My family gathers around the large oak table in our beautifully renovated home. I’ve put on a dress and lit candles, and there’s a wonderful aroma coming from the dinner you’ve so lovingly prepared. I feel your hand squeeze mine as you top up my glass and ask about my day as a doctor in our small town. It’s the perfect domestic scene, except for one tiny fact: I think my husband is dead, and you are just another patient of mine…
I had no choice but to let you in. If I laugh at your jokes and run my fingers through your hair, maybe I can delete the photos on your phone and find the truth about the night I can’t remember, just before my husband left on the trip he never returned from. Perhaps my son and I will have a chance at a normal life again.
But as I carefully piece together the shards of what really happened that fateful night, only one thing can possibly be true: everyone is lying, even me…
WHAT THE ACTUAL HELL DID I JUST READ?
Wow! This book was SO. DAMN. FABULOUS!
I was lucky enough to get this as an Advanced Reader Copy in exchange for my honest review. Honestly… if you are a psychological thriller fan, what the bloody hell are you waiting for? This book was extremely fast paced and had me gasping in shock many times! The twists were insane and continued to shock me right up to last page!
I LOVE how Samantha Hayes expertly inserted a “Then” chapter that at first, seemed a tad disconnected but kept me wondering how the past fit together with the present. And… OMG! 🤯 Each “Then” chapter revealed a little more detail which created a niggling suspicion about who the cast of characters were then and who they are now. I NEVER saw it coming!
I can’t give this twisted book enough crazy, disturbing, creepy, spine tingling stars! I am confident when I say… it is most definitely a MUST READ!
