I was intrigued by the blurb on this one and as it isn’t what I usually go for in a read I’d thought I’d give it a try.
I can see why it got such high ratings for me it didn’t quite work out.
I found the beginning to be extremely slow but the author wanted to give us a background to both characters in the book. The timeline confused me as Kyle was 2010s and Rebecca was 2007 I think.
The characters are three dimensional and the book has many a twist and turns but unfortunately the emotions I wanted to have been stirred up in me with a psychological thriller just didn’t happen.
This is me and not the book.
