Always trust your very basic instincts or prepare for the consequences
It was surreal returning to work after a five-month enforced sabbatical following the suspicious death of my best friend Livvy at a work event. I was grateful for the time away to grieve and had slotted straight back in work But a surprise awaited my return. Amanda Dowd, Livvys replacement, was firmly entrenched as my new flatmate in the company apartment. Something didnt feel right, I felt on edge. But everyone seemed to love Amanda.
Even my ex-Jayden was blinded by her outgoing personality and model looks. Yet her desperation to become friends felt unnatural. When I began to receive calls, photos and presents supposedly from Livvy, I became spooked someone was targeting me, watching me. With my job, home and life on the line, I had to find out who was doing this to me. I knew I hadnt caused Livvys death; I still believed it was no accident. Someone else was guilty and I had to find out who before I was next


This is a fantastic, fast paced thriller. The beginning sucks you in with Livvys death and keeps your attention throughout. The best thing about this book is that the author didnt try to make you look way just for it to be someone else. Its exactly who you think it is, but the mystery is the why. Theres also the other mystery as to who was behind Livvys death, and I would have never figured it out! I bet that you wont be able to figure it out either. I also enjoyed that the author made it more realistic. Ria does some poking around of her own to try to figure things out, but she doesnt 100% figure it out. This is unlike other books who have the main character figure everything out with their sleuthing. This is a must read for thriller lovers.
