OMG what an emotional rollercoaster this book was. But before I go into my review… Here is what the Blurb says!
Who do you trust when everyone is lying?
My name is Tess Parker. Two days ago, I was in a car accident with my sister-in-law, Torrie. Before she slipped into a coma, she asked my husband and me to take care for her four-month-old son, Levi.
Yesterday, a woman claiming to be Torrie’s estranged sister knocked on our door. But Torrie has no siblings… or so she said.
She and my brother were only together a short time before he left, and Torrie has clearly been keeping secrets.
Today, another of Torrie’s ‘sisters’ has come to town. Both say the other is lying about who they are. Neither of them is telling the truth. Both of them want Levi.
Well, isn’t that one hell of an intriguing Blurb? I think so … so now you have a bit of background. Time to check out what I thought.
With the first chapter starting ‘the first thing I see when I open my eyes is blood; running down my left forearm, glazing the backside of my hand and dripping down my fingers.’ You know it’s going to be one hell of a ride.
And a ride is exactly what it was, forget ‘The Big One’ in BlackPool – THIS is even more entertaining and thrilling. I literally could not put this book down.
It has a little bit of everything in this book … lies, deceit, paranoia and oh the twists!!! You will not see them coming. You will not know who to trust in this book and it will teach you, you can NEVER know who you can trust. No matter how long you have known them.
If she wakes – had me on the edge of my seat most of the way through, to almost crying by the end.
This is the first time reading a book by this author and WOW. It has been added to my favourite reads of the year list and I will definitely be going back and reading his earlier work!!
