This is my fourth book by this author, The Weekend Away, In Her Eyes, and especially The Stalker were all amazing books and four or five-star reads for me. I was so disappointed with this one and it is a hard book to review. On the one hand, I was furiously flipping pages anxious to see what happened next but on the other hand, it was a little too far-fetched for me. I was really enjoying this until the halfway mark when things got a little out there.

I liked the two different timelines and that they finally converge into an explosive revelation. The writing is definitely suspenseful and the short chapters ramped up the tension, I love when a book can make me feel apprehensive. The unknown is what drew me into this story and I was able to read it in a single sitting because it was so engaging.

I like popcorn thrillers just as much as the next person but I have to have SOME plausibility on my reading journey and this had very little. The author does earn some stars for how compelling the story was and I appreciated what she was trying to do with the whole #metoo movement thing, she just didn’t hit this one out of the park like her others.
