One twisted tale which held me in its clutches without giving me a break. Whew!! Anna and Vicky were best friends from school days. Anna married David had two kids lived a happy life, and then died in a car accident. Who killed her? How did the accident occur? Vicky entered her home, took over Anna’s duties, both kids and husband. And wrote letters filled with secrets of the past to dead friend Anna.
Dawn Goodwin has done it again, written a shivery tale where the unspoken words told a different story. I could read between the lines to understand the aura that the author had created. The characters were all unlikable, but there was a strange friction between them, almost an addiction if you could say. They didn’t like each other but couldn’t stay away. I loved this weird atmosphere as it was in darkness that secrets fermented and soon covered everything with a slimy surface.
The characters had moments of darkness and light, but all of them played with fire. There are times when one cannot stop looking at fire, it is hypnotic. The same happened to me while reading this. Dawn’s words hypnotized me and put me in a trance where all I knew was getting to the main reveal.
Was it all worth it? Me reading the book – YES! The characters playing their games – not so much!! Read the book to understand this line.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
