Blurb : Scarlett Garner doesn’t remember anything before the age of four—but a car accident changes everything. She starts to remember pieces of a past that frighten her. A past her parents hid from her…and a secret that could get her killed.

 

Review : Never would I have expected the twists and turns of this novel. It fascinated me from beginning to end and the suspense towards the end made it a page-turner that I could hardly put down. Yep I know you are now looking at the star rating I gave and you are thinking … “I wonder if she made a mistake” when giving only 3 stars.

 

Sadly not – I really liked the plot, my problem was more the way it was written. A story with this much content and anticipation needs more feeling and that was what was missing for me.

 

I could not feel with the leading characters. There was so much happening and to me as a reader it was like a newspaper story … it did not involve me … and what might be alright in a newspaper story does not work for a novel. But still a good read …
