Easy to read, intense, twists I never saw coming
Michael and Angela are having fertility issues, but they have a good marriage, a happy life. Until one day, Michael’s ex-wife, Erica, shows up and says that her 9 year old daughter, Felicity, is Michael’s daughter that resembles his dead sister and that Felicity is missing. This books takes place over the course of just one crazy, life-changing night.
The characters were very well drawn, the plot moved quickly and there were twists I never saw coming. This was a captivating, unpredictable, fast-paced psychological thriller.
I would like to thank Netgalley and Berkley Publishing Group for my copy in exchange for my honest review.
