I purchased this title on Amazon, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Tarryn Fisher is the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of nine novels. Born a sun hater, she currently makes her home in Seattle, Washington, with her children, husband, and husky. She loves connecting with her readers on Instagram.
“Here, they asked and expected to receive.”
Rainy tries to live a secluded, private life. But her partner insists she makes an effort with the wives of their neighborhood. So she does, and she disappears as early as possible. When a girl’s trip takes Rainy to Lad Vegas, she is haunted by memories of her past she would rather forget- until her boogeyman walks back into her life.
Good gravy, can Tarryn Fisher tell a story! I loved how this story was told, the alternating periods. And I adored Rainy as our main character; she is an absolute hero.
I love how Tarryn intertwines trauma in her characters’ lives and uses it as a motivator somehow. For Rainy, it’s her art. It’s so powerful, and it gives the character their power back.
I found the pace of this novel well done. In the past meeting, the present was well executed. And I loved that Rainy was a Washington transplant, having moved from New York.
This was twisted, dark, and beyond disturbing. Tarryn has a talent for bringing bad guys to life in the most realistic manner. I could not put this book down; it is intense.
When you think things couldn’t get any worse, they do. And Tarryn paints a devastating portrait with her characters. She writes about such wicked mean women, which balances her tough as nails women so well.
Everything about this book is a home run. Fast-paced and thrilling, twisted in the most unexpected of ways, you will be on the edge of your seat until the very end.
