I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Author Dea (D.H) Poirier is the author of NEXT GIRL TO DIE, which hit #1 in the Amazon charts, and the bestselling thriller FIND ME IN THE DARK. She was raised in Edmond, Oklahoma, where she got her start writing in creative writing courses. She attended The University of Central Oklahoma for Computer Science. Later, she spent time living on both coasts, and traveling the United States, before finally putting down roots in Central Florida. She now resides somewhere between Disney and the swamp.
“Someone is messing with me.”
Adele is the only child of two successful television counselors, who died tragically. She’s always had a bit of fame helping her throughout her career. When her husband disappears, Adele starts learning a lot of truth. Some she was prepared for, and some the leaves her speechless.
OH. MY. STARS. This was a fast pace thriller that hit the ground running. The intensity starts at an eight and only escalates as you turn the pages.
I had conflicting feelings regarding Adele. I wanted to like her; she’s intelligent, capable, and strong. But she is also secretive and not always very friendly.
The way this plot fell apart, came together, collapsed, then imploded was brilliant—very Gone Girl. The twists will smack you in the face and leave you speechless.
The last half of this book gave me whiplash, but the final chapter- wow! There was no predicting anything within this novel. The ride is wild! All I’ll say is this: hold on tight.
