Definitely a 5 star read! If you love a good thriller this is for you, I had such a hard time putting it down and more than once stayed up till the wee hours of the morning to read just one more chapter. Not good when you get up at 6 and work 12 hour shifts. The story is that good though.
Told from alternating POVs with characters that are so insecure and controlling, it's impossible to know who is telling the truth, the twists kept me guessing and wanting to finish the book to know the ending which, by the way, was mind blowing. Easy to get drawn into this chilling tale.
I received a copy of this book free from Harper Collins in exchange for an honest review.
