Corinne seems to be having a perfect life and after failed IVF attempts, this was the last attempt she could have a baby. She was very close to her father who was apparently a renowned architect and her father had made a doll house for her and her sister. So when the parts of the doll house starts turning up in Corinne’s flat, Corinne gets confused and anxious…

I didn’t expect this book to be really good. So much of twists and turns at each chapter, fast paced that will keep you at the edge of your seat and the writing was good that I got engrossed into the story! The first part of the book was a little boring but soon towards the middle, the story got gradually interesting and fast paced with more and more odd and weird but cruel things happening to both Corinne and Ashley. The ending was a bit dramatic and unexpected though was a bit predictable as well, but nonetheless it was really good. This is the first book I have read from this author so I am looking forward to read more books from this author in future!

This book is unputdownable and worth four stars!
