For the first time she dares to believe she can live a normal life. Then, on the 20th anniversary of that day, she receives a card. Someone knows the truth about what happened. Someone who won't stop until they've destroyed the life Leah has created. But is Leah all she seems? Or does she deserve everything she gets?

Everyone has secrets. But some are deadly.

Exciting Until The End!!

I really loved this book, as I do everything I’ve read by her. This was my 4th Croft title and I enjoyed even more than the prior 3. I loved the way the story altered between flashbacks and current time and slowly built the story and background at the same time. I also really loved The narrator. The ending was a surprise and I really loved how we were given closure for the main character!

Dribbling the Plot

The author can write well with a wonderful turn of phrase but she needs some help with the plot. The later story was a solid mystery if a bit predictable but chapter after chapter of the earlier story was badly paced. I kept thinking, "Get to the point already...". The early story was needlessly tedious. The ending was also no big surprise.

Narration was spectacular.

I just kept waiting and waiting for this book to get better- it did towards the end. But the end.... ugh.

Just Average

I didn't love this book. The narrator did a good job but the story was ... not great. The main character is weak not to mention the worst judge of character ever. The supporting characters (high school friends) are annoying. I kept waiting for something to happen. It did pick up a little towards the end but, overall, I wasn't very impressed.

Not great

I usually like this author's books but I really didn't care for this one. I had a difficult time getting through it. It was pretty boring and the ending wasn't exciting enough to make up for it. The main character was difficult to connect with too.

Struggling for self-acceptance

It was slow listening to the protagonist’s maladaptive response to an awful event that is not fully explained till the very end.

Heart-Pounding Read

If you love psychological thrillers, this is a real page-turner and worth your time. Highly recommended for it's taut and emotionally-believable narration of the story. It makes you wonder who is responsible for what and keeps you guessing throughout until the end, which is unexpected but seems believable. Love Lisa Coleman's narration.

I had high hopes

The story had potential and I stuck with it, hoping it would finally take off. It didn't.
