But will Louise discover the darker side to Darcy, before it’s too late…



My review

What can I say about this author’s books? Every time I pick one up, I am captivated from the beginning. I so like her style it makes me want to hide somewhere so I can read the book without being disturbed.

I love the way she can create crazy people and manages to let them act very sane and controlled until little by little she shows their true colors.

But often in every mad person, a sad one is hidden. I can’t help feeling sorry for them and their past. If only they would choose a different path in order to achieve a happy life. If they would not be so blinded by revenge, it would cause a lot less heartbreak but then of course, we would not have such brillant stories like this one.

I think it’s rather clear that I was, once again, a happy and grateful reader, forgetting about the rest of the world for a few hours. 5 stars.

Thank you, Shalini Boland, Bookouture and Netgalley.
