When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it’s her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn’t want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?
(4 / 5)
Ok Whoa!!! I was not expecting this book to go that dark and twisted there towards the end. I really thoughtthat this was going to be your run of the mill “Sleeping With the Enemy starring Julia Roberts,” but it really wasn’t. It had all the elements of the Julia Roberts movie, but things got so crazy there towards the end. I can usually predict what the ending of my book is going to take me or the “whodunit” aspect but this one was surprising, which is totally refreshing. I can totally see this being made into a movie, it was that good.
WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THIS BOOK
Good plot lines and great twists. Good surprises along the way. When I got to the last 20% of the book I couldn’t put it down until I had finished and saw what happened. I’m going to spoil it just a little bit for you here and tell you that the author doesn’t kill the dog off in the book, which makes me very happy. I hate it when they kill the dog.
Nowadays when I read a good mystery book similar to this one the characters are all so detestable (which I have said so many times) it’s hard to connect with them. This book was different, you liked the mother even if she was hypersensitive about her ex-husband. You like the daughter even though she is being so dumb and acting like a stupid teenager. You even can feel for the evil wife beater ex-husband. A little.
It jumped back and fourth through time and back and fourth between the mother and the daughter and it did so in way that wasn’t confusing or distracting at all. The story flowed seamlessly throughout and I thought it was just fantastic storytelling.
It was a quick read and a stand alone novel.
Nice twist at the end. Love that.
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE ABOUT THIS BOOK
Okay, not much really. Even though I said above that I liked that the teenager was easy to connect to as a reader, she did make me want to punch myself in the face a couple times. LIKE WTF KID. Your mom worked so hard to get you away from this bad guy and you are just jacking stuff up at warp speed.
It wasn’t a breakneck page turner until the end book, but it was a steady one with a decent build up and a pretty decent twist in the end, worth the read. It has definitely turned me onto the author and I will be putting more of her stuff on my tbr in the future.
*I got this book for free in exchange for a fair and honest review from NetGalley.*
I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone that liked a suspense thriller with a twist at the end. 4/5 stars.
