Suzanne approached me on Instagram and offered me a copy of her book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Suzanne because WOW! – I really enjoyed this book. I gave it 4/5 Stars.
Full disclosure: It is a thriller with quite distressing and triggering scenes in terms of abuse, language and rape. However, I do believe this was handled in the right way for the need of the story. I also think it is importance to raise awareness of these issues.
The book was jam packed full of juicy twists and turns, right up until the last page. Some that I saw coming and some that I certainly did not. I don’t want to say too much about them, because I don’t want to spoil for others.
Seriously though, if you are after a thriller where you can’t guess the ending, this is the one.
I would recommend this book!
