I had no idea what to expect when I started this book because I haven’t read any other work by Jessica McHugh. I am going to change that now because I’m going to find EVERY book she has written and read them all!
All I can say is Wow! Though the storyline was perturbing it was an absolute page turner and I really didn’t want to put it down. I felt every emotion during my read… happy, sad, scared, angry, confused and frustrated to name but a few.
There's no doubt Jessica McHugh knows how to build strong characters and a vivid setting. I was completely taken in by this book, I didn’t know who I could trust! Those I thought were innocent in one sentence I doubted in the next such was the complexity of the plot. The tension and suspense stayed with me to the very last page….and beyond!
What an intriguing and satisfying read.
