Hidden in the past, the story was all about equalizing the hurt in the present. You could call it revenge even.
Frankie had redefined herself to escape her past. But as they said it always caught up. And now Frankie was scrambling to maintain a semblance of order in the world of Chas that her life had exploded into. Strange things started happening to her.
Written in dual timelines, I liked how Elena Wilkes had etched her into a complex human with layers hidden in. There were twists and turns in all the truths of the past.
As the author unfurled the story, each page led me into a land of insecurity as I truly didn’t know who was telling me the truth. Loved the fact that the truth kept shifting in every page. Kept me on my toes.
Shades of good and bad in every character were shown, which raised the story to the perfect pitch. Almost. 2 niggles. The first section was very murky didn’t know where the story was going. Had I not known the talent of this author, I would have given up. Frankie was so difficult to love in the entire book. But that could be how the author wanted to portray her.
But as the story took shape and distrust mounted up, it was so easy to get caught up in the thrill of this book. Quite a pleasurable breakfast read.

A life built on lies – now the truth could destroy her
Frankie Turner knows what it’s like to be unwanted; she was brought up in care. Now as a social worker to kids in the same system, she’s someone who understands … But Frankie is hiding an unthinkable secret: one that may have its roots in the murder of a young, beautiful woman fifteen years ago.
Yet the past is out there. Someone knows what Frankie is hiding – and now they’re back to shatter her perfectly constructed life, terrorizing her with menacing letters and silent calls to the house she shares with husband Alex.
She may have reinvented herself, but Frankie’s past is back to haunt her – and now, there’s nowhere to run.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
