Blog Tour: Three Rules: Marie Drake

18585485
Quoted from Three Rules:
“I have learned three rules in my life: 1.) The most dangerous people in the world are not always strangers. 2.) The scariest things imaginable are not those that can kill you, but those you can live through. And probably the most prominent: 3.) The most horrible possibility is not what could happen to you, but what you could become – I became a killer.” ~Hope Wellman

Brief Description:
Hope Wellman has a childhood full of horrific memories, a bone chilling recurring nightmare, and a persistent paranoid sense of being followed that she would rather keep repressed. Is evil reaching from beyond the grave to capture the tattered remnants of her soul once and for all, is it only a machination of her disturbed mind, or is there something happening more sinister than even she can imagine?
Attending the funeral of her abuser is the first step in putting her life back together. She struggles with the fact she never told anyone what happened to her, and that the grave they are mourning over is empty. She'd find it a lot easier to move on and believe in the future if he were in the box, ready to be covered with dirt. She fears the last thread of her sanity has snapped when she sees Lucas everywhere she turns, and can't escape a recurring nightmare. Is her tormentor alive, or is she imagining it? Is her dream triggered by past fears or is it a prediction of the future?

I received this book to give an honest review as part of a blog tour.
It was hard to rate this book I was so intrigued with the story line that I wanted to give it a full 5 rating but as it progressed I went from 4.5 to a solid 4. 
My heart broke for Hope and what she had to go through during her childhood. And let me say this I am glad there was not any type of details as I do believe I would have been crying my eyes out. 
I enjoyed the suspense within the story line, I enjoyed the love that Joey had for Hope even though it took them years to bring it to light. 
The author did a good job with writing about the child abuse and making it to where she was sensitive to the readers. There was plenty of twist and turns and made me wonder is the dead man really dead? And will Hope's secret ever get out? You do go back and forth from the present to the past but it is not where you would be confused. 

What made me drop my rating is how Hope seemed to handle some of the situations. The way that she did act sometimes I just couldn't really see it happening that way. Also when she found out the truth of her past I didn't get how she didn't know who this person was. I could understand her blocking it out but how come she didn't just know that it was this person. They didn't seem to be a like in any way but I could be wrong about that.
If you are looking for a good read one that will keep you wondering on what is truly going on then give this book a try.

I would like to connect with other authors and Goodread members. Send me a friends request. :)
I live in a small town near Lake Ontario with my husband, and our four boys. It is a wonderful place to be. Sunsets on the lake are inspiring. My first love has always been my family and children. I ran my own home daycare for over 10 years, and then my husband and I dedicated ourselves to being foster parents. We fostered 15 children over 5 years. At times, we were raising as many as 8 children in our home. 
I spend as much time reading as possible. I love a good romance, suspense, thriller, or mystery novel. I am a crochet fanatic. I design my own patterns and enjoy crocheting for friends, family, and charity. 
I love to cook and bake, especially when making up a new recipe. I am addicted to the game Words With Friends. 
While juggling all my boys' sporting events, academic, musical, and other extra curricular activities, and running a small home based business designing crochet afghan patterns, I try to squeeze in some time for writing each day.I am passionate about writing. I write for me. I write because I love the way it makes me feel. I write because I have stories to tell. I write because seeing what is on my mind spilling out on paper feeds my soul. I hope to contribute something readers can enjoy.
