I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Casey Kelleher was born in Cuckfield, West Sussex, and grew up as an avid reader. Whilst working as a beauty therapist and bringing up her three children together with her husband, Casey penned her debut novel Rotten to the Core. Its success meant she could give up her day job and concentrate on writing full-time. She has since written fourteen books.
“What kind of a woman could do that to a child?”
Emily wants to avoid remembering her past. It’s dark, painful, and wrong. Sasha wants to learn more about where she came from. Who was she? Why can’t she remember? Cecilia is trying to be the best parent she can be, but she struggles to find balance.
This was a wild ride. The way this story was layered was smart, and the plot was intricately presented, enticing me to keep reading.
The characters in this book were all well done. The depth, detail, and emotion were brilliant. There was so much humanity represented in various forms.
There are so many twists and turns in this book. I have whiplash, but the ride was worth every moment. I couldn’t put this book down- the storyline was engaging, and the pacing made finding a stopping point difficult.
The use of time and coincidence was clever. Revenge is a great motivator, as is learning to act normal.
