This book took me exactly one day to finish. I literally couldn’t put it down!! Before choosing this book as my Book of the Month choice I did a lot of spoiler free research on it. Almost everything that I had read said that there a huge OMG/WTF moment at the end and boy, were they right!
I have to say I was very disappointed at the end of this book because I felt as though the author gave up and kinda just said, “Ok.. I’m tired of writing. BOOM, ending.” It was sudden and way to far fetched for me to ever want to pick up and read again. With a new ending this book would have been a 5 star rating but those last couple chapters absolutely destroyed a beautiful book.
When first reading this book you will think that it’s going to be about domestic violence, which always makes a good mystery/thriller novel, but be careful who you choose to take sides with in this book because it will keep you on your toes and always guessing. No matter if you love the ending or you throw your book across the room because you are angry (guilty) this book will be in the back of your thoughts for weeks after reading it. It is a must read just for the detail and character build up and I would recommend that anyone who likes to read mystery/thriller novels should go their nearest library or bookstore and read/buy this immediately. I will definitely be picking up another one of her books just for her writing style and ability to make her characters so realistic!
