This is my third book by this author and I shouldn’t be surprised that I liked it so much. My first read was Playing Nice and the second one I read was Believe Me and both were five-star reads for me. And oh boy was this one something else! I literally could not put it down.

There was just something about this family drama that had me glued to the pages, it was like a car crash you can’t help but slow down and take a look at. The concept is nothing new; long lost daughter, given up for adoption, shows up unexpectedly. But this isn’t your typical family reunited plot. This daughter knows her biological mother’s secret and has a dastardly plan to use it to get what she wants.

I wouldn’t put this book in the typical psychological thriller category and even though it is more of a domestic drama it did deliver the thrills. It was a bit over the top but in the best way possible and it has a lot of entertainment value. The chapters are short so it amps up the adrenaline and the multiple points of view give the reader a well-rounded look inside the three main characters’ heads. The subject matter makes for a complex and emotional read, a very tense one at that. I have one more book by this author to acquire and add to my growing to-be-read pile.

This book is now available for purchase.
