KKECReads Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Kathryn Croft is the bestselling author of eleven psychological thrillers and to date she has sold over one and a half million copies of her books. After twelve years living in London, she now lives in Guildford, Surrey, the place she grew up, with her husband, two children and two crazy cats.
“We all have secrets, don’t we?”
Lucy is a devoted mother. She adores her children, and husband. When tragedy strikes, the last thing she expects is for her son to be named a suspect. Now, it seems she is the only person who believes in his innocence- will the truth really set her free?
I enjoyed how fast-paced this book was. I devoured it in a matter of hours. The timing and the pacing within the story made putting the book down impossible.
I enjoyed the multiple perspectives and timelines used for the narration of this book. It was awesome seeing the same situations from three different people.
The characters were all well done. I liked Lucy; she was loyal and unyielding when it came to protecting her kid. Carrie was a fantastic character and a beautiful representation of grief.
I figured out the twist, but the journey to confirming I was correct was great. The way the puzzle pieces all fell, it was murky for a while. There were moments when everyone was a potential suspect!
If you enjoy books that get your heart racing and are impossible to put down, this is for you!
