Many thanks to Tracy Fenton and Compulsive Readers for my spot on this Blog Tour.
Quite a twisty read with multiple timelines and dual POV of a journalist Isla and a woman working in company ‘Atypical’ where the murder victim Nicole too worked.
My first book by author Amy Heydenrych, I enjoyed the story as it took me through various nooks and crannies before it led me to the cliff edge and dropped me straight down. A free fall it was which felt glorious, most unexpected end to the story.
The writing did pull me in slowly as I got to understand how everyone worked in the company. Masks in place were slowly revealed as Freya tried to take careful steps in the minefield. On the other hand, journalist Isla too had her work cut out as she used all her resources to investigate who had killed Nicole and why?
I quite liked Isla’s determination, she was on the backfoot yet came up fighting. Each of the women had gone through their lot in life including sexual abuse. I didn’t take to Freya or any of the men in the story. All were shown to be sleazeballs. The timelines were all over the place which could have been streamlined better.
Overall, it was a fun book which quite entertained me over the weekend.
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.

What if a prank leads to murder?
When Freya arrives at her dream job with the city’s hottest start-up, she can’t wait to begin a new and exciting life, including dating her new colleague Jay. However, Nicole, Jay’s ex and fellow employee, seems intent on making her life a misery.
After a big deadline, where Nicole continually picks on her, Freya snaps and tells Jay about the bullying and together they concoct a revenge prank. The next morning, Nicole is found dead in her apartment . . .
Is this just a prank gone wrong? Or does Freya know someone who is capable of murder – and could she be next?
