Thanks to NETGALLEY for allowing me to read and give an honest review. I enjoyed this novel very much, I like the authors writing style, she did a great job introducing you to the characters, letting you know parts of the background story, and still keeping you in suspense.
WOW! Quincy, Sam and Lisa all have something in common-they are all the survivors of a horrific crime. The girls never met each other, but they knew about each other. They are all trying to deal with what happened to them, each in their own way.
Quincy has started a new life-she’s a cooking blogger, with a boyfriend, Lisa wrote a book about her experiences. Sam just decided to disappear from society and live as an unknown. Even though the author tells each ones story, I think most of the story is about Quincy, I felt huge amounts of pain and symphony for her, I felt her fear. She has basically blocked what happened, that’s the only way she feels she can survive.
Sam shows up at Quincy’s door, and sort of moves right in, weird things start to happen, Sam tells Quincy what happened to her, and Quincy has a total meltdown, doing some horrible things. Lisa is found dead, Sam is really not a good influence on Quincy, but Quincy does slowly begin to remember things. She begins to doubt Sam’s story and begins to investigate.
Coop is a detective that was one of the first to the crime scene at Pine Cottage. He has become a big part of Quincy’s life, and always checks on her, he has her back. The police blame Joe Hannen, a man that just showed out of the blue at the cabin Quincy and her friends were at. Little did they know Joe had been released from a mental institution, of course he’s the killer. It’s obvious isn’t it? Or is it? Who did this horrible crime, why would Lisa commit suicide? These are questions you will be asking yourself, you are in for a big surprise.
My words to describe are: suspenseful, grim, gritty, terror, spine-chilling, traumatic.
I can’t wait to read the authors next novel.
