Grace hasn’t been the same since the death of her best friend Charlie. She is haunted by Charlie’s words, the last time she saw her, and in a bid for answers, opens an old memory box of Charlie’s. It soon becomes clear there was a lot she didn’t know about her best friend.
When Grace starts a campaign to find Charlie’s father, Anna, a girl claiming to be Charlie’s sister steps forward. For Grace, finding Anna is like finding a new family, and soon Anna has made herself very comfortable in Grace and boyfriend Dan’s home.
But something isn’t right. Things disappear, Dan’s acting strangely and Grace is sure that someone is following her. Is it all in Grace’s mind? Or as she gets closer to discovering the truth about both Charlie and Anna, is Grace in terrible danger?
There was nothing she could have done to save Charlie …or was there?
That was the best nail-biting page turner I’ve read in awhile! I could not put this one down.
First of all, well done Louise Jensen. Cannot believe this is a debut novel. Really great storytelling and writing. I could not for one second figure out where the plot was going to take me. In my humble opinion, it is the sign of a great thriller writer that the reader is left guessing a different alternative ending from chapter to chapter. She completely had me guessing that one character was the bad guy… but then – oh wait! – now I think this guy is in on it! I was constantly questioning every character’s motives, I trusted no one, and there was a constant sense of doom lingering. My heart was racing the whole read.
I also loved all the “British-isms” – the language, the food, the slang – all of it.
A really great psychological thriller, highly recommend!
Thank you Louise Jensen, Bookcouture and Netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
4.5 out of 5 stars.
