Three people. One accident. And several shocking twists…
What a quick, easy read. I could not put it down. There were a couple of small early twists. I love the foreshadowing here and there. Have you ever just wanted to scream what are you doing?? I started to think this part way through. Jo, how could you be that stupid? So many lies and secrets. From everyone.
I loved the short chapters and the countdown leading up to the accident. I think the twist at the end was great but the ultimate ending may not have been believable, but it did not stop me from enjoying the book.
