Synopsis: One split second can destroy your life forever
Single mother Jen Cornish is just trying to hold things together for the sake of her seven-year-old son Charlie. Until the day when she does an impulsive good deed to help a neighbour, setting off a terrifying chain of events that quickly spirals out of control…
When she is arrested for a crime she didn’t commit, Jen quickly starts to wonder if someone is playing a cruel game with her – or is she losing her mind?
Desperate to clear her name with the police, she must first untangle a chilling web of lies. But someone is watching her every move – and it isn’t just Jen who is in danger.
They’re watching her child as well.
What might seem as a risky behaviour for some, could appear to be the right thing to do for others. I did not support Jen’s decision to enter that house because that was, in my opinion, completely and utterly inappropriate, in every sense of the word. You do not just walk into a stranger’s house looking for a pen and paper, Jen!
This is a story about lies, deceit, power, and manipulation.
I quite enjoyed the story which was tinted with a rather realistic tone to it. Some of the characters’ traits could be found in real people, which is quite unfortunate and just like in real life, not all bad people face the consequences of their acts and that was brilliantly highlighted in this book.
In a nutshell, this book was a good read and even though the story does not pick up speed right away, it still managed to keep me interested till the very end.
I would like to thank the Publishers, NetGalley, and the Author for sending me an ARC of the book.
