Draws you in immediately
Reviewed in the United States on January 1, 2020
With the kind of writing that draws you in immediately and gets those pages flying, this thriller is well worth a read. It’s got a mysterious feel that will leave you wondering who you can trust, how things will play out, and what exactly is going on.
You’ll want to go into this one blind, so the only storyline details I’ll share are how things begin. We meet Brienne, a young woman who was attacked 6 months ago. Since the attack, her whole life has changed - she doesn’t leave the house, she suffers from memory issues, and her only company is her new tenant. Niall moved in a few months ago, and he’s become more than a tenant. Though they have a platonic relationship, Brienne considers them friends and wouldn’t be opposed to exploring more. But when she discovers someone may have stolen her identity around the time of the attack, she’s thrown for a loop and wants to seek out some answers.
This isn’t normally my genre, but I thought I’d give it a try because it’s a First Reads selection for January. And it sucked me in immediately - there were times when I was rooting for Niall and Brienne to get together (since I’m a romance lover), and times when I was sure he was up to no good. One thing is for sure - this will keep you second guessing things for a long time.
