Publisher's Summary

My name is Mackenzie Bartholomew, or at least it was. I’m staring at my dead body, lying in a casket. I was a healthy, 39-year-old mother of three.

I have so many questions but very few answers. Was I murdered? Did I commit suicide? I don’t know if I’m in some sort of purgatory or if I’ve gone straight to hell.

I’m stuck somewhere in between life and death, forced to travel back in time to relive moments from my past, ones I’d rather forget. I’m desperate to piece together the details surrounding my death. If I don’t, I fear my soul will never find rest.

Chock full of family drama, secrets, betrayal, and lies, Somewhere in Between is a psychological thriller with wicked twists that will keep you hooked until the last minute

Somewhere in Between

Man, what a story! This book has a lot of back and forth, but is is really needed to get the full story of what happened and what is going on. I saw the ending happening before we got there but it was such a fun listen all the way through. This is a first book from Dawn Hosmer I believe but will definitely not be my last.

addictive and original

I wasn’t entirely sure what direction Hosmer was leading Mackenzie or the listener, but I couldn’t set this down. In fact, it kept me up listening until 2 am on a work night because I needed to know how she died.

A look into domestic abuse and living with a narcissist were raw, factual and enlightening. So many women stay for the children and slowly allow their rights to dwindle. Mackenzie both frustrated me and held me in awe by her bravery and willpower.

The story felt genuine, and the conclusion was one I figured out, but I wasn’t quite sure of the how. I will leave that for you to discover.

Erica Maity narrated. I have to say it was fantastic. From pacing to tone, she captured the essence of the story and helped build on the scenes and suspense. Her character voices were flawless, and she added another level of enjoyment to this thriller.

If you are looking for a fresh psychological thriller, I recommend grabbing this on audio. This was my second title for this author, and I look forward to more.

Depressing.... Very Depressing

The writing in this book was good. The narrator was ok a bit much at times though! The rest of the book well was rather depressing! There was not one part in my opinion that was not depressing in this whole book! I thought several times about stoping the book but wanted to finish it through! I knew the outcome halfway through but wanted to finish the book.

Heartbreaking and intense

This is a very powerful story, told from the perspective of a woman, Mac, who “wakes up” at her funeral, not understanding how she died. We are whisked back and forth between the funeral, and the past, some distant and then moving forward to more recent events until we come to the day she died. We witness, almost “A Christmas Carol” style, the things in her life that led to her various choices, and eventually her death. A narcissistic, horrible, manipulative mother, to a narcissistic, manipulative, abusive husband, we also see how her choices affected her children, as well as the love she felt for them. The story seems to be arcing towards an inevitable ending, but all the while, there are more hints at something more. The ending is bittersweet, as there really can’t be a happy ending when the main character is dead right from the start, and we learn so much throughout the book that makes that fact sadder and sadder. But given that, the ending gives a decent level of closure, and satisfaction.

Wow!!

I’m not sure how the author does this to me, but this is the second book I’ve read of hers and I’m just loving her psychological thrillers!!
The narrator, Erica did a beautiful job portraying Mac’s story! Easy to follow along.
This book is written to blow your mind and leave you speechless at the end. I would recommend this book for mature readers who don’t need to be wary of any trigger warnings. There’s a bit here that could trigger some people. Mackenzie find herself in a deep pickle and just when she thinks she’s made it she finds herself at her own funeral trying to collect all the details of what happens. It was easy to follow along with the “then and now” in the story.

Stunning!

What a refreshing and absolutely thrilling read! I was on the edge of my seat the entire time and had a very hard time "putting this book" down. One part thriller, one part murder mystery, and 100% stellar! Read it, you won't regret it!

Real

This story is definitely realistic with some unexpected twists and turns that are honestly hard to listen to because of the pain. The author takes you on a journey to find the truth...and the truth hurts.

What an emotional ride!

This is one of those books that touches your soul! It’s deep and emotional with so many aspects that could easily relate to real life. You are pulled through the important aspects of a life in such a unique perspective from most books. Loved it!
