Oh man!! What a clever piece of writing. Author Roz Nay was quite a trickster, she managed to fool me completely. Lies and truth were amalgamated so well in the writing that I couldn’t decipher either one. I was still left breathless while writing this review.
Two sisters and multiple secrets in the past and present. One was in trouble and pregnant, and the other secure but unwilling. The veracity of their words were doubted, and their doubts were revealed. It was a plot which soon twisted on itself.
My first book by this talented author, I loved how she made me see one facet of the story while reading and the complete opposite when I looked back on the same lines. Honesty and deception were two sides of the same coin.
The story seemed innocuous to begin with. I quite liked the doubts created in my mind about the characters. The author made me walk in the light while all I was doing was meandering in the shadows. A clever play of storyline which shocked and delighted me. A cackle or two escaped my lips in awe in honor of the evil mind that wrote this story.
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.
