TGIF book friends!
Thrilled to share with you today my review for this twisted juicy psychological thriller! This was a read with my BOOK BESTY’s and as always we had a fabulous discussion! It is always so much fun to try to figure out what is going on?💕💕💕
WOWZA! This was psychological thriller PERFECTION!
This book had me riveted from cover to cover… it was one of those books that I flew through and as I got closer to the end I wanted to slow down, because I was not ready to let this book go…. but as much as I wanted this book not to end, I needed to know what all had happened, and what was going to happen next…. because let me tell you what, Camilla Way had me completely stumped!
This book starts out with two seemingly separate storylines, That you know are somehow connected… but how? Clara wakes up to find her boyfriend luke’s phone, but no Luke…. where is he? Did he runaway? Was he kidnapped? Clara knows he was being stalked? But by who? And why? 30 years earlier in 1986, beth a loving stay at home mother is struggling to raise her troubled daughter Hannah… OK troubled might be an understatement Hannah is pretty much a psychopath…. her actions, words, and looks were simply chilling, and her character was portrayed so perfectly and realistically … seriously I had chills running down my back from some of her evil looks!
So how are Clara and Beth’s stories connected? This book had my mind spinning, I had so many theories going on, most of them pretty convoluted… this was a group read with my book Besties and we were all scratching our heads trying to figure this one out… and as Camilla Way began to weave these stories together the fog began to lift and it became crystal clear…. Crystal clear that this was one Hot mess! So many lies leading to so many secrets, and so many secrets leading to so many lies….
This was a fast-paced addictive read that will keep you glued to those pages…. A book that will keep you guessing until the bitter end, if you figure this one out… my hats off to you! Strongly recommend to all psychological thriller lovers, the twists and turns in this one will leave you reeling!
*** A huge thank you to Berkley Pub for my copy of this book ***
About the Book
When Clara’s boyfriend, Luke, disappears, everyone believes that he’s left her, but Clara thinks she knows the truth. Recent evidence suggests that Luke had a stalker, and Clara worries that he’s been kidnapped. Then Luke’s older sister, Emma, who vanished twenty years ago, suddenly reappears.
Emma wants to help Clara with her search for Luke, but she refuses to talk about what happened–even though it nearly destroyed her family when she vanished. And the deeper Clara digs into Luke’s mysterious disappearance, the more convinced she is that the two incidents are connected.
