The second book I have read from this author and an intense psychological thriller.
Tara is planning her dream wedding–she was going to get married soon and move with her new husband Lucas to Australia. But then the discovery of a body in Huntley Lodge, where long time ago, Tara shared the lodge with her friend, Faye and Andrieu during their college years prompted the police to question Tara. The victim’s name is Avril Ryan and according to the police, Tara was the last person she had called before she was murdered. But despite the police’s suspicion, Tara has never met Avril Ryan nor ever met and wondered how on earth this girl got her number…
The story is told from the perspectives of Tara and Faye–Tara works as a barista in a cafe while Faye is a doctor. While Tara sounds friendly and a bit naive, Faye on the other hand sounds like a disturbing character with a vendetta against Tara for something Tara had done during their college years. We do not know which character is telling the truth so the unpredictability of the characters is something I like. However, since there were not much suspects, the one who actually murdered Avril Ryan was obvious and also not much of twists and turns you would expect in a fast paced thriller. Nonetheless, the writing was good, the author did a good job drawing the reader into the story. I also would say that the plot is also good as the thought of a discovery of a dead body actually intrigued me.
Characters wise, I think I like Tara, though despite the fact that in the beginning I couldn’t stand Faye’s character, I started to like her towards the end.
Overall, this is a good thriller that will keep you hooked into the story–worth four stars!
Thank you Netgalley and Hera publishers for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
