Thank you Kim for the invite!

My Review…

This was my first book by the author and I can happily say that I now plan to read all of her books.  I like her writing style and I was quickly drawn into the story.

The characters were skillfully defined and I wasn’t sure who to trust ( I was going back and forth with my guesses)! Lizzy is receiving creepy messages and she is starting to worry.  Some of these developments gave me an eerie feeling. Lizzy doesn’t have the best relationship with her sister, Emma. They have been estranged for a few years, but she doesn’t consider her an enemy, but should she?

Her stalker starts to get a bit more aggressive and Lizzy is on edge.  I was determined to put my detective hat on and solve the mystery.  There were plenty of clues to piece together. In the end, I was shocked and surprised.  I didn’t see that final twist coming. The last few chapters were filled with tension and I just had to know how it was going to wrap up! The cat named Frank was an added plus for me.

I found this one to be a fast suspenseful read with some unforeseen twisty moments! A great pick for readers who like to keep guessing until the end!


~Book Description~

‘You don’t deserve a sister…’

Lizzy Beresford is at home alone when she hears a strange noise. Running downstairs to check, she discovers a threatening letter addressed to her. But who sent it?

As Lizzy receives more unsettling messages, she begins to doubt those closest to her – her boyfriend, her neighbours, her friends. Because the mystery sender seems to know everything about her.

And they want to destroy her perfect life.

Desperate for answers, Lizzy contacts her sister, Emma. She used to be her best friend. But they haven’t spoken in years. Not since the terrible argument which tore their relationship apart…

Surrounded by secrets and lies, can Lizzy trust her sister? Or is the shocking truth more dangerous than Lizzy ever imagined?

From the bestselling author of The Secret Mother and The Child Next Door, this absolutely unputdownable psychological thriller will keep you guessing with every heart-stopping twist. If you loved Gone GirlThe Girl on the Train and The Sister, this book is for you.

  2. Fab review! If you enjoyed this one, you will love her other books. I’m a huge fan of her psychological thrillers and I loved her other books even more than this one.
