If you follow my blog then you'll know that I've made it a goal to read more often. The husband bought this book for me a few Amazon orders ago and I finally got around to reading it this week. Yes, that's right, this week. I started and finished this book within a few days; mainly due to more commuting time and one really horrendous night spent in heartburn hell, but really this book was also that good.
Amazon describes it as: A gripping psychological thriller for fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train.
The Descriptive text describes it as follows: Leah Mills lives a life of a fugitive – kept on the run by one terrible day from her past. It is a lonely life, without a social life or friends until – longing for a connection – she meets Julian. For the first time she dares to believe she can live a normal life.
Then, on the fourteenth anniversary of that day, she receives a card. Someone knows the truth about what happened. Someone who won’t stop until they’ve destroyed the life Leah has created.
But is Leah all she seems? Or does she deserve everything she gets?
Everyone has secrets. But some are deadly.
I definitely didn't know what to expect when I started reading. The book starts off pretty intense and interesting and continues through twists and turns the entire time. I remember being near the end of the book (according to my Kindle) and I kept wondering when things would be explained. For a moment, I panicked thinking it would be a series and I'd have to spend another few days and eight more dollars before I could find out what happened. Luckily this wasn't the case and all my questions were answered by the end. That being said the ending was semi anti-climatic and open-ended (possible sequel?) but overall I liked the idea of the book and it was definitely well written and suspenseful.
