This is the first book I have read from this author.
Cassie is suffering from the death of her son, Josh, who apparently committed suicide by jumping in front of the incoming train. She and her husband, Adam are overcoming with grief at the death of Josh, until a mysterious girl named Kim turns up, with a baby, named Samuel, saying that she was the girlfriend of Josh and that Samuel is his baby. Both Cassie and Adam are coming into terms of Josh having a baby with a girl named Kim who they had no clue about. The baby is a mirror image of Josh but both Cassie and Adam are questioning about Kim’s connection with Josh. And after Kim turned up, Cassie receives anonymous text messages, threatening to reveal a secret, a secret that Cassie had buried years ago and if that secret was revealed, her marriage to Adam might come to an end and everything will be ruined.
I have to say that the plot line is really good and it got more interesting and intriguing with unexpected twists starting from the middle of the book towards the end. The ending of the book was really unexpected, did not really see that ending coming and also the connection!!!! I must say, towards the end, I felt more like I was in some part of a hit and run chase in a criminal show. Too much drama in the book, which was a bit OK to the plot of the story, considering what Cassie, as a mother is going through. Some parts of the story was however not very realistic and some parts were realistic.
The writing was flowing and was written in simple and understandable way and also it was actually a quick read so for those who are looking for fast read, this book might be a good choice. However, I think I didn’t really fancy the characters much. There were no characters that I could actually feel connection to and I didn’t really feel any of the characters.
Overall, this a nice thriller that will keep you are the edge of your seat. A perfect summer read for people looking to read a good thriller!
This book will be released on 3rd August 2019 and can check out a copy on Amazon and pre-order now! Overall this book worth four stars!
