Grace hasn’t been the same since the death of her best friend Charlie. She is haunted by Charlie’s words, the last time she saw her, and in a bid for answers, opens an old memory box of Charlie’s. It soon becomes clear there was a lot she didn’t know about her best friend. When Grace starts a campaign to find Charlie’s father, Anna, a girl claiming to be Charlie’s sister steps forward. For Grace, finding Anna is like finding a new family, and soon Anna has made herself very comfortable in Grace and boyfriend Dan’s home.
This is a first rate psychological novel, and from a debut author to boot! This novel seriously plays with your emotions. You grieve with Grace at the death of her friend. You mourn with her the dying of her relationship with Dan. You cheer for her as she finds a new best friend. And then the chills start to run down your spine.
No spoilers here folks, suffice it to say that this is yet another fab offering from BookOutre who have an uncanny knack for finding the best unpublished crime and psychological thrillers. I received a copy of the novel via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Click on the cover to go to the book page on Amazon.
