Review: This is going to be a really tough review for me because I am very conflicted about this book. I really enjoyed the storyline and how much twists and turns the author put in this story. This a very suspenseful thriller and can see why it’s so highly rated. The problem was I figured out everything from the beginning. I know so many other reviewers were completely thrown off guard and completly can see why everyone kept guessing. I don’t want to give any spoilers away but I can say I’ve been in a circumstance so was able to know where things were going. I was able to recognize early clues right off the back. I think this book will do really well and definitely recommend it. The reason I’m giving it 3.5 stars is because I knew everything that was going to happen so it lessened my experience but it was still very enjoyable. 95% of people I’m sure would not be able to keep up with all the twists and turns and this would be a very satisfying mystery. I also didn’t really enjoy how they made the effects of main character’s trauma look. The reason this review is so hard is because if it wasn’t a trigger for me this would have been 5+ stars. I can’t say the trigger without it being a spoiler but I think many would love picking up this psychological thriller and will love the twists and turns! Jennifer Jaynes does a really great job of putting a story together. Sorry if this review was a little confusing but overall this is a good book. Top grade thriller!
