This is the first book ever to spin my head around so many times I got vertigo honestly one of the best reads. If you like thrillers and mystery must read this. Going to by her next book "In her eyes ".
I was expecting your standard fare, psychological thriller about a toxic friendship between two women, and somehow I found myself smack dab in the middle of the craziest psychopathic thriller I have read in AGES. This book is AMAZING.
I literally can't review this at all in depth, as it would give away key secrets to the plot, but I will say that I am very used to thrillers where the twists come at you in the last third of the book. Not this story though, no ma'am. This story had crazy ass twists coming at you from the beginning. It is the wildest ride.
The one thing I can say, without fear of spoiler, is that I am LOVING a book that is set in very current timelines - there is something really fun about reading a story that could arguably be taking place right now. The technology and pop culture references in this are spot on (I'm looking at you Chris Hemsworth) and that makes it a slightly more fun read for me.
But other than that, my lips are sealed. Just GET THIS BOOK, and I defy you to put it down once you fall into the story. A 2019 MUST READ, hands down.
This psychological thriller is skillfully written. The reader is led to believe things about a character only to have those beliefs turned upside down when the next chapter continues the story from another character's point of view. James is a pawn between Lizzie & Becca though he doesn't know it.
I couldn't put this down! I thank Sarah Alderson for writing this so the reader isn't blindsided at the end like some authors have recently done with this type of novel.
I read a ton of books of this genre so I figured out some 'twists' early on, but still found the author did an amazing job of storytelling and had me hooked from the start. Loved the pacing and unveiling of the clues. The dual unreliable narrators kept me a bit unbalanced , just like Becca's high heels. Loved the dark ending. The red herrings and misdirection were skillfully displayed but I feel a few more characters would have elevated the puzzle for the reader even more. But a solid 5 stars!
