Loneliness could make us vulnerable, and this book proved that.
Shay was lonely, downsized from her job and losing her roommate to love, she was just about to take the subway when she witnessed a suicide. More shaken than she thought she followed the victim’s life. In the meantime, the Moore sisters entered her life, bringing joy and making her feel not so alone. Then began the real story when things started happening around her.
My first book by the dynamic duo, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, I was completely immersed in the story. The web of suspense slowly clinched its tendrils around me as I turned the pages.
Shay was on a merry-go-round which seemed to be too good to be true. And you know what happens on such a trip. You almost can never get off. Many a time I wanted to poke the main character a warning, but tapping on my kindle was all I did.
The dynamic duo’s writing was like a trap, waiting to capture me. Short, snappy chapters unfurled the past and present of the many characters, and each brought a tangy spice to the overall tale.
A cat and mouse atmosphere soon embroiled the book, where my heart pumped hard at the situation that unfolded in front of me. Fast pace and a plot which held me enthralled kept me going until my vision all but blurred. And the last chapter brought out the twist which I so wanted and my vengeant heart was at peace. And I was blessedly alone.
Whew!! I survived the tale, now I am off to bed to rest my eyes.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
All my reviews can be read here
You probably know someone like Shay Miller. She wants to find love, but it eludes her. She wants to be fulfilled, but her job is a dead end. She wants to belong, but her life is becoming increasingly isolated.
You probably don’t know anyone like the Moore sisters. They have an unbreakable circle of friends. They live a life of glamour and perfection. They always get what they desire.
Shay thinks she wants their life.
But what they really want is hers.
