I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Jennifer Hillier imagines the worst about people and then writes about it. Born and raised in Toronto and a proud Canadian, she spent eight years in the Seattle area, which is where all her books are set.
“Everywhere you go, there you are.”
Joey grew up the child of abuse. Her mother didn’t protect her as she should have. When Joey died in a tragic fire, that should have been it. Paris has a past she can’t tell anyone about until someone from her past becomes a person in her present. Now, all of her self preservation is going to be tested.
Holy. The twists in this novel just kept coming. I really enjoyed how this story was told. I liked that is was broken into part, each explaining that period of time.
The alternating perspectives were good. The characters were fantastic, and their buildups and story arcs were solid.
I devoured this book. It’s hard to find a good place to pause- because as the story unfolds you find yourself being dragged in another direction.
The ending of this novel was fantastic. This would make an amazing TV show if done correctly. The twists and turns were brilliantly played.
