You’re not who you say you are. Neither is she.
She thinks she knows me.
She believes my marriage is falling apart at the seams, that my husband can barely look me in the eyes. She thinks I’m desperate for a baby, that my longing for a family keeps me up at night. As much as I hate to admit it, all of this is true.
She thinks I listen to her advice, that I care about her opinion. That couldn’t be further from the truth.
Because she has no idea who I am. She has no clue that I know everything.
I know her secret. I know that she did the unforgivable. I know how many lives she ruined.
I know exactly what she did. And I’m here for her.
Another author that manages to kidnap me and keep me prisoner between the pages of her book!
This story has to many twists and revelations that I did not know anymore whether I was coming or going.
In the beginning it seems like a normal story without a lot going on but little by little you see the twisted minds coming to the surface.
Who is for real and who is the most twisted of them all? When you believe one of them, a little bit later on you realise it was the wrong person to believe. So you start feeling sorry for the other one, but are they telling the truth or are they decieving you as well?
Who is genuine? Who is the culprit? Who is the one to feel sorry for and who is the one you have to blame?
The story was so captivating that I kept flipping the pages like there was no tomorrow! I loved it loved it loved it!
Those psychological thrillers make you realise that some crazy people do not only live on paper, but they live in our real world as well. I knock wood that I will never have to meet one in real life. I’m happy for them to remain locked up between the pages of those amazingly good books. 5 stars
Thank you, Ruth Heald and Bookouture
