Review: This book receives 4.5 stars out of 5! This book had me on the edge of my seat the whole time! I didn’t know which way to think or what was going to happen next. This book was split between two point of views and usually I don’t enjoy that much but definitely did with this book! I didn’t see the ending coming at all. I was in complete shock! I read this book in less than a day. The only reason I am not giving this book 5 stars is because I felt a little left hanging in the end but that could’ve just been my preference of wanting more! I will definitely be checking out the author’s previous work! I am so glad that I read Silent Lies by Kathryn Croft. Highly Recommended!
