Featured Reviews

I really enjoyed this book. As a fan of Nicola and Liane Moriarty I can see similarities in the style of writing and the three-dimensional nature of the characters. I really liked the main characters of Megan and Jess and the different ways they had coped with what happened to them, and I also liked the character of Bridget - I was rooting for all of them! They were relatable and the story was realistic., the kind of thing that could and does happen. The ending took me by surprise, which is always good. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable read. The digital copy I received contained lots of typos - missing hyphens and spaces and no capital letter Cs throughout!

Megan in her job as paramedic gets sent to a shooting and realizes its a man that ruined her life. From the off this has the shock factor and twists and turns many times over always keeping you guessing. I was not close in my assumptions as to what happened and the final twist was surprising. Did find at times the book went a bit into exploring a few too many potential suspects and felt it lost its way a bit on occasion. Tackles the difficult subject of rape and the challenges a court faces with that. Lots of characters to mistrust and perceptions of characters change utterly brilliantly. Clever, challenging, mysterious.

I really enjoyed this & found it to be a book that I just kept turning the pages on, just to find out who the culprit was. I liked Megan & Jess and the ways they coped with the night that ruined their lives. There's lots of twists & turns in here, and while I suspected the villain, I never guessed how they did it.
