My Thoughts & Review
Wow!!! LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!
The story had me gripped right from the start. I didn’t want it to end but at the same time I wanted to get to the end to find out what happens. It’s a very atmospheric psychological thriller.
The plot had many twists and turns that kept me guessing till the very end.
This was my first C. L. Taylor book and I thought the writing was really good. It felt simple and easy to follow yet at the same time it had a lot of tension in the way it was written, and I flew through the pages. I also thought that the pacing was great it didn’t slow and this kept me turning pages.
I also liked how the character Anna developed as the book progresses. It was really interesting to see the development of Anna’s characters and the others through the back stories, especially when it comes to learning and reading about the other characters.
This was a fab read. If you’re looking for a fast paced, unputdownable psychological thriller this is definitely a book that I recommend. I can’t wait to read more books by C.L. Taylor.
I would like to thank the publishers Avon Books UK and NetGalley for providing me with an eARC in return for an honest and unbiased review.
