Well, well, well... Mrs. Hoover is taking a dive into the dark side. I cannot say I am disappointed. If you follow my reviews, you know I prefer the dark and twisted books. They are my happy place.

I had no clue what this book was about when I started it. I rarely read a book's synopsis, but I never read them for Hoover's books. Judging by the cover, I assumed it was going to be a darker story, I just didn't have a clue of what I was getting into.

This haunting, disturbing tale left me feeling bereft. Of what, I am not sure. I just felt unsettled. A little unsure of my own sanity. And maybe a little unsettled over Hoover's sanity too.

This book is not a typical book for Colleen. The characters and their actions are nothing like she has written before. For her to have switched gears in such a dramatic way, and yet still get inside these characters heads in such a realistic way shows just how talented of a writer she is. Not that we didn't already know that. This book just further proves it.

I always say not every book is for every person. Not all of Colleen's books have been for me. However, this one definitely was. And it may not be one for everyone who is a devoted fan of hers. Just know that there is not one bit of unicorns or rainbows in this book.
