For review

MY thoughts:
I must say, well done, well done! I love a good twists and here I got several. Let me show you.

I think, no, yes, no. Dang!
Oh no, oh oh oh no! Whaat?
.....NO WAY!

There you go, lol, those were my feelings for the twists that kept on coming. They were perfect!

Because it feels rather light, it is easy to read, but at the same time you feel tensions running through it. And secrets are coming out.

The book is about tree women, Lizzie, who sees a crime and then we go back, and then what happens after that horrible event.

Emma, who has a secret in her past. I liked Emma, she just tries so hard and her husband is so controlling in ways. But she is happy ...

Stella, Emma's daughter, who is starting to think that her mother is hiding something. 

And I kept wondering how it would all fit together. As we see two POVS in the present and one that is moving to the present.

But yes those twists were the best thing, I really like how the author handled them. She is a great writer and she sure made me want to read more by her. I like being surprised. 

Some secrets just can't stay hidden. *music of doom*

Great book!
