I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
J.S. Ellis is the author of psychological thrillers and suspense and published her debut psychological thriller in 2019, which was an instant success and received great praise from readers. She writes stories about obsession and betrayal. When she’s not putting her characters in uncomfortable, difficult positions, J.S. Ellis likes to relax with her husband and their fur baby, Eloise. They live on the sunny island of Malta.
“And that left me with a dead end.”
Emily once again finds herself entangled with the beautiful but strange crew. When a wedding turns ugly and results in someone dead, Emily has to figure out what happened that night. The only problem? She only remembers waking up in a bed that didn’t belong to her.
This was a wild ride. The mystery was thick and intense from the first chapter. A lot happened throughout this book, and it was like the fuse that had been lit in the previous books just led to this explosion.
We get to know Jan and Sasha much more in this book, which is nice. It’s another side to this bizarre coin. Emily is just as present, though she can’t remember what happened or how she ended up in bed with Jan.
There was a wild cast of characters in this book, and just when I thought the plot was going in one direction- there was a plot twist. The way this story unraveled was fantastic. This insane house of cards was waiting for the slightest reason to blow over.
The ending was the most jaw-dropping reveal. This series has been such a ride. Secrets surrounded by beauty it’s a dangerous thing.
