‘All I can say is wow! I rarely give a book 5 stars… I really could not put it down.’ Goodreads reviewer
A suspenseful read, very twisty-turny. Lots of really shocking scenes too. There were a lot of secrets and lies. I was suspicious of everyone, wondering if they would be the missing link. As the conclusion was reached I was gobsmacked, I never guessed at all.’ StefLoz Book Reviews

My Thoughts & Review

Gosh what a belter of a book.
Louise Jensen certainly knows how to crank up the tension and keep it there throughout an entire book. It was impossible to predict which way this book was going and I was wrong footed every time. I stopped trying to second guess the outcome and was glued to every page, turning the pages frantically to find out what happened next. 

A family member went through the nightmare of infertility and repeated IVF failures and I remember the terrible anguish and desperation so vividly described here. 
Most of the characters in this chilling tale are hiding something. There are long held secrets and apparently hidden motives for their actions.

Who is telling the truth? The ending when it came was totally unexpected and had a real twist. Cleverly and devilishly plotted 

As a psychological thriller, it does what it’s supposed to do. Totally suspenseful and chilling.
