every intention to read it before now but life (and other books) have gotten in the way. Hope to get to it soon though!
