My precious daughter. You have no idea how dangerous the world is. No idea of the horrors I’ve shielded you from. The things I’ve endured . . . our past.
We’ve been happy. We’ve been hidden. We’ve been safe.
But our perfect life is about to come crashing down.
Because they’ve found me. And they’re about to reveal my darkest secret . . . to you.
I’ll do anything to protect you, darling, because if you knew – I’d lose you forever.
You can never discover what I’ve done . . . or what I’m willing to do to keep you safe.
This was an interesting domestic thriller.
Annie and her thirteen year old daughter Izzy seemed to be having a happy life but then soon, someone seemed to threaten to end this happy life. The message demands Annie to give money and if Annie didn’t give the money on time, the person threaten to tell Izzy the truth. Annie would do anything, to prevent Izzy from knowing the real truth.
The story divides back and forth between present and past. Though there weren’t many twists or turns, the story itself was quite engaging and the author did a good job of drawing the reader into the story. Annie seemed to be a courageous character and in my opinion, I like reading the past part more than the present part. Also, the ending to me wasn’t very satisfying but nonethless this was actually a good thriller. Overall, if you are looking for a good domestic thriller that will keep you in suspense then try this book out. Worth four stars.
Many thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
