  • Good twist

    By missDube
    I’m new to this writer I really enjoyed this book the twist at the end was unexpected
  • Average

    By hannahcscott
    The story at the beginning was good, I like the way it was written but it was obvious from quite early on what was going to happen. The ending seemed a bit random and abrupt.
  • That twist though!

    By Book Worm Ahoy
    Fantastic book! Intriguing and well paced with a great twist that I didn’t see coming. I wish I could forget it and read it all over again.
  • I inhaled this book!

    Where to start!! From the get go this book was amazing! Quick and easy to read, I haven’t been so glued to a book in a long time and the plot twist was ace! Highly advise to add this to the list, you won’t be disappointed.
  • A good read in quarantine

    My hobby for reading has just picked up again during lockdown and i’m loving it. This book had a great amount of suspense but not the ending I was hoping for unfortunately. Although I would still recommend for you to read it and judge for yourselves.
  • Don’t usually leave reviews..

    First time reading this genre of book and it will not be my last. Amazing story full of twists that had me gripped from the start! Will be very disappointed if this is not a TV series or film anytime soon. MUST MUST MUST READ!

    Read start to finish in 1 day. Gripping. Gobsmacked by huge twist didn’t see it coming until very last second.

    No book has truly shocked me as much as this one did. I had to force myself to stop reading the book because I don’t want to finish too quick. This was an amazing read ana a book I’ll never forget !!!! WORTH IT
