Review:

This book was definitely an interesting one. As someone who normally doesn’t read pyshcological thrillers, it captured my attention surprisingly well.

Starting off with the character of Tessa, I loved how she was kind of an unreliable narrator. I could never really tell if she was telling the truth when she was talking in the flashback scenes. She definitely developed as a character the more the book went on. I would have hated to be put in the place where she was with losing 2 kids, her husband separating from her, almost being arrested due to a psychotic break down and then to have a little boy show up on her doorstep claiming to be her son with all that going on. I would have gone crazy. Great character though.

As far as the plot, it was entertaining. Nothing about it drew me out of the story. I was kept interested the entire time I was reading it. It was slow at times and it kind of felt a little repetitive but other than that I really enjoyed it.

Overall, this was a good thriller. I think that if you are just getting into the genre like I am, this might be a good one to start off with. Its fast paced but is able to keep you entertained the entire time. Great book!

RATING: 4/5
